    Message from the Principal:

    Welcome back to all returning students, parents and guardians. To all our new students, parents and guardians, welcome to Ellerslie Campus School and in your transition please do not hesitate to ask for any assistance that you need.

    Summer comes and goes too fast with every year I get older. I miss the long summers when I was in elementary school myself, but I am glad to be back at school because the excitement of the students learning, laughing and growing is a special climate.

    pick up.

Principal's Message

Welcome to Ellerslie Campus,

Ellerslie School is a dual campus located in south east Edmonton with K - 9 programing.  Ellerslie functions as one collaborative learning community and embodies a rich history defined by academic excellence, student citizenship and exemplary teaching practices.  On the whole, Ellerslie Campus is a bright and vibrant place that comes alive with youthful excitement and an eagerness for learning from the moment students walk through the doors in the morning until the custodial staff locks the door at the end of the day.

The south campus is a unique building that models a perfect setting for Division 1 education and is home to Kindergarten and Grade two classes.  The north campus, home to the school’s main office and our Grades three to nine classes, is receiving a few upgrades to classrooms, offices and learning common areas to further support student learning and development.  We at Ellerslie see real advantage in having multiple age groups from elementary to Junior High in one building.

The thing that I am most proud of at Ellerslie is the staff’s commitment to the development of the whole child.  Our staff want every student to have an experience that shapes them successfully for life.  The staff is a dedicated group of professionals who work in a collaborative model.  Because of this, Ellerslie Campus is dedicated to high levels of achievement for all students. In collaboration with parents and community partners, we have created a safe and nurturing learning environment where the academic, physical, social and emotional needs of all our students are met.

I encourage parents, guardians and community members to get involved at Ellerslie Campus.  We welcome your input and look forward to working with you to ensure all students are successful.  If you have any questions please contact the main office.

Mr. George Hoyt
