school

King Edward Elementary School is located in Amiskwaciwâskahikan ᐊᒥᐢᑲᐧᒋᐋᐧᐢᑲᐦᐃᑲᐣ (Edmonton) on Treaty 6 territory. We honour the diverse Indigenous peoples whose ancestors’ footsteps have marked this land for centuries such as the Nêhiyawak, the Papaschase First Nation, Dene, Tsuut’ina, Anishnaabe, the Nakota Sioux, the Niitsitapi, as well as Métis and Inuit and now settlers from around the world. We extend our appreciation for the opportunity to live and build community on this territory.

This is a living and evolving acknowledgment. We are making efforts to unlearn and learn in order to improve our relationship to the people and physical presence of this space.

Welcome message from King Edward Elementary School Parent Advisory Council (KEEPAC) Chair Jesse Enns Power

We couldn’t be more proud of our little community school in the heart of one of the best neighbourhoods in the city. Parents and guardians (including grandparents, aunties, and uncles) play an important role in the health of our school community – inside the classrooms and out. From the creation of a community garden, to the funding of our art’s enrichment program, field trips, and library collection: our school wouldn’t be what it is without the involvement of families and their participation in our parent council. In this bizarre time, when the community is constrained by health measures, KEEPAC is exploring new ways to bring our community members together. We are tackling essential issues such as racism, diversity, and inclusion in order to make our school community even better. We want to build relationships with our Indigenous Elders and Knowledge Keepers and learn about the history of this land where our school now sits. We want to strengthen relationships with community partners. Please join us!
