    Parent Groups

    Lauderdale has an active School Council and Parent Advisory Council (PAC) that meets every 3rd Wednesday of each month in our staffroom starting at 6:00pm to discuss school activities, provide support to school initiatives and collaborate!   Please join us at these monthly meetings as this is another avenue for enhancing school involvement and parent, community school partnerships which we know supports student success!

    Our first meeting for the 2017-2018 school year is Wed. Sept 20 @ 6:00.  Please check your Lauderdale Calendar Magnet for all the dates of Parent/School Council meetings for this school year!

    We know that life is busy; many of us cannot commit to participating in School Council and PAC, but please ensure your continued involvement by supporting your child’s learning at home.  School involvement takes many forms and the most vital is the support you provide by asking about their daily activities at school, read, read and reading together, checking their backpacks daily, checking and signing the AGENDA’s daily.  Every student has an AGENDA that have been purchased by our School Council/ PAC’s fundraising efforts.  Our AGENDA’s are another way to be in contact with the school and your child’s teacher and be aware of school activities.  We use AGENDA’s daily!

  • Community


    Lauderdale School was built in 1954 and is surrounded by a wonderfully large park, with 3 full soccer fields and a baseball diamond.  We are also nestled against Lauderdale Community Hall, separated by a playground, basketball court and hoops and a skating rink.  We continue to celebrate 60+ years of Lauderdale School every November, by tavelling back to the 50's for a fun educational experience known as our annual "Sock-Hop" Family Dance.

  • School Philosophy

    School Philosophy

    At Lauderdale School, we maximize student achievement through high academic and behavioural expectations and a strong focus on teaching and learning.  Our students develop a strong sense of pride in their accomplishments.  They acquire the knowledge, skills and attitudes they need to be responsible and skilled participants in the community.  In a small school atmosphere, we offer a safe, caring environment where students and families feel a sense of belonging as a responsible, respectful and dedicated group of learners. We offer full day Kindergarten, and grade one to six programming in regular classroom settings. French as a Second Language is offered to students in division two.  An emphasis on music in all grades is encouraged.  We are also a district site for elementary students requiring a modified academic program.  As a staff we are focusing our efforts on Universal Design for Learning that will provide multiple means of representation, action and expression, and engagement for all students.  Using this focus we encourage our learners to be motivated, strategic, goal-oriented, resourceful and knowledgeable. Lauderdale is partnered with the Edmonton Public Schools Foundation and the Edmonton Oilers Community Foundation to support our full day kindergarten program.
    Lauderdale School works in collaboration with nineteen other schools through the North Central Catchment Schools (NCCS).  This work focuses on creating transition supports for all of our students in the North Central Catchment of Edmonton.  Our staff is working on building capacity around Universal Design for Learning to remove barriers encouraging student success, smooth transitions and increased high school completion rates.

Welcome to Lauderdale School!

We are a vibrant community school and fulfill an important role in our community.  As the future educational opportunities of students are linked to their elementary school experiences, our challenge is to develop a student's basic skills, a positive self-concept and to provide a set of experiences that will provide students an opportunity to achieve success. Lauderdale School values its volunteers and its relationships with community agencies.  Student growth is enhanced through these partnerships.  Parents and community members alike are encouraged to visit our school to see the wonderful learning that takes place in Lauderdale School.

Principal's Message

As the principal at Lauderdale School, I am committed to creating a safe and welcoming environment where students and teachers alike are encouraged to take risks and strive to be the very best that they can be.  There will be opportunities for conversations, collaboration and celebration.  Your support and encouragement will make a difference in the success of your children.

If you have any questions or concerns related to the best interests of our students, and their role in the school or community, I would encourage you to contact me personally at 780-475-8737.  Your ideas and concerns are appreciated.

Sheri Long - Principal
