Principal's Message

I am honoured to work as your partner in your child’s educational journey. Here at Lauderdale an amazing team of educators are devoted to providing high quality education that empowers each of our students to build the pathways towards living a life full of possibility. We are committed to providing safe, caring and engaging spaces for students here at Lauderdale School.

It is my strong belief that a whole child approach to education - one where both academic and non-academic needs of students are addressed - provides a supportive environment that recognizes the importance of the entire child. Looking at the whole student recognizes that each individual child requires a range of knowledge, skills and experiences that will enable them to engage and successfully prepare for the future.

I look forward to building relationships with the Lauderdale families and community. I recognize that your involvement and collaboration with school is critical to creating a successful learning environment. Please do not hesitate to be actively involved at Lauderdale and to connect with me to share your perspectives. Stay connected on SchoolZone, through newsletters and online apps used by teachers. As well, please feel free to contact us at (780) 475-8737 or email, alicia.brownson@epsb.ca. Together, we can be a team who is committed to your child’s success.

Lauderdale Lions are committed to our PRIDE, which represents the core values of PERSEVERANCE, RESPECT, INTEGRITY, DEPENDABILITY and EMPATHY. Through these values, we are building a school community that fosters kindness, connection and engagement in learning.
