    Welcome

     

    Kensington School is full in planned classes in Grade 1, 2, 5 and 6 in the Logos Program AND in Kindergarten, Grade 4 and Grade 6 in the Regular Program. For the Regular Program, resident students in the attendance area may still register in Kindergarten. For the other grades in the regular program, we will now only accept resident students in these grades who move into the school’s attendance area. A resident student of Edmonton Public Schools has at least one parent or legal guardian living in Edmonton who is not Roman Catholic. Non-resident students can enrol in another Division school with space in planned classes.

    If you are registering for Kindergarten or if you are new to Edmonton Public Schools, you must register online.

    The word “Logos” was used in the name of the society because of its rich Biblical meaning. As the Gospel of John says, “In the beginning was the Word (Logos) and the Word (Logos) was with God and the Word was God. …The Word became flesh and dwelt among us” (John 1:1, 14a).

Welcome to Kensington School 

We are a kindergarten to grade 9 school with a k-6 Regular Community Program, 1-6 Interactions Program, 4-6 Literacy program and a k-9 Logos Christian Program serving approximately 375 students.

I look forward to welcoming back the school community this Fall as we work collaboratively with staff, students and families to begin a brand new year of learning.  We also welcome new families joining us as well!

Students at Kensington will have many opportunities to learn in a warm and welcoming environment led by caring staff.  Diversity and multiple perspectives are respected and valued every step of the way.   Classrooms, halls and outdoor areas are supportive spaces where students are heard and seen.  Building connections and relationships are part of the learning journey.  All members of our school show each other kindness and support each other as we learn and have fun.  A sense of safety and belonging for all is important to us at Kensington.

Students and staff are encouraged to explore, be curious, be creative and take risks in teaching and learning.  We believe that every student is unique and has tremendous potential to grow and pursue their greatest dreams.  Ideas and active participation are welcome from all school community members so that we can create lasting memories together.

Our staff here is committed to the success of every student by offering high quality instruction that is focused on developing literacy, numeracy, social and emotional skills. Through meaningful collaboration and professional development, we model to our students what it means to be a lifelong learner. We are motivated to see each student grow into extraordinary citizens that will make a difference and impact in this world.

Parents, guardians and families are an important part of the school community and we welcome open communication throughout the year.  Please feel free to call, email or connect with us in person so that we can build a partnership in support of student success.

I am passionate about teaching and learning! My role as school leader is to acknowledge strengths in those I serve and to inspire everyone to also find their passions.

I look forward to beginning a new year with you!

Yours in partnership,

 

Dao Haddad

Principal
