    Volunteers are also always welcome.  Our community has changed significantly since the school opening in 1972, but one thing remains the same in all schools - children love to have adult attention and assistance. If you can volunteer even for an hour a week, please do not hesitate to call the office at 780-476-3331.

    1. Lunch Program

    2. Nutrition Program

    3. General Nutrition


    Our school provides a supervised lunch program on a regular or drop-in basis as a service to parents.  However, we encourage parents if at all possible to make other arrangements for lunch.  

    Lunch program fees collected cover the costs of the noon hour supervision, additional custodial services and equipment.  For example, all outdoor play equipment used during the noon hour, videos and games for rainy days, soap, paper towels and other supplies are paid for with the fees.  Students typically eat in their classrooms.

    Students staying for lunch are expected to behave in a respectful, responsible manner.  Students who are not cooperative will be asked to eat their lunch with another class or they may be temporarily or permanently suspended from the lunch program.

    Students not in the regular lunch program who stay for lunch to attend a scheduled extra curricular activity will pay the daily fee to attend and be supervised within the lunch program.

    FEES:  $13/child/month                 or $2.00 per day



     “Evansdale’s Nutrition Program” is such an important part of learning at our school.  Having students with full stomachs promotes a healthy attitude toward learning.  In order to provide nutritious snacks to our students, we must be thankful to those who help us make this happen: Evansdale PAC , local businesses , Edmonton Food Bank, Breakfast for Learning.  Without the help of these wonderful people and organizations our students would not be afforded every advantage to achieve at school.

     Breakfast for Learning  provides partial funding towards our nutrition program so we can offer our students a healthy start to their day.

    Breakfast for Learning, founded in 1992, aims to educate and empower communities to start and sustain child nutrition programs to enhance learning and healthy development of Canadian children and youth.

    As the country’s first national charity dedicated to child nutrition programs, Breakfast for Learning provides program funds, nutrition education resources and research to promote and demonstrate the vital link between child nutrition and learning.

    In the interest of promoting good nutrition and dental care, the consumption of gum, candy, soft drinks, and “junk food” is not encouraged in the school or on the playground.  We encourage parents to support our efforts and not include such foods in students’ lunches.  We wish to help our students make wise choices in their selection of foods.  Your assistance in helping your child make healthy food choices and in supporting this focus on nutrition by not sending such foods would be most appreciated.

    Each year, we have a number of children with severe allergies that may result in life-threatening conditions.  As a result, certain precautions may be taken in the classroom and specific school areas, including the identification of a classroom “allergy friendly”.  Parents and students are expected to adhere to the guidelines laid out in these instances.

    School Philosophy

    Evansdale is the First United Nations Rights Respecting School in Alberta.  We received our final certification (Level 2) in June or 2012.  We are starting with our first full year plan in 2012 and 2013 and look forward to student and parent participation.  This initiative fits perfectly with our Restorative Conduct model, and recognizes the rights and responsibilities of the immensely varied student population at Evansdale.  We are inclusive of all cultures and learning styles, and strive to provide the best education for all our students.  

    We focus on programming for our many English Language Learner students, and look forward to continued excellent cooperation with Edmonton Public Personnel, and our community partners including The Family Center, The Mennonite Center, and the Mulit-Cultural Health Brokers.  We are guided by the tremendous work our District has done in laying out the Literacy Plan for the 21st Century.
