  • Volunteering


    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.

    Lunch & Nutrition

    1. Lunch

    2. Breakfast and Daily Snacks

    3. General Nutrition


    Our school provides supervision during lunch and lunch recess on a regular or drop-in basis, as a service to parents.  Students are also allowed to go home for lunch, with parent permission.

    Lunch fees cover the cost of our lunch supervisors, 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 having lunch at school.

    Students who are attending a scheduled extra curricular activity, who do not regularly stay for lunch, will pay the daily fee.

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

    Breakfast and Daily Snacks

    Evansdale school's breakfast program and afternoon snacks are such an important part of learning at our school.  Having students with full stomachs promotes a healthy attitude toward learning.  In order to provide a nutritious breakfast and snacks to our students, we are extremely thankful to e4c and Food For Thought Edmonton (McKesson Canada) for making this happen.  Without the help of these wonderful people and organizations our students would not be afforded every advantage to achieve at school.

    Students are welcome to come between 8:10-8:25 to enjoy a healthy breakfast before school starts.  

    Healthy snacks are available in the office throughout the day.


    In the interest of promoting good nutrition and dental care, the consumption of 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 as “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.

Welcome to Evansdale School! 

We strive to create a safe and welcoming environment for all of our students and families and want to provide our diverse group of students with meaningful opportunities to grow as individuals and together as a group. This can only be accomplished through the combined efforts of our students, staff and families who, together, hold common expectations for appropriate student conduct and student learning.

We challenge our students daily to:

  • be the best that they can be by actively engaging in learning
  • accept their own and others' strengths and weaknesses
  • have fun while learning and celebrate success
  • see mistakes as an essential part of learning and growing
  • be accountable for their conduct and the development of positive relationships with others

Together, we create a sense of belonging where students feel safe, cared for, challenged and inspired to be their very best!
