    School Profile

    Located in the Empire Park community, McKee School is named after George Albert McKee, a former Edmonton Public Schools Superintendent. It is our mission as professionals to inspire and instill successful learning for all students in a safe, respectful and culturally responsive environment.

    Our school shares property with the Duggan Health Office and Empire Park Community League. We are supported by the diversity and respect of the wonderful neighbourhoods that surround our school. We also benefit from the excellent support of our Friends of McKee Society who provide funding for many elements of our school and hold family oriented events at our school throughout the school year.

    McKee School offers kindergarten to grade 6 programming and we are a district site for students requiring the behaviour and learning assistance program. Our focus is on literacy across the curriculum and we are also a community of leaders that are developed through the PAX Good Behaviour Game (GBG), which creates a nurturing setting throughout the school and in every classroom. This is helpful for developing prosocial behaviours, citizenship and character development in our students. Our school also offers a number of programs to help students find success including daily reading and phonics awareness, Lucy Calkins writers workshop, and Response to Intervention (RTI).

    All of this helps us prepare our students for successful and healthy futures.

Welcome

to McKee School!

2022-2023 Message

We welcome all our new and returning families to McKee for the 2022-2023 school year! This year, McKee has experienced a significant increase in student enrollment and as such, we are closed in all grades. This means that only families who are newly moved into the area or the DMAA area are eligible to enroll at McKee. Enrollment is done online through EPSB and once we have received the digital registration form, our office staff can proceed with enrollment.

McKee is a place where students and families belong. The staff strive to create an environment where all are welcome and included. Our students participate in a number of leadership opportunities from being a member of the Lunch Buddy team, Astounding Announcers,  Assembly Crew, to name but a few that are new and emerging at McKee. Students participate in Loose Parts Play where their imaginations and collaborative opportunities take root. Students who appreciate music are able to partake in Choir and Handbells. 

We are very fortunate to have partners who support our multiple nutrition programs. Go Auto provides lunches once a week for those students who wish to participate. Food for Thought (sponsored by Qualico) provides nutrition top up for students in the form of fresh fruit and items for lunches, when needed. Food for Thought also provided an opportunity for students to plant a garden in spring with a harvest appreciated in the fall. The Breakfast Club of Canada along with  a generous grant from President's Choice Children’s Charity set the stage for a breakfast program available for all students every morning which has now been taken over by E4C. 

If you have questions about our school, please feel free to contact our office.

Yours in Partnership,

Angela Blanchette
