School Supply Lists
To assist with the purchasing of school materials we have compiled a School Supply List page. These lists are created each year by teachers from each grade and are meant as a recommendation of the supplies your child will need throughout the year.
If you are parent, or know of a parent, who needs help purchasing school supplies this year we can help. Mundare School has once again partnered with the United Way for the 2015-2016 Tools for School campaign. Annually, Tools for School provides backpacks filled with school supplies to students in Kindergarten through Grade 12 whose families have limited resources. When classes resume, we will respectfully distribute the backpack to your child. To place an order contact EIPS’ Central Office at 780-464-3477.
All families using EIPS’ Student Transportation services for the 2015–2016 school year should have already received a tentative route schedule. Those required to pay applicable fees should have also received a separate invoice outlining payment information—we encourage parents to pay fees online. All transportation fees are due June 30, 2015.
If you have not receive a letter from Student Transportation yet, and would like to inquire about busing for your child, please contact Student Transportation at 780-417-8151. Updated route information and bus passes will be mailed to families in August.
A Message From the Principal
Mundare is a vibrant and growing school and community. Enrollment has increased dramatically over the past couple of years as new people move into the area and discover the great school that awaits their children. Currently, the school is small enough-with a student population of approximately 200, from ECS to Gr. 8. This offers an enviable educational environment. Our Gr.7 and 8 programs started in 2008 are now in full swing. Students enjoy a quality of school life that is but a dream in many places today:
- small class sizes
- special needs classes for children
- unlimited access to the library, computer lab and mobile computer cart
- individualized attention from both teachers and educational assistants
- personal atmosphere-everyone knows everyone, no one is lost in the crowd
Both the physical and the educational horizons are broad at Mundare School. Situated 45 minutes east of Edmonton on the edge of the town of Mundare. Certainly, we can see for a long way over the prairie landscape, but students also discover that their learning horizons can be even broader than the longest view. In the past school year alone, students have:
- competed in track and field competitions
- participated in a music festival
- presented a Christmas Concert that is a highlight of the year in Mundare
- enjoyed the Alberta Opera and various theatrical performances
- learned band or hand chimes (in grades 4 to 8)
- skied (cross-country and downhill), snow-shoed, skated, swimming lessons, and golfed
- enjoyed field trips to the Ukrainian Cultual Village, Space and Science Center, Fort Edmonton Park
- Gr. 7 & 8 outdoor education excursions
- like all schools in Alberta, we develop a special focus each year in our School Education Plan.
Our students educational exeriences are varied in the Arts, Sciences and Humanities and whose basic skills are firmly established in Language Arts and Mathematics! At Mundare School, students begin their careers as lifelong learners.
