Principal’s Welcome

Located on the shores of the North Saskatchewan River, in Treaty 6 Traditional Territory is Mother Earth’s Children’s Charter School. We are a close knit and caring community with a vibrant population of First Nations learners. We believe that every student possesses their own unique set of gifts and talents that exist within them, and it is our responsibility and privilege to help them discover and nurture these gifts.

We are proud to offer extensive opportunities for students in the greater Parkland area, including classes in Traditional Languages, Indigenous Arts & Crafts, and enhanced Phys Ed. We are a certified NASP (National Archery in the Schools Program) school which provides students from grade three to nine with the opportunity to acquire skills and compete nationally and provincially. We have also offered students the choice to participate in the Experiences Canada exchange program…in the past this program has taken us to Quebec City, Ottawa, Muskoka and Kelowna. We hope to continue this program that brings so much to our students and school community.

We have been an APPLE school since 2011 and continue to “make the healthy choice the easy choice” every day, supported especially by our hot lunch and breakfast program. We receive support from APPLE Schools, Breakfast for Learning, Safeway/Sobeys warehouse and local food banks.

At MECCS we work towards sustaining our partnerships with all stakeholders by having an open door policy and are privileged to have an active parent liaison who ensures that our families and community are active participants in the school. We ensure communication with parents through newsletters and our Facebook page, and we are just beginning to utilize the Remind app.

We are looking forward to the upcoming school year, and to all that it might bring. MECCS will be celebrating its 14th year and we are excited to see what will come our way!

Hiy Hiy, Ish Nish
