Principal's Message

Welcome

​Welcome to Dr. Martha Cohen where we believe that all students can succeed. Dr. Martha Cohen School is named after a woman th​at was well known for her philanthropic spirit. She and her husband Harry, believed it was their duty to give back to the Calgary community; they wanted to be part of an amazing legacy of volunteerism and giving that embodies this city. We at DMCS also believe that it is important to be good citizens. We want our students to be part of something bigger than them, we want them to feel a strong sense of community, support one another and learn about themselves.
At DMC we also believe in the Chimera (The 'ch' is a 'k' sound, the 'i' is a long 'i' as in 'bike', and the 'a' at the end is a short sound like the 'a' in 'stella' or 'bella'. The 2nd syllable is stressed, so it's 'ky-mee-ra'.) not only as our school name, but in what it stands for; Courage, Perseverance and Wisdom. The Chimera embodies what we hope for our students; to be courageous in times of adversity, to persevere in times of challenge, and to be wise in times of decision. We have assembled a strong staff of teachers and support personnel for the students in this community of learners, to help guide them along the way. DMC is our home away from home, we are one big family coming together to prepare for the future and all that it brings.
We are very fortunate to be in a new building, with all of the new features that come with modern a structure. It is our hope that we all care and respect, not only each other, but the environment in which we live every weekday. Learning is our central purpose, and we know all students can and want to learn. We are here to guide and support them in all of their endeavors. We look to each family as part of this process, an extension of everything we do in school every day. We are all partners in this journey.
