​Regular Program at the CBE

Even though most of our schools offer a regular program, no two are quite the same. All schools teach according to Alberta Education’s mandated curriculum, however a school’s focus, optional courses and school activities are as unique as every school.​​​

Welcome to McKenzie Lake School. We are a dynamic and caring learning community. We want you to feel at home. Being part of the McKenzie Lake School community means being actively involved academically, socially, and physically. It also means being respectful, responsible, safe and kind with yourself, your peers, staff and the community. Together we can make McKenzie Lake School an exciting and enriching place in which to learn and grow.

Learning Support

Our curriculum content is mandated in the Program of Studies provided by Alberta Learning.

At McKenzie Lake School we strive to personalize learning. Learning strategies are differentiated and designed to honour individual student needs. In addition, a “Learning Support Team” exists to work with teachers and parents in this regard. The LST is composed of the principal, the assistant principal/resource teacher, classroom teacher, Area V strategists, nurses and other specialists as required.

Any questions parents have regarding their child’s learning should first be directed to the classroom teacher. When necessary, follow-up meetings can be arranged with the teacher, parent, L.S.T. and/or an administrator by calling 403-777-6500, extension 0.

Homework

Parents and students are encouraged to set aside time each week night for home supported learning.

Kindergarten

Parents can help children develop oral language skills by talking about each school day, listening to their stories, and reading to them.

Grades 1 & 2

The motivation which comes from parent interest in children’s school work can be most valuable. Home supported learning at this level might consist of an informal review of the subject under study at school, reading books, viewing programs or visiting areas suggested by the school.

Grades 3 & 4

Formal assignments may be given at the discretion of the teacher. These may be assigned to students who need special attention, to students who have not completed regular classroom work, or may be an extension of the subject under study at school.

Special Note Teachers are not responsible for providing homework for families who choose to travel on student instructional days.

Early Development Centre

The Early Development Centres (EDC) supports pre-school children who have been identified with severe delays/disabilities. These may be delays in speech and language, social, emotional, or behavioral development, and/or physical/medical development. Through play in a language-rich environment, we are able to better prepare children for Kindergarten and beyond. Early intervention support is partially funded through Alberta Education’s Program Unit Funding (PUF). For more information about our program, please visit Early Development Centre Preschool Program on the CBE website or call 403-817-7612. ​​​​
