Dear Parents, Guardians, and Community Members,
I am thrilled to be joining the amazing Killarney School Team for the 2016/2017 school year. On behalf of the staff, I would like to welcome those of you who are new to our school community this year and look forward to meeting all of you throughout the year.
Our school is located in Northeast Edmonton and serves families from across North Edmonton and from fifteen different elementary schools. Serving a diverse cultural and socio-economic population, Killarney offers a regular English program as well as the Arabic Bilingual, alternative program. Regardless of the program, the families that choose Killarney can count on an environment where each student is expected to strive for excellence and be a positive, contributing member of our community.
Killarney Junior High School has adopted the school motto of ACE. Staff and students work relentlessly with a focus on strong Academics, Character development, and Excellence in everything they do. Students are encouraged to be active participants both in the classroom and in the variety of extracurricular clubs and teams offered at the school. Student athletes, artists, and leaders will all find activities to exercise their body and their mind. This school wide emphasis on academics, character, and excellence supports our work as we continue to focus on high quality learning environments for all of our students.
Killarney Junior High School promotes and values the relationships that we have with our parent volunteers and community partners. Student growth is enhanced through these partnerships and with the relationships that we continue to build. Parents and community members alike are encouraged to visit our school to see Kodiak pride first hand.
If you ever need to speak with me or any of our staff members, please call the office or come by the school and we would be happy to engage with you. Together, we will succeed in offering the best educational environment and opportunities for all Killarney students.
