    Welcome

    Gold Bar School is located in Southeast Edmonton, just blocks from the North Saskatchewan River Valley. It serves elementary students from the Gold Bar neighbourhood, many who are children of Gold Bar alumni who have moved back to the neighborhood to be members of a community committed to strong family values and caring for your neighbour. Many of our students begin in kindergarten and continue at Gold Bar through to the end of grade six. Within walking distance, River Valley Townhomes provide affordable housing for many of our families. Gold Bar School leases space to, and is committed to strengthening collaborative relationships with Gold Bar Day Care and Gold Bar Preschool and the many other community relationships that are of benefit to our students.

    We provide a diverse range of extra-curricular acitivites and clubs for students in order to enhance their citizenship and character qualities.  Students are held accountable to our TEAMS expectations:

    Think and act safely 

    Encourage and support others

    Always try your best 

    Make good choices 

    Show respect by helping, sharing and caring for others.  

    Our school community of staff, students, and parents work in a strong partnership to provide challenging learning experiences that help all our students achieve to their highest level.  We have created a welcoming and supportive learning environment that one feels immediately upon entering our doors.

    Dear Parents and Guardians,

    Welcome to new school year!  I love this time of year; so many things to look forward to, so much learning and growing to be accomplished.  It is ripe with expectation and excitement; from the shiny floors to the joy of carrying a new backpack filled with treasures to help the year be successful.  What could be more wonderful?  Whether you have chosed to return to in-person learning or begin the year online, please know that I look forward to journeying with each and every one of the students and their families throughout the year.  Please feel free to contact me at any time by phone @ 780 466 4116 or by email at michelle.korchinski@epsb.ca.

    We are a community that  provides a rich learning environment where students are active citizens who are encouraged and supported as they engage in their journey as lifelong learners and we are committed to building foundational attitudes, skills and knowledge with our community!

    We will be hosting our Virtual Welcome Back Celebration on September 10; please stay tuned to SchoolZone for more details.  Although this will look different than ever before. we are looking forward to coming together to continue to celebrate and to build positive relationships and connections with everyone.  

    Our first Virtual Parent Advisory Council (PAC) meeting will be Monday, September 21 at 6:30 pm.  All parents are invited to attend ; a Google Meet link will be provided on SchoolZone clser to the event date. Attending is a great way to get firsthand information on school events and to meet other parents.  Attending the meeting will also allow you to support your child(ren) and our school, in a variety of ways. I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of you for the work that you have done in the past to support our school.  Your continued support will enable us to provide even more opportunities for our students.

    For the safety of our students, please be aware that the speed limit within the playground zone is 30 km/h from 7:30am - 9:00pm at ALL times and parking in designated parking areas, out of bus zones and the staff parking lot, will increase safety and decrease congestion.  As well, when you are walking your child across the street to the school, it is imperative that you use the crosswalks, as drivers are more likely to notice someone crossing in a crosswalk as opposed to the middle of the street.  I understand that this may not be the most convenient option, however it is the safest. 

    A reminder that our hours of operation are:

    Monday – Wednesday & Friday 
    8:30                          Morning Bell 
    10:15 – 10:30            Recess

  • School Philosophy

    School Philosophy

    Gold Bar School is a community that provides a rich learning environment where students are active citizens who are encouraged and supported as they engage in their journey as lifelong learners.  We believe that each of our learners is unique and has diverse strengths, interests and needs which are valued and nurtured, and in so doing, each child will be prepared for increasingly complex life and work environments in the 21st century.  We believe strong communities are built through clear and open communication with parents, students and staff and thereby foster safe and secure learning environments for every child to realize their potential.  We believe in empowering our students by celebrating their successes, and by using restorative practices which seek to repair relationships that have been damaged, so that every voice is heard, valued and acknowledged.  We believe every child has the right and the responsibility to belong to our many communities and that each child has gifts that contribute to and enhance these communities, both within and beyond the walls of the school.  We believe success is different for every child and includes processes as well as the product, beyond academics, including social relationships, community building and citizenship.  We believe students will be engaged in leadership roles as they navigate their lifelong learning journey.
