    Parents of children who are current Hardisty students or who are attending other Edmonton Public Schools will be required to "pre-enroll" between March 12 and April 13.

    PRE-ENROL IN SCHOOLZONE 

    Sign in to SchoolZone between 9 a.m. on March 12 and 4 p.m. on April 16, 2018 to select your child's preferred school for the 2018-19 school year.

  • Instructional Focus

    Instructional Focus

    Hardisty School has a strong focus on student achievement. It is what we are all about.

    To that end we have zeroed in on Literacy and Numeracy. Our division one and two students have common literacy intervention reading group times everyday. Our divison three students have common language arts and math times that allow for flexible groupings and individualized instruction.

    We are proud of the gains we are making in these areas and continue to build the skills necessary to make today's learners, tomorrow's leaders.

Welcome


Welcome to the Hardisty Website!

It is now February!  Officially halfway through the school year!  Naturally, this turns our attention to preparing for the upcoming school year.  We are excited about the promise the planning for the new school year brings.  Hardisty Kindergarten to Grade 9 School is a warm and welcoming place.  

Our Learning Community

As a staff, we are committed to serving our students and their families to the best of our abilities. Our goal is to create a community where:

  • we see everyone as a learner - children and adults alike
  • we face with challenges by working to support our students and engage them in building the skills they need to succeed
  • we engage in clear and consistant communication with home, not only to inform, but also to seek input into how we can best meet the needs of our students
  • we are committed to continuous improvement in order to provide the highest quality education to our students and most effective services to our families

3 R’s

At Hardisty, our 3R’s - Respect, Responsibility, Relationships are front and center in our minds and hearts. You will see this commitment, not only in the halls on posters, but in our daily work. It is not simply an expectation for students but it serves as a basis for our decision making and how we interact as a school community.   Students, staff and parents are encouraged to show respect regardless of the actions of others, take responsibility for the learning and actions and to work to build relationships that create a positive, supportive and caring learning environment for all.  

Programming

We are home to 4 District Programs that support the communities we serve.  There are two K - 9 programs:

Community: This program serves families in the greater Hardisty are for regular Kindergarten to Grade 9 programming.  We are open to registration for any students within our attendance area and beyond.

Logos Christian:  This EPSB  alternative program is a non-denominational, faith-based program that incorporates Christian teachings into the Alberta Program of Studies.  The program is open to students throughout the city and is served by a designated Transportation Service Area for all grades.  The program features daily devotions and prayer in every classroom, biblical verse memorization, monthly chapels and worship for all students and several special events for students such as City Wide Chapel and Faith Day.  There is no fee to attend this program and it is supported by the Logos Society of Edmonton.  Please check their website at christian program.ca.

Interactions:  Hardisty hosts this District Center program for students in Grade 7 - 9 diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder.

Individual Support Program:  Hardisty hosts this District Centre program for students in grade 1 - 9 with several physical/medical disabilities.
