  • Registration for 2021-2022 School Year

    Registration for 2021-2022 School Year

    Esther Starkman School is full in planned classes in Kindergarten to Grade 9 in the Regular Program. A Kindergarten student who is a resident and lives in the school's attendance area may still register.  We will now only accept resident students in these grades who newly move into the school’s attendance area for the regular program. A resident student of Edmonton Public Schools has at least one parent or legal guardian living in Edmonton who is not Roman Catholic. Non-resident students can enroll in another Division school with space in planned classes.

    If you are registering for Kindergarten or if you are new to Edmonton Public Schools, you must register online.

    NEW STUDENT REGISTRATION

    If your child is new to Edmonton Public Schools, you can register for school online. Visit the Division website to learn how to register for school.

Principal's Message

Dear Parents and Students,

Esther Starkman School is a Kindergarten to Grade 9 school. We accept registrations from the Primary Attendance Area of Terwillegar Towne and if space is available from the Secondary Attendance areas of Terwillegar South West, Terwillegar South East and Leger.  Please view the attendance maps under the Parents / Registration tab to ensure you live within our area if you are planning on registering.

It is the mission of Esther Starkman School to “ensure high levels of learning for ALL of our students.” We want our students to think, problem solve and apply the knowledge they learn so that they are exceptionally well prepared to succeed in our ever changing world. To that end, our staff works as a professional learning community engaging in job embedded professional development on a weekly basis. Our teachers are learners themselves, constantly improving their instructional practices and collaborating to create a diverse and rewarding classroom experience.

Esther Starkman is a community school that places great value on creating positive relationships with our parent community. We believe education is a partnership between parents and the school, we therefore strive to provide parents with up to date and relevant information regarding their child’s learning. Daily, through SchoolZone/Goggle Classroom, our parents will receive all the information they require to participate in their child’s school experience.  

On behalf of the staff,  I welcome you to Esther Starkman School.  We hope that your experience at Esther Starkman is rewarding and will cause you to believe as we do, that this truly is a school of “Excellence!”

Sincerely,

 

Sunita Sas

Principal

 

"Ensuring High levels of learning for all students"

 

The 3 Big Ideas: 

Focus on Learning

  • something is not taught unless the student has learned it. 

Focus on Collaboration

  • we are not an isolated collection of teachers under one roof, rather we are a team that works interdependently to achieve common goals 

Focus on Results

  • it is the results of our efforts that we are concerned with.  If we are not getting the results in student achievement that we are expecting, then we will change our actions to get different results.

4 Key Questions:

  1. What do we want students to know?

  2. How do we know if students have learned what we want them to?

  3. What do we do when students do not learn what they are supposed to learn?

  4. What do we do when students already know what they are supposed to learn
