    NEW STUDENT REGISTRATION

     

    Families who need to register their child(ren) for school are welcome to do so over summer break. If you register over the summer, you will be contacted after staff return to school on Thursday August 20th, 2020 . See more information on this page about registering new students using our online form.

    Because schools remain closed to students and visitors due to COVID-19, new student registrations will now be submitted online. If your child is new to the Division, you must complete our school’s online registration form, fill out and upload the Student Registration form and submit supporting documents before your child(ren) can be registered for the upcoming school year. 

    Our school will no longer accept printed registrations. Do not drop off student registration forms at the school.

  • Our Goals

    Our Goals

    At LaPerle School our ultimate goal is to have every student achieve at least one year’s growth in relation to the curriculum standard each year. In previous years most of our students did achieve one or more years growth in reading and writing. To do this we place a strong emphasis in the areas of literacy and numeracy, specifically to engage students in learning through 21st Century Literacies across the curriculum. 

    To accomplish our goal, we have set a strategic framework for whole school improvement:

    •    develop professional collaboration teams to improve teaching and learning

    •    identify, learn and use effective research-based teaching practices

    •    create a targeted professional development plan that builds expertise in selected best practices

    •    re-align resources (people, time, talent, energy and money) to support the instructional focus

    •    engage families and the community in supporting the instructional focus

    •    create an internal accountability system growing out of student learning goals that promote measurable gains in learning for every student

  • How the school was named

    How the school was named

    In the latter part of the last century, the Canadian Government encouraged colonists to settle in the west.

    Reverend Father Morin, a colonizer from eastern Canada, brought many families to the west. Among these was the Felix LaPerle family. The family, with their five children, arrived in Edmonton in 1898. They traveled on the Canadian Pacific Railway from Cornwall, Ontario to Strathcona, Alberta, which was the end of the railroad. From there they took the ferry across the North Saskatchewan River and continued the journey west by horse and wagon to what would later be called Winterburn. Here they bought a quarter section of land from the Canadian Pacific Railway for $427.00.

    By 1906, a small store had been built to serve the community. Later a post office was opened in the store.

    In 1929, Leo, one of Felix’ sons, and Annie LaPerle bought the store and expanded it. They operated it for the next forty years.

    The store soon became a centre for the Winterburn community. People were welcome at all times both in the store and their home. During the Depression, lonely people from a nearby work camp would walk to the store to listen to the radio on Saturday or Sunday and would often stay all night.

    LaPerle’s Winterburn Store was also a destination and landmark for “the city folk” going for a Sunday drive or a long bicycle ride. The store marked the “end of the gravel”, and it was a good place to buy a cold drink.

    Although the store was demolished in 1969 to make way for the Winterburn overpass on highway 16A, it is fondly remembered by Edmontonians.

    How appropriate that LaPerle School was opened to help perpetuate the name of a pioneer family whose service to this community was exemplified by dedication, trust and true friendliness.
