Principal's Message

Welcome to A. Blair McPherson School! After eight years being principal at two other schools in Edmonton Public, I look forward to joining the learning community at A. Blair McPherson. I am excited to continue the excellent work of the former principal Mrs. Goudreau. This is the sixth year of operation and the strong sense of community is very evident. Students and staff at A. Blair McPherson School all follow the TRIBES trail. As part of the TRIBES program we all understand and live the four agreements which are firmly grounded in mutual respect. We embrace our multicultural diversity and enjoy celebrating what makes each of us MIGHTY!

We are an innovative, inquiring, community. A. Blair McPherson strives to have every student immersed in 21 Century skills. On a typical day in our school you would see Grade Nines working with Grade Two's while a science class is skyping with an expert in their field. Down the hall an art specialist will be working with a social studies teacher to create a project that satisfies both curriculums. Later that day award winning teachers will be meeting to discuss their classes, professional readings and new resources available for students. This is a very powerful learning community!

I am delighted to be joining this remarkable school. I invite you to browse our website and contact me should you have any questions.

Together we are "Mighty"!
