WELCOME to Mattie McCullough Elementary School!
As you know, several Red Deer Public elementary schools will be undergoing attendance boundary changes starting in the 2017/18 school year.
At Mattie McCullough we are shaping tomorrow’s future today. We are particularly proud of our warm, welcoming, respectful environment and our high quality learning opportunities. Our school is located in the Lancaster community. Currently we have 426 students attending our schools from Lancaster and Deer Park South. Our staff is committed to meeting the needs of individual students and we are also very pleased to have an engaged parent community as valued partners in our school.
As we prepare for these changes, we want to keep you informed throughout the process. Information will be shared with you regularly and you can also check out “Schools in Transition” on both our school and the district website.
We are also currently preparing welcoming plans to get you familiar and comfortable with your new school. This will include an open house and meet the teacher night this spring. We also welcome you to meet with us if there are any particular issues or concerns we can work on together.
We recognize that these changes will affect a number of families and we are committed to making the transition as smooth as possible. While these are significant changes, we look forward to the opportunities they provide to enrich student learning and success. To assist with this, we have included a number of strategies that you might want to use in preparing your child for the changes.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me. I, along with the staff at Mattie McCullough Elementary School, look forward to having you a part of our school community.
Principal, Mattie McCullough Elementary School
