Chalmers Street Public School is a wonderful school filled with an abundance of energy. We provide a safe and caring environment in which the academic, social, emotional and physical needs of our children will be met. We encourage a love of learning and a pursuit of knowledge so that each individual will reach his or her full potential as a morally responsible contributing member of society.
Our focus is that all children can learn and that is witnessed on a daily basis in every classroom. We strive as a school to continually seek improvement from our students and staff alike. Character Education is also something we place a great emphasis on. We teach and live PAWS: Positive, Attitude, Welcoming and Smart Choices.
Approximately 450 junior kindergarten to grade 6 students are enrolled at Chalmers. Our graduating grade 6 students move on to attend Moffat Creek Public School.
The staff at Chalmers Street Public School is dedicated to educational excellence. Our staff consists of 19 classroom teachers, an administration team, an office manager, library clerk and 2 custodians that look after our building. Special Education, Early Literacy, core French, Physical Education teacher, CYW, EA and DECE are also available on-site.
Parents and Community
Another fabulous aspect of our community is our parents. Our Parent Nights, track and field day are well attended and supportive to our students as is our annual school picnic in late June. Families gather on our lawn for enjoyment and a feeling of community which makes for a wonderful evening.
Chalmers Street P.S. School Council meets each month. We have a dedicated group of parents who take a keen interest in working in a collaborative manner with school staff. We invite and encourage all parents to attend our informal meetings. School Council members are involved in many excellent programs throughout the year such as daily milk, fundraising initiatives, grade 6 Celebration and Nutrition for Learning.
The development of our young people is a shared responsibility involving all members of our school community. Mutual support, teamwork and communication between the home and school are fundamental in developing students that are self-disciplined and have the social skills necessary to reach their full potential.
