Non-resident students can enrol 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.


    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.

    Thank you for your interest in Meadowlark School.  Kindergarten is an exciting time for families.  Kindergarten registration for the 2022-2023 school year begins on February 1st and ends on April 14th.  The registration process will be online this year through Edmonton Public Schools.  You may only register your child at one school within one school district. 

    For Mandarin Kindergarten registration we will be following the Division's protocol which is below:

    Elementary Chinese Bilingual**

    1. Resident students who live in the attendance area, and who are currently in the alternative program in a Division school.
    2. Resident students who live in the attendance area.
    3. Resident students who live in the program enrolment boundary, where applicable.
    4. Siblings of students currently in the alternative program at the school and who will be returning the following year.
    5. Other resident students.
    6. Non-resident students currently enrolled in the same alternative program elsewhere in the Division.
    7. Other non-resident students.

     Things to Consider:

    1. Should your child be accepted but you live outside of our transportation area, transportation will be parent responsibility.
    2. Should Meadowlark School exceed the number of applicants, a random draw selection would take place. Parents will be contacted to advise them of their next steps.
    3. If your child is unsuccessful, then you are welcome to contact the other Mandarin programs
    4. If space is not available, then your designated school’s mainstream program must accept your child.

Principal's Message

Welcome to Meadowlark School!  We offer regular English programming and a Chinese Bilingual program from Kindergarten to Grade 6. Our staff are committed to helping students discover their passions, explore their interests and uncover their strengths.  We will challenge students to be the best that they can be; to accept their own and others' strengths and weaknesses; to celebrate successes, and to see mistakes not as failure, but as an essential part of the learning process. They will be asked to be accountable for their conduct and the development of positive relationships with others; and to assume their rightful responsibilities as learners.  At Meadowlark, we hold high expectations for students in both areas of academics and behavior.

Our staff supports all learners through an educational strengths-based approach where we collaborate, refine teaching practices and build engaging learning environments. Meadowlark staff is committed to continuous improvement and we are dedicated to a collaborative culture.  Each day we work together to achieve the collective goal of academic success for all of our students!   With the dedicated efforts of an exemplary staff, and supportive parents, we can support our students through our shared expectations of academic, social and emotional success. 

I am excited and proud to be the Principal of Meadowlark School and welcome the opportunity to be a part of your child's educational journey.  I believe it takes a community to raise a child and together we succeed! 

Working together,

Mrs. Pocklington
