Naming the new high school - your feedback is valuable!

Good morning Camrose school community,

This is an exciting time for Camrose as we start planning the 2025 opening of our new Catholic high school in the Valleyview community. The selection of a school name is a significant step for establishing a new school community. At this time, we want to engage our greater school community to help select a name for our new school.

The name of a school symbolizes the beginning of a new and united community. The culture and ethos of the school community will evolve from the name of the Catholic school. The intention of the name is to support the mission of the Catholic school to be consistent with the mission of the Catholic Church and to establish and deepen the relationship of everyone in the school with the person of Jesus Christ as members of his Body, and the Church.

Policy 20 must be utilized when choosing a name for school facilities. To view the complete policy: Naming of Educational Facilities

Guiding principles for naming an EICS educational facility:

  1. First consideration is given to an aspect of the mystery of Jesus Christ (e.g. Christ the King, Good Shepherd, Holy Trinity, Holy Name of Jesus)

  2. Second consideration, in accordance to Our Lady, who may be named under one of her many titles (e.g. Our Lady of Grace) or in relation to her life (e.g. Nativity of Our Lady, Assumption of Mary)

  3. Third consideration, the name of a canonized saint may be considered, since canonization is a declaration to the universal Church that the one canonized is worthy of imitation.

  4. Fourth consideration, the name of a former Pope could be considered, or the name associated with heavenly beings such as angels.

  5. Fifth consideration, the name of a person associated with the founding of Catholic education in Alberta may also be considered, provided there has arisen around them a reputation for sanctity and dedication to Christ and His Church.

Your feedback is valuable! Please use the link provided to suggest a potential name for the new Catholic high school in Camrose. The survey will be open until the end of day September 20th.

The Elk Island Catholic Schools Board of Trustees will select the name of the school based on the suggestions provided. The name will then be revealed to the community on October 21st, at St. Francis Xavier Catholic Church at the GrACE Community Engagement Evening.

Here is the link to the Thought Exchange survey:

The office hours are: 8:00 - 3:30 during scheduled school days.

If calling during lunch time (12:00 - 12:30) please leave a message and Ms. Miller will return your call as soon as she can.

Remember to phone and book an appointment if you need to come into the school @ 780-672-2177.

Parent Volunteers

Parents wanting to volunteer at the school or for field trips need to have a Criminal Record Check, Child Intervention Check and sign a Volunteer Confidentiality Undertaking form.

Request forms for these can be picked up at the school office. If you are unsure if you have these documents already completed you can call the office and we can check. These checks can take a while to process so if you are wanting to volunteer please get these done ASAP.

End of day phone messages to students

If you have a message to pass onto your child for end of day arrangements please call the school office no later than 2:45 pm due to the end of day staggered dismissal times.

It is very difficult to find a child once they have left the classroom at the end of the school day.

Parent/visitor access

All visitors to the school must sign in at the office.

Student absences

Please report student absences to the office or through school messanger.

terry fox run

Dear Parents/Guardians,

This year St. Patrick Catholic School will again be participating in a Terry Fox School Walk to raise awareness and funds in support of the Terry Fox Foundation. This year’s event will take place on Tuesday, September 27th.

We are proud to work with the Foundation towards Terry’s vision of ‘a world without cancer’. We also look forward to encouraging our students to ‘Be like Terry’ by fostering his values of determination, courage, perseverance and compassion.

Setting up a personal fundraising page or contributing to the St. Patrick Catholic School Fundraising page is a simple online process. Please follow the link provided to Sponsor our School or set up your own page.

All online donations of $20.00 or more are automatically receipted, cutting down on the Foundation’s administrative costs and leaving more funds for life-saving cancer research.

Thank you for your support and consideration,

Alexis Pfeffer
