Welcome Week Extravaganza

What a fantastic full week back at school. The school year has started with a bang as our students participated in a variety of Welcome Week events hosted by the Student Council. Kids fished for donuts, enjoyed ice cream sundaes, danced around chairs, and overall had an excellent time together. A huge shoutout to our Student and Staff leaders that took the time to put on these amazing lunch hour events.

DEMOGRAPHIC CONFIRMATION and Yearly Consent FORMS

The “EICS Demographic Confirmation Form” for the 2022-2023 school year, is now available for you to complete and submit, for each of your children attending an Elk Island Catholic School. The form is found online in your PowerSchool Parent Portal and you may have received an email regarding updating this info.


This form is a mandatory document and is required to be updated for every student each year, as it could greatly impact you with respect to the Canada Revenue Agency information and Immigration when they request validation of your information.


Please take a few minutes to complete your child's Demographic Confirmation Forms, Medical Forms and all Yearly consents (FOIPP, tech use, field trips) on PowerSchool. Having the most up-to-date information about our students ensures that we receive all available funding to support your child's learning - and that we have current information to reach you during the day if necessary.


Please contact our school secretary, Margaret Michaelchuk at 780-632-3934, if you have any questions or require assistance.

Athletic Club Corn Maze Set-Up

Thank you to the over 40 students that volunteered to help set up the Vegreville Corn Maze. It was a fun time moving hay and setting up displays. Below check out some snapshots from the afternoon.

St. Mary's to Host 2022 1A Boys Volleyball Provincials in Vegreville

At the beginning of summer, STMY was notified of their successful bid to host the 1A Boys Provincial Championships this November 24-26th. This being said there are a lot of preparations underway and we know that our STMY family will help step up to make this amazing event a HUGE success.


Our main teacher committee met to go over the needs to make this tournament in November a success and we identified a few areas that we are hoping parents can join us:

- Hospitality

- Gate/Concession

- Finding local sponsors

- Banquet/Host Decorations

- the general spreading of the word about the event etc.


For any parents of our student-athletes that would like to be involved, please contact Mr. Murphy at darby.murphy@eics.ab.ca
