Planning for the 2022-2023 school year!

We are presently working on our School Budget and Staffing for the 2022 - 2023 School Year. In order to complete this task and to set programs for the upcoming year, we need to know our projected school enrolment.


Please contact Tess in the office (780-922-4522) if your family is moving and won't be attending Holy Redeemer (or ABJ) in the fall as we are planning for the 2022-2023 school year. Please do NOT submit a new registration form if you are returning next year.

Grade 3 students moving to Grade 4

Students entering grade 4 in the fall will need to bring a device to school as another tool for learning. EICS recommends Chromebooks as the ideal device due to price, battery life, fast startup, and usability.

Want to be a Parent Volunteer?

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 for you. Thank you for considering volunteering at our school...we NEED and welcome you!

Indigenous Moon Calendar

This month, it is egg hatching moon, (paskawihowipisim) in the Cree calendar. At this time of year, we are all encouraged to go outside and appreciate the creation of new spring life. Do you hear or see the baby birds. Can you appreciate the beauty in each of God's creations? Go for a walk to your special place, notice and feel your surroundings and try to listen to the birds singing their songs.

Library Corner

It is hard to believe that the year is winding down already. It has been a great year in the library, and we were able to add so many new cool books to our collection. June 8th and June 10th will be the last library classes to check out books. After that, we will just be returning all over due material and getting ready for the next school year. If any over due books are not returned by June 17th , payment sheets will go home.


Thanks everyone and if you have any questions please reach out

  1. A Reminder about spring registration for First Reconciliation & First Holy Communion INCLUDING a special invitation for family whose children age 7-10 are not yet Baptized. We have special preparation available for those families so the little ones can be welcomed in Baptism during the Easter season then go on to celebrate the other sacraments with their classmates. Please share widely in your classrooms! A direct invitation from the grade 2-4 teachers would be extremely helpful.
  2. Invitations for two different adult Faith Formation opportunities being offered in April by the parish GiFT Committee (Growing in Faith Together.) Please share with all EICS staff and parents. You do not need to be an OLPH parishioner to participate.
