The Aldergrove School Logo
The Aldergrove School logo combines our school's initial "A" with stylized Alder branches in a traditional crest. The design is clean and sophisticated, reflective of our school's academic focus and pride. The three Alder branches, forming a wrap-around effect to the "A", represent three areas of school focus: academics, citizenship, and comprehensive school health. Our school provides challenging individual and collaborative learning experiences that focus on maximizing student potential, within a caring and respectful environment. We promote a healthy, [active] lifestyle through a focus on "Making the Healthy Choice, the Easy Choice".
As part of our Citizenship Framework, Aldergrove participates in The Leader in Me, and its signature programme focused on the 7 Habits of Highly Effective People. The branches in the logo contain seven leaves, representing the 7 Habits. The Leader in Me helps students learn how to take initiative, plan ahead, set and track goals, prioritize their time, manage their emotions, be considerate of others, resolve conflicts, find creative solutions, and live a balanced life. The process helps students develop the skills and self-confidence they need to lead their lives and succeed in school and beyond.*
Variations in the size of the leaves represent the diversity in our school.
Division Re-entry Strategy
Read our COVID-19 Division Re-entry Strategy for information about how we’re welcoming students and staff back into schools this September.We’re preparing to welcome students and staff back into schools this September.
Welcome to Aldergrove School! Whether you are already a parent/guardian of a child attending our school, or are interested in becoming a member of our school community, we hope that the contents herein will be both informative and useful.
Aldergrove is a medium-sized elementary school that serves a vibrant, west-end community. We are situated next to Aldergrove Community League, and share the small grove of trees that border Aldergrove Park. We offer programming for Kindergarten, grades 1 to 6, as well as for children with special needs focused on social-emotional & behavioural assistance. Our programming centres on academics, citizenship, and comprehensive school health. We encourage our students to take responsibility for their learning, to engage in respectful and collaborative interactions with others, and to endeavour to serve as leaders.
Parents have an important role to play in the education of their child(ren): staying connected through SchoolZone, helping with homework, or volunteering in the school or on field trips are some ways of fulfilling that role. Therefore, it is important that a strong partnership between home and the school develop, so that both may contribute to the success of the child.
If you would like to consider becoming a part of the Aldergrove School community, please contact the school to arrange a visit and a tour to see what our school has to offer, and if Aldergrove might be “a good fit” for your child.
