Welcome to Hillview School!  At Hillview school we have a great School Council and the Woodvale Community League who generously support our reading incentive program for the students in our school!  Reading is important to us and we recognize that it helps all of our students become successful and move forward in their learning and life.

At Hillview School in 2017 - 18 we are proud to offer a wide range of field trips, teachers who provide effective instruction  which focuses on literacy, numeracy and integrated technology.  We have a variety of literacy interventions in place to support students in their reading skills.  We are an Apple school and align our work within the learnings of the Leader in Me Program.

Hillview school is a hub school for the Pre-kindergarten program run by Edmonton Public Schools.  We currently have 10 classrooms in Hillview school but also 10 classrooms in our satellite schools; Bisset, Sakaw, Tipaskin and Ekota. 

We are a small school with a huge heart.  We believe in working with our community partners to make great things happen for the community of Hillview!



Principal's Message

Welcome to a new year at Hillview School.  I hope this website provides you with all the necessary information you will need about our school, its programming, policies, and events.  A Hillview School has a new logo introduced late last year.  The hills represent a book as we have a significant focus on reading; the apple tree represents that we are an APPLE School involved in improving the health and wellness of our Hillview community of learners; and the seven apples on the tree represent each of the Leader in Me habits. 

Please note that our elementary handbook and Pre-Kindergarden handbooks provide specific information about our belief system, learning policy, instructional focus, and behavior policies.  We will continue to build on our Leader in Me program to provide students and staff with a safe, friendly and welcoming atmosphere to promote optimum learning and achievement.  Each month a classroom will oversee a Leader in Me habit.  We will build on these habits throughout the year.  We will also continue to build on the Assessment for Learning practices and the technology used at Hillview to help improve student engagement.  If you have any questions, concerns, or suggestions, please do not hesitate to call me at any time.  Communication between home and school is very important to me and I value your input and feedback.    Please remember to check your Schoolzone account on a regular basis. 

I look forward to meeting all of you throughout the year.  Come and visit our school often; come to see your children working, speak with the staff, and contribute to the learning process at our school.  Your support is always welcome and demonstrates to your child the importance you place on their education.  Our children are our future; let’s do all we can to assist them in becoming productive, happy and healthy citizens for a lifetime! 

Mrs. Debbie Petkau
