Welcome to Athlone Elementary School!

Athlone is located in the Athlone Community and includes the Dunvegan Community west of the school. Our school is a working partnership between students, staff, parents, and the community. We are a student-centered school who are committed to strong educational programs delivered in a supportive, nurturing, and safe environment. Our school-wide focus on literacy in all subject areas provides a strong foundation for students which allows them to achieve their own optimal levels across the curriculum.

We offer four educational programs at Athlone: Full Day Kindergarten, Regular Grades 1-6, Interactions, and Connections.


Principal's Message

On behalf of the staff at Athlone School, it is my pleasure to extend a warm welcome to all students and their families. 

I am excited for the 2023-2024 school year and look forward to working and learning together.

 At Athlone school, we focus on “Learners as leaders”, and strive to build leaders, one child at a time.  Our students work together to build self-confidence while developing accountability, effective communication, leadership, and problem-solving skills. 

We work daily to uphold Edmonton Public Schools Vision: “Enhancing pathways for student success.”  

In this regard we focus on literacy and numeracy skills; while meeting each and every student where they are at. School staff provide engaging quality learning opportunities supported by strong teaching practices.   

 Family engagement in their child’s learning is encouraged and we look forward to working with families to enhance their child's elementary school experience.  

The A-team works alongside parents and its many community partners towards fostering success for all.  Together is better! 

Yours in partnership,


Janette Pethick, Principal
