Principal's Message

Welcome to Elmdale Public School!  Elmdale Public School is an OCDSB school located in an established residential neighborhood in Ottawa. It has served families in the community since it was built in 1928. 

Elmdale has a long tradition of active parent involvement. Parents enrich the learning environment by volunteering in classrooms, on School Council committees, in fundraising events and supporting extra curricular activities. Students enjoy the many sports, music and clubs that are offered throughout the school year. We are proud of our students' academic achievements and continue to strive to improve the quality of our instruction through our school improvement initiatives.

Since September 2014, our school is an Early French Immersion Centre for students in Kindergarten through Grade 6. For the school year 2021-22, our enrollment is approximately 530 students. The student population is served by a dedicated and professional staff of teachers, early childhood educators, educational assistants and support staff. This team demonstrates daily commitment to creating an inspiring educational experience for our students.

My Work as Principal

I work closely with our vice-principal, Karin Kincaid and all staff to serve our students and their families. We are flexible and work hard to set our students up for success. We strive to keep the line of communication open with families. In an effort to reduce our consumption of paper and the loss of documents, I send regular emails to Elmdale families. This replaces traditional newsletters. We keep an online calendar of school activities on our website for your easy reference. If you need to communicate with us, you can telephone us at 613-728-4653. You can also email me directly at [email protected].

Looking forward to our continued work together.
