    Clubs & Activities

    At École J.A. Fife School we provide a number of extra curricular activities to enhance the learning experience of our students.


    As a way to encourage an active and healthy lifestyle, team activities are organized by teachers and take place during noon hours and recesses throughout the school year. All students are encouraged to participate and an emphasis is placed on cooperatation and sporstmanship. All that is required from students is a positive attitude and a strong team spirit.

    Student Council and Student Leadership Council

    Under the guidance of volunteer teachers, students are given the opportunity to assume leadership roles through organizing and running special school wide events.  Students in these group also contribute to our society by organizing numerous fundraising ventures.  These students become great ambassadors for École J.A. Fife School.

    AMA Safety Patrols

    Since 1937, generations of School Safety patrollers have kept Albertans safe – there’s even a chance that you used to be one yourself. Funded and coordinated by the Alberta Motor Association, our School Safety Patrol program has since grown to include 500 schools.

    At École J.A. Fife School, the patrollers are trained Grade 6 students who ensure our younger students and parents cross the street safely.

    Running Club

    The goal of the École J.A. Fife School running club is to provide opportunities for Grade 4-6 students to develop active, healthy lifestyles and practice proper running techniques. Students may have the opportunity to participate in out of school events such as the Running Room Indoor Games.

    Choir and Handbells

    The participants of Choir and Handbells meet and practice at designated noon hours to practice and enjoy singing and playing while learning proper musical techniques. Choir and Handbell participants have the opportunity to sing at school concerts/assemblies, community senior centres, and other out of school locations.

Principal's Message

Dear Parents/guardians and students,

Welcome to the 2020-2021 school year!  I am excited to be joining the J.A. Fife learning team as principal.  Although these past few months have been filled with uncertainty and nothing like anyone would ever have imagined, I am looking forward to the opportunity to work with students, families and staff this year.  I know this is going to be a great year, and I thank you for giving Edmonton Public Schools and École J.A. Fife School the opportunity to teach and learn with your child(ren).  
The staff team is dedicated to creating a safe and caring learning environment that fosters growth and success for each of our students.  We look forward to working with your child to ensure they are reaching their potential as learners and leaders.  Communication between home and school is important and we ask that you regularly check SchoolZone and the information posted there.  As we work on making connections and building relationships, our staff are always open to engaging in conversation with the families and guardians of our students.  Please feel free to contact us when the need arises.
