Welcome Fort McMurry Families
Mills Haven School would like to welcome those Fort McMurray families who have relocated into our area. Please come to the school and register your children. We are here to help.
OPEN HOUSE ON MAY 31 AT 6:30PM, please bring your children
Do you have, or know, a child starting Kindergarten in the fall of 2016? If so, registration for the 2016–2017 school year is now open. Please download the Registration Form or come to the school to pick up your Kindergarten Package.
To build skills for an increasingly global world, Mills Haven also offers a German Bilingual Program as well as a regular English Program.
To help families prepare, EIPS has compiled a wealth of information on its website (www.eips.ca/kindergarten). There you’ll find details regarding how to register, eligibility, dates to remember, how to find your designated school, programming options, what to expect, transportation, and more. Additional information regarding Mills Haven’s Kindergarten program, can be found on our Kindergarten page.
When registering your child, don’t forget to bring with you proof of residence, your child’s name, and date of birth and citizenship.
To assist in our planning for next year, we encourage families to register their new Kindergarteners, and make busing arrangements if needed, by April 30, 2016.
NOTE: To be eligible for the 2016–2017 Kindergarten program, children must be five years old on, or before, Dec. 31, 2016.
Elk Island Public Schools (EIPS) has put together the 2016–2017 Kindergarten Guide, an online toolkit to make the transition as smooth as possible. Below you will find everything you need to know about Kindergarten including registration, eligibility, important dates, Kindergarten Information Nights, designated schools, programming options, fees, Student Transportation, boundary exemptions, how to prepare, ways to be involved, and more.
PLEASE NOTE: If you are registering a child in a non-designated school for Kindergarten you must follow the boundary exemption request process, which takes place from February 1 to April 14.

Class 13 Energize Challenge Winners
For the last 10 weeks Mr. Rad’s grade one class has been hard at work keeping energized by engaging in 60 minutes of physical activity every day. As the week progressed the class was challenged to find out different ways to stay healthy and energized, at home and at school. The last challenge of the program was to enact a short story about staying energized throughout the school day. The class created a video for the short story that was selected as the winner of the challenge. As our prize we will be joined by two Edmonton Oiler alumni, Sean Brown and Jason Strudwick, and a few cheerleaders for a floor hockey game next week. Congratulations grade ones for staying energized and representing Mills Haven!
