Welcome to Albert McMahon Elementary School

Albert McMahon is a busy and vibrant learning environment, offering a well-rounded program of academics, fine arts and athletics to a population of 380 students from Kindergarten to Grade 6. We are situated in a growing neighbourhood and we welcome new students regularly. Visitors to our school routinely comment on our excellently behaved and courteous students. We take pride in our inclusive school culture, and we have programs in place to meet the needs of all students. Albert McMahon's behaviour support program is entitled the S.H.A.R.P. Program, an acronym for Safe, Helpful, Accountable and Respectful and Positive. Our SWAT (Students with an Aptitude for Teaching) grade 5 and 6 leaders can be found with their little reading buddies each day for fifteen minutes of reading tutor time. The Peer Counselling program involves training senior students in communication and leadership skills. The Peer Counsellors act as friends, helpers and resource people to students in the school. In addition, students who help others benefit by developing a greater sense of responsibility, self-confidence, and an understanding of others. Extra-curricular sports are popular at McMahon, with cross country running, basketball, volleyball, and track and field teams. We also have a busy schedule of intramural floor hockey for junior and senior students.

Please take advantage of this new service. Decisions about school schedules and bus route changes are generally made before 6:30 a.m. This allows for the most current weather information to factor into the decision.
