    If your child is new to Edmonton Public Schools, you can register for school online. Visit the Division website to learn how to register for school.



    You will need to pre-enrol on SchoolZone to tell us the school you’d like your child to attend next year. Find important dates and deadlines and learn more about pre-enrolment, which opens between March and April each year.

    If you have any registration questions, contact the school office at 780-463-1854.

  • APPLE Schools can help students learn, establish, and maintain patterns of nutrition and physical activity that help keep their bodies healthy. Well-planned and effectively implemented school wellness programs can help students to achieve greater mental and physical health. At Sakaw School, we are committed to promoting a healthy school environment by supporting and emphasizing student mental wellness, good nutrition, and regular physical activity.

    The consumption of gum, candy, soft drinks and "junk food" is not encouraged in the school or on the playground. We encourage parents to support our efforts and not include such foods in students’ lunches.‌

Principal's Message

Administrative team members: Elizabeth Fraser and Tim Paetkau


It is my sincere honour and privilege to be the Principal and with the Sakaw School students, families, and community.  We are a welcoming, inspiring, and supportive learning staff team and we continue to support students and families to ensure a successful and safe learning environment for all. 

As part of our work towards reconciliation we ask that you join us to learn to pronounce our school name correctly:  Sakâw or ᓴᑳᐤ is pronounced : “sah-gow” according to Plains Cree phonetics and spelling.  The translation means bushes, a forest or a wooded area.  

At Sakaw: Everyone Belongs and Everyone Grows.  We see examples of this every day and look forward to celebrating our belonging and growth over the whole school year. 

I encourage you to reach out to the school office team with any questions you may have.  

Yours in partnership, 

Mrs. Elizabeth Fraser
