"Let us grow together into Christ"
The School Office will reopen on Monday, August 31, 2015 at 9 am.
May we make our homes places of relaxation,
joy, love, peace and safety.
May we be generous and considerate,
not thinking only about ourselves,
but helping others enjoy the blessings of the summertime.
Lord God, Creator of all things,
guide our steps and strengthen our hearts
during these months of summer and vacation days.
Grant us refreshment of mind and body.
May we constantly strive to make a meaningful difference
in the lives of our loved ones and in the world around us
as we enjoy the warm days of summertime.
We ask this through Christ our Lord.
| MWI Kindergarten Program hosted at AJM School 2015-2016
Unfortunately, we will not be able to host a Kindergarten Open House this June, as we are still in the planning stages for next year. Our school will be undergoing classroom moves due to the delivery of portables.
You should be receiving or have already received a Kindergarten welcome letter for September 2015 as we are so excited for you to be joining our AJM family.
If you are interested in coming for a school tour, please contact the school administration at the e-mail addresses below and enter Request a School Tour - Kindergarten in the subject line:
Fernando Runco (Principal)
Karoline Irlbacher Jurijew (Elementary Assistant Principal)
Dean Rootsaert (Junior High Assistant Principal)
Our most sincere apologies for not being able to host an Open House.
Transportation for MWI Kindergarten Students
Transportation for students in all MWI Kindergarten programs is available at no cost through Transportation Services. If you have not already done so, please click on the link "Yellow Bus Application and Information" on the bottom right of our homepage. Please print, complete, and return this application prior to June 19, 2015 to ensure bus service at the start of the school year. Delaying this process will result in a delay in service and alternate arrangements for your child will be needed.
Please note: bus drivers will return a student to the school if there is no designated adult available to greet them at stops during scheduled drop-off times.
Kindergarten Staggered Entry - 2015-2016
Parents of Kindergarten students in the AJM program, please ensure you have called the office at 780-471-4218 to book your date and time for your child's entry date.
Parents of Kindergarten students in the MWI Program (Regular and French Immersion) hosted at AJM School, teachers will be doing their home visits (dates to be determined), at which time staggered entry dates and times will be scheduled. At that time, MWI teachers will explain their program and advise of supplies needed for the year.
Is your family going on vacation during the school year? Please phone the school office to let us know when and for how long. This helps us maintain accurate attendance records. Junior High students are reminded to complete their vacation form before leaving on holidays.

Welcome to Archbishop Joseph MacNeil Catholic School
AJM is a Catholic elementary/junior high school southwest Edmonton, Alberta. Our school opened in September, 2003 and has experienced tremendous growth since then. Currently, we have six hundred students in kindergarten to grade eight.
Our motto, “Let us grow together into Christ” reflects the mood and tone of the students, parents, and the staff of our school. AJM students continue to excel in academics, athletics, the arts, and their spiritual growth.
We hope that our website will inform you and help you to learn more about our school community.
Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions.
