Our Great Programs!

+ OPHEA Healthy Schools

This program recognizes and celebrates school communities for promoting and enhancing the health and well-being of students, school staff, and the broader community through a variety of activities and initiatives. We are very proud to be the first school board in Ontario to register all of our schools for OPHEA’s Healthy Schools Certification.

+ Summer Learning Program

With a focus on outdoor learning in a fun and active environment, our Summer Learning Program continues to be popular with families. Students in the program will build on their existing literacy and numeracy skills, as well as other important learning skills, while playing fun games and participating in different activities during the three week program. The programs are free to families (healthy snacks and lunches are provided each day) and run by qualified teachers. The Summer Learning Programs offer a great opportunity for students to maintain, or even improve, their literacy and numeracy achievement, and the best part is that the children are having so much fun, they often don’t even realize they are learning!

+ Hockey Canada Skills Academy

Our Hockey Canada Skills Academies are designed to challenge and inspire all students who participate. They are a complete program that includes a strong focus on academics, as well as on-ice skills, off-ice strength and conditioning, mental training, and personal and team development. Hockey Canada Skills Academies run during the school day and funding is available to help families acquire the necessary equipment.

This is a not-for-profit program designed to detect, diagnose and treat children with vision problems when they begin Junior Kindergarten (Year 1), so that every child can see and learn to the best of his/her ability. Local Doctors of Optometry provide OHIP-insured eye exams, and if prescribed, the child receives a free pair of eyeglasses donated by the program’s eyewear partners.

Red Lake-Madsen is a Kindergarten to Grade 8 school located in the heart of Red Lake. We serve the communities of Red Lake, Madsen and Starratt-Olsen, as well as neighboring and Northern First Nation communities.

We strive to provide a safe, encouraging and respectful learning environment for our students. Our goal is to establish a culture of teaching and learning to support the “whole” student and to better support all students to independently demonstrate higher order and critical thinking.  We foster a culture of high expectations for our students as we believe that each and every one of them can succeed.

Our Kindergarten program is strength based and opens the door for our students to guide their own learning. Our Kindergarten staff ensure our students feel safe and nurtured so they feel safe to take risks in their own learning. We take a family approach to education and involve our Kindergarten students in school events and activities.

Above all, we love our students.  We are grateful for our parents, our community and our Board who supports us as we do our important work with students.

We hope you’ll stop in for a visit!
