Welcome to Edna Staebler Public School, home of the Storm!

We  have an absolutely amazing staff here at Edna with an active and supportive community and School Council. There will be lots of updates to provide you with throughout the year, so please check this website regularly. The entire staff is excited to be a part of this great opportunity and honored to work together with the students and the entire community to develop a safe, respectful environment to nourish the leaders of today and tomorrow.

Our school is named after Edna Staebler (1906–2006) She was a member of the Order of Canada and an award-winning journalist. Best known for her series of cookbooks. She was a regular contributor to Maclean’s, Saturday Night, The Toronto Star, Chatelaine and many other newspapers and magazines.  Edna received many awards and distinctions.


Our students and staff enjoy opportunities to share some of their activities with parents and the school community through teams, clubs and special events. Many of these are ‘memory making’ for families and as such, photographs are often taken. We ask that families exercise their discretion when taking photographs or videos at school events and consider the privacy of other students who may also be present in those pictures. We would appreciate if families not upload images of students other than their own to the Internet (e.g. YouTube or Facebook). Your co-operation is appreciated.


When we get a chance, we tweet about what is going on at school.  You can find us at https://twitter.com/ednastaeblerps
