M.E.LaZerte Treaty 6 Acknowledgement

The students and staff of M.E. LaZerte are honoured and grateful to be on Treaty 6 Territory. Edmonton – Amisk Waci Washahikan (Beaver Hills House) is a gathering place and traveling route for Indigenous Peoples including: Cree, Blackfoot, Nakota, Sioux, Iroquios, Dene, Ojibway, Salteaux, Inuit and homeland to the Metis Nation. The land where M.E. LaZerte is on was once an area that was full of saskatoon bushes. Nations would meet here and harvest the berries all summer.Our kinship with the land, the water and the animals provides us with the opportunity to live, work and play on this territory. Our responsibility for reconciliation is to honour this treaty for as long as the sun shines, the sweet grass grows and the river flows.

Message from Principal George Hoyt

Inspire passion. Develop character. Change lives.  

Welcome to M.E. LaZerte High School. I am privileged to get to work here and be part of such a strong community.  M.E. LaZerte is a proud community with a long history.  The history of the school has set the standards for all staff and students.  Over time, we have built success by working cooperatively with parents/guardians and the community to provide a meaningful educational experience for all students.  These relationships are the foundation to our students having all the support they need to successfully navigate high school. M.E LaZerte has one of the top high school completion rates in the city and province because of this.

M.E. LaZerte provides a safe and inclusive environment that focuses on engaged teaching and learning. Our learners are challenged to be leaders through service around their school and in the greater community.

To all community members and stakeholders, we have an open door policy at M.E. LaZerte. We work through people, not around them, with a focus on solutions and support for next steps. I will provide leadership that will continue to ensure a collaborative school environment. I will empower students and staff to focus on differentiated instruction that meets the needs of every student. I hope to see you around our M.E. LaZerte High School community.
