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 neighbouring and Northern First Nation communities.
We instil (in all of our students) an appreciation for cultural diversity and engage our students to build respect, understanding and show empathy to all.
RLMPS students and staff follow the Seven Grandfather teachings of Love, Respect, Courage, Honesty, Wisdom, Humility and Truth. Each teaching honours the basic virtues intrinsic to a fulfilling and healthy life. We follow these teachings in order to create greater, peaceful harmony within our school. We strive to be a respectful, caring and helpful school community.
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 that they are able to take essential 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!
Our Awesome Programs!
Indigenous Second Language
French as a Second Language
RLMPS is so excited that we were certified as an eco-school last fall. Check out our Facebook page for a video that highlights our achievements last year and this fall. Planting, harvesting, outdoor activities, respecting Mother Earth, recycling, composting and reusing; these are just some of the principles RLMPS stands by. Due to Covid-19, we cannot have a face to face club of students from mixed grades. However, we are trying very hard to work in our own classrooms and still keep our eco-ideas current and applicable. Some of our classrooms have dedicated their learning to projects for energy conservation and the amount of waste we produce on a regular basis. They will be conducting classroom audits and learning how to decrease our energy usage and waste. Stay tuned for the results in a newsletter to follow. Spring is coming soon and we can’t wait to be back outdoors planting and enjoying our beautiful outdoor classroom.
Our students have been actively involved in our Outdoor spaces, exploring and learning about our natural Habitat.
Our students plant vegetables every spring in our School Garden, and then enjoy harvesting and eating all the delicious vegetables in the fall!
