Welcome! – Bienvenue!
Welcome to Margaret Manson Elementary School's website. It provides information on numerous aspects of our school.
Margaret Manson Elementary School is located in the West end of Montreal, in the West Island City of Kirkland, just off the chemin Ste. Marie, Exit 49 of the Trans Canada Highway 40.
We are an Early Immersion School serving zones 18, 19, 20 and 57 of the Lester B. Pearson School Board. Zones 18, 19 20 include the Timberlea area, Kirkland north of the Trans Canada Highway and west of Houde Street, and a section of Pierrefonds West, north of Antoine Faucon. Zone 57 is an off island zone, just across the Île aux Tourtes bridge and commonly referred to as Vaudreuil-sur-le-Lac. Please note that there is no school bus service currently provided to and from zone 57.
We provide Daycare services before and after school and full cafeteria service at lunch time.
Parents have many opportunities to be involved in our school. We have an active Governing Board and a wonderful Home & School Association that works hard to plan special events for the school and raise funds for a wide range of materials and equipment for the students. Parents also volunteer in the library, on field trips, and for special programs within the school. We invite you to continue visiting our website for further details on our school.
