Queensdale Elementary School

Queensdale School offers a unique educational environment where both Regular Hearing Students and Deaf/Hard of Hearing Students are exposed to quality daily learning. Our enrollment of 202 students is comprised of ten regular Junior Kindergarten to Grade 6 classes and two Deaf/Hard of Hearing Classes. Queensdale School offers an Umbrella Before and After School Child Care Program.

The Deaf/Hard of Hearing program has a more than 30-year tradition at Queensdale School. Students with a specified hearing loss are eligible to enter our half-day Preschool at two years of age. We also offer Deaf/Hard of Hearing Programs at the Junior and Senior Kindergarten level and Primary (Grades 1,2 and 3 levels). Trained specialist teachers of the Deaf teach these classes. Queensdale Deaf/Hard of Hearing Program offers a wide range of communication options to address the individual needs of students with a hearing loss. Parent input is valued in determining communication methods.

Family preference combined with the expertise of our specialized teachers and based on student need, allow us to individualize program delivery. Communication options, as deemed necessary, include oral speech, auditory verbal strategies, signed English as augmentative support and picture exchange methods. Students receive both individualized and integrated programming.

Save China's red panda
Timothy MacDonell, Queensdale School, Grade 5 – Mr. Parson’s Class



Did you know the red panda is endangered? The color of red panda is what people remember the most. The red panda lives in China. There are adaptations. We should help save the red panda.

The red panda has one of the most amazing appearances. It looks like a raccoon with a red and white striped tail. It has black eyebrows and a white and black nose like a giant panda.

The red panda lives in China with the giant panda. They eat a diet of bamboo and small animals like rats and mice. The red panda likes to live in the rainforest. The trees and other plants are what give the red panda a home. This is why they live in the rainforest.

Predator or Prey
The red panda is predator and prey. Humans hunt red panda for there fur coat. The red panda is not eaten, it is hunted for their bones to make tools. The red panda hunts small animals making them the predator for other animals. This is why it is predator and prey.

The red panda has fascinating adaptations. The red fur makes it hard to see in fall. They are able to hide from predators in the trees. The long sharp claws make it protect itself from other animals. The bamboo is hard to get through and they cut it down with their long claws. Without these adaptations the red panda would be extinct like the dodos bird.

The red panda needs help. They are hunted for their fur because they have peculiar markings all over its fur. The red panda is often hunted or caught and sold as pets. This is why we need to help the red pandas.
The red panda is so fascinating and also endangered species. Save the red panda! Once they are gone we can never get them back. If this happens a circle of life will never be the same.
