Happy Chinese New Year! Just like in previous years, we will be having a grand celebration concert at the Jubilee auditorium to welcome in the year of the dog! This year’s concert will take place on Tuesday, February 13 at 7:00pm. Concert tickets can be purchased online at You will need to use your child’s student ID number to purchase tickets, as this event is only open to Highwood School families and friends. The theme to this year’s celebration is Footprints of our Ancestors: A blended celebration of Chinese New Year and Indigenous Ways of knowing, being, and doing. Our special guest will be Elder Randy Bottle from Kainai Nation. Please invite all of your family and friends to celebrate with us. It will be an evening to remember!

February is an important month in terms of preparing for the next school year. New students wanting to attend Highwood School for Kindergarten or Grade One starting in September 2018 must submit a registration form by February 13th. Because the number of registrations exceeds the number of spots available, we will be doing a lottery draw on Wednesday, February 14th to determine which new students will be at Highwood in September. If your student already attends Highwood School this school year, they will automatically be rolled over to the next grade and do not need to reregister. If your child is in grade 4 and plan on staying with the Mandarin program, they will automatically be rolled over to grade 5 at Colonel Irvine School. Please ensure your family and friends know of the February 13th deadline, as we would hate for anyone to be disappointed because they missed the lottery draw deadline.

Wishing you and your family health and happiness in the year of the dog.

Principal, Highwood School​
