West Ridge Survey Feedback Results

We recently spent some time together as a staff analyzing results from student, parent and teacher sur-veys. Thank you to all who took the time to provide feedback in order to ensure West Ridge continues to be an amazing place to learn and grow. There was much to celebrate about our school community in this data including the incredible people, the multitude of opportunities offered to West Ridge students, the new sport court currently under [...]

We Hope Your Child Has Had a Great School Year

Hello Parents,
This is our final newsletter for the 2018-2019 school year. We hope your child has had a great school year and we thank you for being active participants in your child’s education.
This month we will be having our Grade 9 Farewell on June 13 and taking a moment to celebrate our second graduating class. We also have our Provincial Achievement Tests and many field trips as we move towards the final day of classes. Please note that our final day of school is Wednesday, June 26 (one day earlier than West Springs School). This is a full school day where we will celebrate together with a hot dog lunch, yearbooks, and an end of year assembly.
We continue to grow as a school and at the time of writing we had 843 students registered for next school year. Our parent survey urged for smaller class sizes and we have strived to deliver. We have been able to create extra classes for grade 6, 7, and 8 next year which, with current registrations, have all classes from Grade 5-8 between 25 and 28 students. Our school budget has been cut and so this has meant an inability to create another Grade 9 class (these will have 31-32 students). This has also meant limited extra resources such as education assistants and ELL support time.
We have been able to hire two more teachers for next school year. We welcome Joel Pendergast (Math/Science 6/7) from Thomas B. Riley School and Rachel Clowes (Humanities 6/7) from Chief Justice Mulvane School. There are a few more staffing decisions to be finalized and these will be shared with an end of year update once complete.
Our first day of school for the 2019–2020 school year will be Tuesday, September 3rd. Please note that on this day only new Grade 5’s will attend school at 8:30am. Grade 6-9 students will join us at 12:40 for the afternoon. This gives us a chance to work with our new grade 5 students and help them transition successfully.
Ryan G O'Shaughnessy Principal, West Ridge School
