Badminton Update

Junior Badminton TeamsOver the past two months, the Jr. Boys and Jr. Girls badminton teams met twice a week to work on skills and learn the official rules of the game. The skills they worked on were racket skills, serving, smash, drop shots and doubles and singles play. As a school we were invited to take part in a tournament that took place on Apr. 25, 2017. The tournament was generously hosted by Western High School. Our Jr. Boys doubles team came in third overall and the girls doubles teams, mixed doubles team and [...]

On Apr. 18, 2017 all Grade 7 students travelled to Drumheller to visit the Royal Tyrrell Museum of Palaeontology. Students got to create a fossil casting, explore the exhibits of the museum, and follow the interpretive trail through the badlands to learn about how fossils are created and to discover how Scientists can piece together evidence of what Alberta was like 75 million years ago.Students had a great time at the museum and riding the coach buses there and back.

Principal's Message

June at West Ridge

​Hello Parents,
It is hard to believe we are in our final weeks of the school year! It seems not so long ago that we were separated among three different school locations and looking forward to moving in. As I look back on the school year I am proud of the traditions, expectations and culture we have established. (Well, having three different floods is a tradition I would like to avoid in the future…).
Our final few weeks will of course continue to be full of activities for our students. We will have our first ever dance after school this Thursday (8th) as well as an assembly on Thursday the 15th at 2:15 PM featuring our band and music program (parents are invited to attend). There will be field trips to Telus Spark (grade 8) and ATCO Kitchen (grade 5), a school patrol appreciation pizza lunch on the 20th and finally a carnival day and final assembly on the 29th. Our final day of school is Thursday, June 29th. Report cards will be given out on this day. Students leaving school early will need to pick up their report card in the fall or, as an alternative, you can drop off a stamped, self-addressed envelope to have your report card mailed out to you. June 30th will be mark appeals day. If you find any problems with your report card that you need to discuss with a teacher you can do see between 9 and 12 on this day.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank all parents for their support during this school year. It has been an exciting and challenging year full of change and new opportunities. We thank you for all of your support as we made the transition to our new home!
The first school day for the 2017 – 18 school year will be Tuesday, September 5th. If you know that your holiday travels may have you arriving back to school after that date please let us know. The office will be open on Tuesday, August 29th. Parents will receive information about opening days, student homeroom placements, etc. during the last week of August. Have a great summer!
Ryan O’Shaughnessy
