Principal's Message

Principal’s Message – October 4, 2019

​Dear Queen Elizabeth High School families.
September has flown by and we are already into snowy mornings. Over the past month I have gotten to know so many students and numerous families in our QEHS community. I am learning more about what makes this school such a unique and wonderful place for students. I see staff working exceptionally hard to not only support the learning needs of students, but also their social and emotional needs. I see students proud of the work they are doing, whether it be in core classes or special projects; students have taken up to make a difference both within the school or in the greater community. I see parents and caregivers advocating for their children and supporting them in developing as young adults. It is these factors that make QEHS the great place it is.
Despite the recent cooling effects of our recent weather, there is still lots happening around QEHS. Physical Education and Outdoor Education classes have already had numerous trips off campus and out of the city including camping, hiking, curling and more. We have had field trips to Vertigo Theater, North Glenmore Park and the energy conference at the TELUS Convention Center. This is not to mention the myriad of extra-curricular opportunities occurring in the building.
In our continued effort to provide experiential learning opportunities for our students, there are two significant trips being planned. In the spring of 2020, grade nine students will have the opportunity to go on the sailing trip in the Gulf Island off the coast of Vancouver. Students will spend five days being the crew on a sail boat learning the skills of a mariner as well as marine ecology. In the fall of 2020, students enrolled in Spanish language classes will have the opportunity to travel to Spain for 10 days to refine their Spanish language skills as well as learn the culture and history of Spain. Students can enroll in Spanish classes for term 2 of this school year to take part in next year’s trip.
A parent interest meeting for both of these trips are taking place on Tuesday October 22nd.
For more information on the grade 9 SEAS sailing trip please contact Mrs. Miller at DIMiller@cbe.ab.ca
For more information on the Spain trip please contact Ms. Ingbrigtson at alingbrigtson@cbe.ab.ca
Our fall school athletics program is well underway. Senior high volleyball has three teams competing, junior and varsity boys’ teams as well as a senior girl’s team. Junior high volleyball as junior and senior teams for both boys and girls competing this year. Cross country is running both junior high and senior teams. High school girls’ soccer is occurring in now with high school boys playing in the spring. Additionally we have 6 students playing high school football with our partnership with William Aberhart School. In addition to athletics, many clubs are also running throughout the school from Dungeons and Dragons club to junior and senior debate teams. Thank you to all the staff and community members who are volunteering hundreds of hours to make these program run. If it was not for their willingness to volunteer, often at the expense of time away from their own families and loved ones, these opportunities would not be available to students.
Queen Elizabeth High School will be taking a strong stance against vaping. In coordination with our school police officer any person caught vaping on school property will be issued a $100 fine. We will continue to educate our students on the dangers of vaping.
As of September 30, QEHS enrollment is 981 students. As a school, we are funded by the provincial  government based on our school population as of this date. As an administration team, we then allocate these funds to support the educational needs of our student population. The provincial government has not released their budget yet so we do not know the implications this will have on school operations this year.
Monday, October 7th is our rescheduled Terry Fox run.​
