A Message from the Principal - June 20, 2022

Dear Hillhurst Families,

What a great year we have had!

On behalf of the entire staff at Hillhurst School, I would like to say how incredibly proud we are of every student.  While we began the year under health restrictions, we ended in a much more 'normal' way, with class presentations, field trips, buddy class experiences, fun lunch and playing together at recess.  With every new adventure, came excitement and most importantly, learning.  For our younger learners, they did not really know what they were missing, however for many of our students, they most certainly did.  I want to thank them for their resiliency, patience and understanding through it all. 


I am incredibly optimistic for the 2022-23 school year.  I look forward to vast and rich learning experiences for students. I look forward to volunteers in the building and parents invited to share in student learning, and more importantly, I look forward to becoming the school community we once were.


Please check our website for information about Back-To-School at: https://school.cbe.ab.ca/school/hillhurst/registration/register/back-to-school/pages/default.aspx


We look forward to welcoming students back to school on Thursday, September 1st at 8:45am.  The school office will be open starting Monday, August 29th at 8am if you wish to contact us beforehand.


Have a safe and fun-filled summer.

Karen Pope
