Principal's Message

2021-22 Year End Message

​Happy Summer One and All!
We’re closed J: Our office is now officially closed for the summer.  We will be officially open at 8:30AM on Monday, August 29, and we will be happy to support families and answer questions then. Office emails and voice mail will not be monitored over the summer.   If your family is experiencing non-emergent difficulties, you can contact Access Mental Health at 403-943-1500.  This may be a good entry point for you to the many community services available.
Back to School 2022-23 Information:  Please check here for back to school information.  This will include our start date, first day staggered entry information, school hours, school supplies, and our 2022-23 school calendar.
Yearbook 2021-22:  Wow, what a year!  Our yearbook committee has worked tirelessly to put together a keepsake for all.  To avoid disappointment, please order today.  It is still available for purchase.  If you are interested in ordering this year's yearbook please log into your MyCBE account and click Fees, Waivers & Service Registration to find the fee. The Yearbook fee is $35 and has been posted to accounts (Other Fees) so you can pay online if you are interested. The delivery for the yearbook will be in the Fall.
School Council and Society:  Thank you to our many parents who have volunteered to support our school through Council and Society leadership, and to those who have supported the many initiatives offered.  We send a special thank you to parents who have volunteered to fill formal roles for the 2022-23 school year, and an equally special thank you to parents who have served terms and are moving on.  Minutes from our last School Council meeting can be found here:  WRS Council Minutes June 2022 .  Our first meeting for the 2022-23 school year is Monday September 12 @ 6:30 PM.
School Start Procedures:  You will receive an email of introduction from your child’s homeroom teacher on Wednesday, August 31 at about 2:00PM.  This email will also outline first day procedures.
Staffing Updates:  We wish to say good-bye and thank you to some of our staff, and to make introductions for others…
Good luck and thank you to: Mrs Reid and Mrs Janke who are both retiring, Mrs Sohaib (moving to Battillion Park School as an education assistant),  Mrs  Mrs Makowski (moving to Belvedere Parkway School as a learning leader),  Mrs Chow (moving to Queen Elizabeth School as a learning leader),  Mr Pentney (moving to The National Sports School), and Mrs McCullough (moving to Twelve Mile Coulee School).  Your years in support of students at WRS have made the difference in the learning and lives of countless people, and we are so grateful to have shared time with you!  We have also had several teachers support our school through temporary contracts. Thank you to Ms Santucci, Ms Nagel, Mr Pedersen and Mr Ho for your outstanding service to our school and our students this year, and we wish you well in the next steps of your career!
We are excited to welcome: Mrs Londa Oleson (Grade 5, coming from John Ware School), Mrs Robyn Cote (Grade 5, coming from Olympic Heights School), Mr Craig Mansell (Grade 5, coming from Nickle School),  Mr Robert Coulas (Learning Leader, Grade 6, coming from Dr Roberta Bondar School),  Mrs Callin Ford (Grade 7 Humanities, coming from Bob Edwards School), Mr Matt Thompson (Grade 8/9 Math/Science, coming from Arbour Lake School) and  Mrs Erica Dunwoody (Inclusive Practices Learning Leader/Resource Teacher, coming from CBE System Inclusive Learning Strategist Team).
 A Final Thank You:  My first year at West Ridge School has been the most exciting, inspiring, challenging and devastating year of my career… I think many of us can say that about this year.  That said, I am honoured to be part of this incredible school team and am grateful for the outstanding professionals I work with and for.  I am equally honoured to be part of this amazing community and am grateful to our supportive parents.  The heart of West Ridge School, always, is our student community- you are the best part of every day- Thank you for enriching all of our lives!
To our students and families who are moving to different schools, and especially our Grade 9’s who are off to High School, we wish you only wonderful things as you pursue your next steps.  Come back and visit!  Once a Raptor, always a Raptor…
To our new students, welcome to West Ridge School and we can’t wait to meet you!
To our returning students, we miss you already...See you September 1!!!!!!​
