Our team name and mascot is the "Grey Wolves". Go Grey Wolves!

Our School Name

The school is named for Griffith Woods Park, a natural environment park in southwest Calgary with a mature white spruce forest and wetlands. The park, located beside the Elbow River, was established in 2000 after Wilbur and Betty Griffith donated land from their estate to the City of Calgary. As a Special Protection Natural Environment Park, Griffith Woods Park is a popular destination for nature enthusiasts.

Wilbur Griffith was an oil lease broker, farmer, rancher and land developer. He also constructed the Pinebrook Golf and Country Club. The Griffiths resided in the community of Springbank. The school naming committee recommended this name to the Board of Trustees after gathering and evaluating stakeholder input on possible names. The committee was comprised of CBE Trustees, parent and/or community representatives and members of CBE administration.

Our School's Commitment to Truth and Reconciliation

We are committed to acknowledging and supporting the implementation of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission 94 Calls to Action specific to education. In 2021, our school, along with all CBE schools made a TRC Commitment to Action. On June 21, 2022, we renewed our commitment, which can be found under Resources.​​

​​School Development Plan

​Each year, our school prepares a development plan with input from teachers, school staff, students and parents. We review many sources of data, including report cards, provincial achievement test results and school surveys. Based on this information, we create our plan identifying targeted areas for growth. Our school development plan is not meant to represent all of the work that takes place in our school, but rather it focuses on specific areas for improvement.​​​

​​​School Improvement Results Report

Our school also prepares a results plan, which looks at our previous school year. It shows our students’ achievement and progress in meeting the goals and outcomes as set out by the CBE and Alberta Education, outlines some of the highlights of our school development plan and gives an overview of our school. You can look on the CBE website for system-wide results​.
