Terry Fox Run

Our school based Terry Fox run serves to inspire everyone to get involved and try.  The Terry Fox foundation encourages everyone to “Try like Terry.”  We will begin raising money for the Terry Fox foundation on Monday September 20, 2021( Donations can be made here).  This coming week, students will learn more about Terry’s legacy and participate in grade based runs on Friday October 1, 2021.  


Extra Curricular News 

This week our students have returned to some of the activities that help create a well rounded high school experience.  We are thrilled to see the return of our concert band, sports teams like volleyball, cross country running and golf.  

As a school we are working hard to balance the requirement to keep our students safe with social distancing, good hand hygiene and masking, with extra curricular initiatives.  We do ask that students who are not directly working with teachers or involved in an extracurricular activity leave school at 3:30 so that we can properly clean our spaces. 


Please continue to check out upcoming dates on our school website calendar.

For more detailed information please check out our daily announcements.

September 30, 2021 National Day for Truth and Reconciliation

September 30, 2021 will be a day of observance for the Truth and Reconciliation calls to action.  TRC #80 states:

“We call upon the federal government in collaboration with Aboriginal peoples to establish as a statutory holiday, a National Day for Truth and Reconciliation to honour Survivors, their families, and communitie, and ensure that public commemoration of the history and legacy of residential schools remains a vital component of the reconciliation process.”  

Please see the letter sent from our district that outlines this change to our calendar.  Note there will be no school on this day.  Our school is also planning a learning opportunity on September 29, 2021 to learn together about Truth and Reconciliation.



We continue to follow the both directives outlined by Alberta Health Services and the Canadian Rockies Reentry plan for 2021/22.  Within these plans, families are asked to follow the AHS daily screening checklist for signs and symptoms of COVID.  Anyone with COVID symptoms is asked to follow the isolation guidelines as directed by AHS.  Please call 811, to inquire with AHS to clarify isolation if you have concerns about your student’s health

This year we have returned to live learning.  Please note that we are not using virtual learning this year.  Students who are required to stay at home should contact the school to excuse their absences and should contact their classroom teacher for updates on missed work.

Our first school council meeting will be held virtually on September 21 at 7:00pm.  This first meeting will be held virtually and the link to the meeting will be found below in the upcoming events and on our website calendar.  This be our regular monthly meeting in preparation for AGM to wrap up the 2020/21 school year, which will include the selection of executive positions for the upcoming year.
