Principal's Message - March 2020

March 2020

  • I would like to thank Mrs. Enyedy for being the acting principal of our school while I was away on medical leave. Our administrative team that was in charge (Mrs. Enyedy, Mrs. Lotoski, Mrs. Murat and Mrs. Belland) did an outstanding job of keeping our school moving forward. I would also like to thank our administrative assistants (Mrs. Lovell, Mrs. Lavalle and Mrs. Spady) for their continued great work in keeping the main office running smoothly. I have been back to work on a part time basis since the start of semester two on February 3rd.   
  • Our second semester is off to a great start. The start of semester two also means the start of graduation planning and the practicing of the “Grand March”.
  • I would like to thank Mrs. Klevgaard for volunteering her time, knowledge and expertise to orchestrate our “Grand March” once again this year. 
  • There have been 2 Grad / Parent meetings and all of the parent grad committees have been filled. Thanks to all of the parents that have volunteered their time to be a part of Grad 2020. If you are still interested in helping with any of our grad committees, please call Mrs. Lotoski.
  • There are still a large number of students that have not paid their school fees and have outstanding accounts for the 2019-2020 school year. 
  • We have close to  $40,000 of outstanding student fees that have not been paid (almost half of our student body). 
  • If you have not paid your school fees, I would ask that you take the time to clear your child’s accounts. Also, please remember that if students plan to be involved in extracurricular activities, including Graduation activities, their school fees need to be paid in full before they will be allowed to participate.
  •  If your school account has been cleared, I would like to thank you for doing so. If you are having difficulties paying your school account or if you are not sure whether you owe any money for your child’s account please call our school.
  • Currently, we are working on our registration process for next year. Students will be starting to bring home information regarding their registration for the 2020-2021 school year. Please spend some time discussing your child’s choices of course selections as well as the recommendations from their previous report cards so that they may be placed in the appropriate level of academic courses for optimum success. 
  • This year, we are hoping to do the registration of all our students using our Student Information System (PowerSchool). This will require all parents to have their child’s username and passwords that are tied to PowerSchool in order to complete and submit registration forms online. If we are unable to get the online registration process ready on time, we will revert back to paper registration forms. 
  • Between the dates of April 22 - 24 our current grade 7-11 students will be completing their registration during the school day. 
  • Our Administration and Student Services Personnel will also be meeting with the Stettler Elementary School and Botha School Grade 6 students between April 7 - April 9 at their respective schools to discuss their programming for next year. 
  • All parents will need to electronically sign the online consent form before submitting the the registration form online by Friday May 1. Your child’s registration will only be considered complete once they have selected their courses online and the parent/guardian have signed it electronically and then submitted.
  • On Thursday April 9 all of our current grade 9 students, plus the Erskine, Big Valley, Donalda, Byemoor and Christ King grade 9 students will be going through an orientation at our school in the Bi-Flex Room (time TBD).
  • On Tuesday April 14 at 6:30 P.M. Our administrative team will be hosting a parent information night in the Performing Arts Centre. 
  • From 6:30 P.M. – 7:15 P.M. The presentation and information will be a Grade 7-9 focus and from 7:15 P.M. – 8:30 P.M. It will be a Grade 10-12 focus. 
  • There will be more detailed information coming out in our April newsletter regarding all of our registration timelines and procedures. However, if you have any questions regarding our registration process at this point and time please feel free to contact the school. 
  • If you will have a son or daughter in grade 12 next year please remember to pay particular attention to all of the graduation requirements that are listed in our Course Offerings Book. 
  • March 5th will be Parent / Teacher Interviews for our Grade 7 & 8 students from 4:00 P.M. - 6:00 P.M. 
  • Early Intervention Letters will be mailed home on March 12.  If you receive an early intervention letter, it is strongly recommended that you attend our Parent Teacher Interview Night on April 9 for Grade 9 - 12 studnets to find out from your child’s teacher the reason and explanation for the letter coming home. 
  • If you were unable to make it during our Parent Teacher Interviews, you are more than welcome to call the school at 403-742-3466 to arrange an appointment to meet with your child’s teachers. 
  • If there are any items of interest to you that you would like me to address in the monthly newsletters, please call or email me ( and we can discuss them. Finally, I hope that everyone has a relaxing and enjoyable Spring Break (March 30 – April 3)
  • As always, please feel free to contact me at the school if you have any questions or concerns.
