Things continue to move forward at Woodhaven Middle School, despite the extremely cold weather we continue to deal with! Take a quick read of what’s happening for our kids.

Ski Club and Marmot Trip

Students in grades 5-8 have been enjoying our weekly Ski Club at Snow Valley. It’s been great to see so many kids excited to be active and outside!

While training has been temporarily postponed due to weather conditions, we are excited for the 15 Woodhaven students who will be joining approximately 200 other Parkland School Divisions for this fantastic trip this Spring.


Our Basketball season is well under way with 6 separate Wolfpack teams representing our school with skill and pride! We have over 100 players developing their skills and having fun!

Grade 9 High School Transition Meeting

As we continue to prepare our grade 9 students for their transition to High School next year, we are excited to welcome the high school staff to our school on Tuesday, February 19th in the morning. At this time high school administration and grade level counselors will introduce themselves to our students, talk a bit about what kids can expect at SGCHS and answer a few questions.
