October Updates from EMHS

It feels like it’s been a while since I’ve reached out to our entire school community however I truly appreciate all of you who’ve taken the time to contact me with questions, concerns and to share your thoughts on the great job our students and staff are doing amidst these ongoing challenging times. While we all hoped to start the year under closer to “normal” circumstances, we haven’t been able to do so….YET. Please read on for a few updates on what’s happening in our school community.

Extracurricular Activities

We know how much our kids have missed their extracurricular activities over the past…YEAR! We are so proud and thankful that we have both staff and parents who have stepped up to offer so many opportunities. We have 6 volleyball teams running, supporting our athletes from grades 6-9! X-Country Running has just wrapped up with over 100 participants on our K-6 team and dozens more on our 7-9 team! Not to be outdone, Ms. Ausman has resumed band practices…outdoors! And Mrs. Huedepohl has choir up and running for students in grades 7-9!

School Council

We are fortunate to once again have an amazing group of parents supporting our school through our School Council. School Council is a great way to connect with other parents, administration, teachers and our local Trustees. Please consider joining us to learn what’s happening in our school. Our next meeting is Wednesday, October 13th from 6:30 – 8:00 p.m. RSVP to meridianheightsscchair@psd70.ab.ca for the link to join us virtually.

Parent/Student/Teacher Interviews – Tuesday, Oct 19th and Wednesday Oct 20th 4:00 – 7:00 p.m.

Don’t forget to mark your calendars for our upcoming Virtual Parent/Student/Teacher Conferences on Tuesday, October 19th and Wednesday October 20th from 4:00 – 7:00 p.m. Information on how to sign up for a time slot can be found in this 2 minute video. Kindergarten Interviews to review the EYE (Early Years Evaluation) will be scheduled in November with information coming in the upcoming weeks for these interviews.

Congratulations! Champions Once Again!

We are super proud to share that Ecole Meridian Heights School has won the X-Country Championship for Parkland School Division once again this year. Under the coaching of Mr. Hallowes and Mme Pronovost, along with several other staff volunteers, over 100 students brought the banner home! Congratulations to all of our athletes, their coaches and to our dedicated parents!!!

Until next time,

Mr. S. Patras

Principal, Ecole Meridian Heights School
