Weekly Update | April 21, 2017


Good afternoon Parents/Guardians,


Chilly end to the week to be sure. Today students took part in our first Track day at McKenzie Highlands. Today's activities also helped Track coaches to build their teams for the upcoming meet in May.


As part of our Emergency Preparedness Planning, we will be having our first Fire and Lock Down Drills in the new building next week. Teachers and staff will be reviewing with students the procedures and expectations for both events. Calgary Police Service will be present for the Lock Down drill.


Are you moving over the summer? Will your student be attending a different school in the fall? If you know that your child(ren) will not be attending McKenzie Highlands this upcoming September, could you please let the office know by Monday April 24th.

in learning more about this fantastic GR 9 opportunity. Trip is going October 2017, meeting will be held May 11, 2017 at 7pm at the school.


Deadline to purchase a yearbook for the first year at McKenzie Highlands is Friday April 28th. Yearbooks cost $35 and will be delivered to students in September. We chose the late date for this first year so we could get as much content from our new building as possible into the book. If you are not sure if your student has a yearbook on order, have your student come to the office to check with me. I can add the yearbook, and you can pay online; send a cheque or cash to the office; or come into the office and pay debit / credit.

April Principal's Message


Welcome back from what I hope was a relaxing and rejuvenating Spring Break for all! The next three months will be fast and furious as we sprint toward the finish line of our inaugural season at McKenzie Highlands!


I would like to remind all of our upcoming Open House this Thursday, April 6 at 6:30 p.m.  I invite you for a tour of our beautiful new school and the opportunity to hear about our plans for the upcoming 2017-18 school year.  Just a reminder that our official school opening will be held on Friday, May 12 at 10:00 a.m.

Planning for the next school year has already begun in earnest.  Over the course of the next few weeks, our projected number of students will be finalized and we will receive our budget from which to deploy resources for the 2017-18 school year.  We are excited by the prospect of our population growing significantly and the opportunity that will present to further broaden and enrich student complementary learning experiences.
