Whispering Ridge Community School
November 2023 Newsletter
To our WRCS families,
Welcome to another busy month here at Whispering Ridge Community School. It is hard to believe that two months have already come and gone. We are happy to be settled into our day-to-day routines and have established many positive relationships within our building. There are a number of incredible things happening at WRCS this month that will be highlighted in this newsletter as well as on our Facebook page.
We wanted to thank all of our parents and guardians who took the time out of their busy schedules to come speak with teachers at parent teacher interviews. As a school, we certainly value your support and appreciate our partnership in your child’s education. While we only have two scheduled meetings in a school year, communication is necessary to ensure your child has a successful year. Please feel free to reach out to your child's teacher should you have any questions or concerns.
A big thank you to all our parents from our Particparent group for organizing and volunteering your time to make our WRCS Halloween dance such a successful evening!
Inevitably now that it is November, comes colder weather and unpredictable temperatures. It would be beneficial for your child to be prepared with warm and suitable clothing as children do spend periods of their day outside for recess. Please familiarize yourself with our policies concerning bus cancellations and school operation during inclement weather.
If any parents are interested in attending our School Council or Participarent group, please feel free to join us! Both of these groups provide vital feedback and support to the school.
As always, please reach out to us if you have any questions or concerns, we are happy to assist in any way we can. I am looking forward to another great year together.

Whispering Ridge Community School Fees
Please try to have your school fees paid as soon as possible.
In order to ensure we can continue to offer enriching learning experiences and optimal programming for our students, we are instating a small school fee for students in grades 1-8. The school administration team worked with our School Council group to weigh the pros and cons, and to ensure that this decision was supported moving forward. So with the support of our School Council, we will kindly ask that each family pay a small fee of $30 per student.
What will this money be used for?
Purchasing additional resources/supplies to enhance learning
Supporting enrichment projects and activities
Additional off-site learning opportunities
Helping with the rising costs of operation and basic supplies
How do I pay this fee?
Our school office accepts cash, cheque, and debit
What if I can’t afford this?
Please reach out to Mrs. Stilwell directly and we can work something out
