Principal’s Message

I hope everyone reading this has enjoyed a wonderful summer and made lots of memories with their friends and loved ones. My summer was incredible and I enjoyed time with my family and competing on my horse, Destin.

It’s with a full heart that I welcome everyone to a new school year in beautiful Whispering Ridge! I am so excited to be the new principal of such an incredible school, and I look forward to working collaboratively with staff and parents to continue making our school a very special place to work and learn. I strongly believe in the power of meaningful relationships and the important role connection plays in fostering an effective learning environment. Please feel comfortable reaching out to me directly at any point during the school year.

The staff of Whispering Ridge Community School are an incredible group of educators and professionals who care deeply for students. They are knowledgeable and have high expectations of themselves. I truly could not be more blessed to work alongside such wonderful people.


Sincerely,

Mrs. Abby Stilwell

Principal (Whispering Ridge Community School)

DROP OFF AND PICK UP

Our school parking lot can be incredibly busy. Please be very careful when driving through, and ensure that you're always letting your children out of the vehicle along the sidewalk. We are working with our School Council as well as the school division to mitigate the congestion, but the fact is we simply have a very large population and the parking lot and drop-off lane gets full fast.

Given our high population of students, parents are asked to please wait outside the building at the beginning and end of each school day. Our hallways are very crowded with students (and staff), and this helps us to mitigate congestion while also ensuring we know who is in our building at any given time during the day. It is a great idea to plan a meeting point with your child where they know to look for you.

Whispering Ridge Community School School Fees

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, starting in the 2022-2023 school year, 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
