January is Numeracy Month!

In January, Southwood School is celebrating Numeracy Month. The month will be kicked off with a numeracy assembly on January 10th @ 2 p.m. Throughout January there will be time for your children to play games, experience new math ideas and grow their math minds. We look forward to engaging your children in some new math thinking this month.

Literacy Link

Something new on the Southwood website for parents and students...


Take a look at the new LITERACY link. There you will find wonderful activities, videos and ideas to help instill a love of reading and writing in your child(ren). *Keep checking the website routinely since new items may appear at any time.

The Learning Expo: Living Things

Every year, Southwood School hosts a Learning Expo at the end of March. This year our school will be focusing on the provincial science curriculum. Particularly in the area of "Living Things". We are happy to have Wildlife Haven working in partnership with us.

Kindergarten Registration

Kindergarten Registration for the 2020-21 school year will open on January 6, 2020. The registration process will take place online at HSD.ca. If you do not have access to the Internet, please visit our school (after registration has opened), and we will assist you in completing the registration form on a school computer.


Parents/Guardians are encouraged to register their children as soon as possible upon the opening of registration, or by mid-February at the latest. Registering early will assist our school in preparation and planning for the upcoming school year. Early registration also provides parents/guardians with the opportunity to participate in upcoming 2020-21 orientation activities.


Children must be five years of age on or before December 31, 2020 to be eligible for 2020-21 registration, and are required to attend the school within the catchment area in which they reside.


Please visit the divisional website at HSD.ca for complete details and instructions.
