William D. Cuts Newsletter

February 2022


We are off and running in Semester Two and it seems winter has come back in earnest. With absences coming down from January, we have shifted back to students moving to classes, the concession is now open again, and clubs and activities are back up and running.

Parent-teacher interviews will be February 17th and 24th, and sign up will be open on the 7th; we will continue with online or phone calls at this time. We look forward to the conversations we have with parents and if there are things that come up outside of interview times, please contact us. These will be the last formal interviews we have this year but we do want to ensure the lines of communication are always open.

Junior High registration is open for next year, links can be found on the WD Cuts or St. Albert Public schools websites. The Hockey and Recreation Academy registrations will open for everybody in March. Make sure to get your registration done early to ensure your spot in these programs. Option forms will be sent out at a later date. Our open house will provide some more information on Hockey and Rec as well as the option courses we will be offering next year. The open house will take place Thursday, March 10.

Have a great long weekend next week.
