Canadian Anti-Spam Legislation Email Update Required
To ensure EIPS continues to comply with the Canadian Anti-Spam Legislation, we require parents/guardians to subscribe/unsubscribe for emails as of February 15, 2017. These include routine emails from your school or the Division about events, activities, etc. You will continue to receive emergency messages and school fee-related information. Visit www.eips.ca/contact/synrevoice to subscribe/unsubscribe by March 1.
Information regarding the registration process for the 2017/2018 school year will be discussed with all current and incoming (designated) Sherwood Heights students in March and early April. Students will then complete the registration process in mid April.
2017-2018 Boundary Exemption Requests
Students who want to register at a non-designated school for the 2017-2018 school year must fill out and submit a Boundary Exemption Request form to their desired school between February 1 and April 7, 2017. There is no secondary or late process.
The Boundary Exemption Request form is available here. However, please note that the forms can only be dropped off at your requested/non-designated school during the boundary exemption process time frame, between February 1st and April 7th.
What is Your Designated School?
You can determine your child's designated school using the powerful Versatrans e-Link® tool.
All parents are invited to attend parent council meetings at Sherwood Heights. Our next meeting will be held on Tuesday, March 21 at 7:00 pm in our school library.
We do not have a fundraising society, as we focus on discussion topics and communication. Some examples of topics that can be discussed are:
- Junior High Report Cards
- Feedback on administrative procedures
- Healthy Schools Initiative
- Digital Citizenship
- Math curriculum
We would like to build an active school council, that can support the school in our many initiatives and the school education plan. How do we want to build our school community, and create parent engagement? We are looking forward to seeing you at our next meeting.
Please make note of our Parent Council Meeting dates (all at 7:00 pm in the Sherwood Heights Library):
We look forward to seeing you there!
