Principal's Message

Hello Windsong Heights Families,

Finally we have some wonderful sunshine and the puddles have dried up. There is a lot happening at Windsong as we start our last two months of the school year. Our annual food bank drive, "Hungry Like a Wolf" kicks off today!  We are targeting the items most needed, rather than by weight this year. We know that wages have not kept pace with the increased expenses families have each month. If you are able to donate, please know it is appreciated and that every little bit helps. The Airdrie Food Bank supports hungry kids at our school every day. They deliver snacks to tide over kids who have forgotten snacks or lunch - or just do not have enough. We always run out. Ask your child if they have ever accessed food from school - either through office snacks, class food baskets or the breakfast program. We know kids learn better when their stomachs are not empty.

With warm weather we have more families walking to school - which is fantastic and helps with traffic.  A reminder that if your child rides their bike, skateboard, or scooter - everyone must walk their wheels on school grounds.  As well - bikes, scooters and skateboards should be locked up and cannot be brought into school. They are a safety hazard.

On a personal note, I will be retiring at the end of June. It has been an honour and privilege to work with your children and many of you as well. This will be a bittersweet year end for me; but I know change is good and can be reinvigorating for systems as well as people. Rocky View Schools has not announced my replacement yet. When they do we will be sure to share that information with you. In the meantime, I will continue to work for a smooth transition as we prepare for the ending of this school year and the start of the next.

Penny Beaudry
Proud Principal of Windsong Heights School
