From the Principal/Welcome Message
Happy December ‘Cat Parents,
We trust this newsletter finds you wrapped up in all that is December. The new school is coming along nicely ( I am sure you can hear the pile pounding:))) Our Christmas concert goes Tuesday, December 12 starting at 7PM and will prove to be another amazing performance by some talented kids under the guidance of the illustrious Laurie Shapka.
Volleyball was very successful this year for the ‘Cats as the girls came away with silver medals; and the boys came home with the bronze...a truly amazing accomplishment for us. Basketball is well underway here at the school. The Red Deer Middle School Athletic Association (RDMSAA) will be playing with Red Deer Catholic this year and we are really looking forward to some new opportunities for our kids to experience in basketball. We will have three different opportunities at WMS for our kids to play. The City division will be the three middle schools (Westpark, Central and Eastview) along with Fox Run and possibly three Red Deer Catholic Schools. Each of those teams will take 12 players and play against each other. We will also have a senior team that will play in the regular RDMSAA basketball league (also playing against Red Deer Catholic Schools) and then all other players interested in playing basketball will play in our intramural program so everybody will still have a place to play.
One Book Many Schools finished up in November...Rebel Glory turned out to be a great book for our kids to read and we hope you had a great time at the game. We hope that you are continuing to read at home with your kids as it is the number one factor in helping our kids be successful in schools.
On behalf of all the students and staff, we wish you a wonderful holiday season full of family, friends and laughter. We look forward to starting the new year well rested and ready to learn:))
The Wildcat Administration Team.
