Schools in Transition
WELCOME to Ecole Barrie Wilson School!
As you know, several Red Deer Public elementary schools will be undergoing attendance boundary changes starting in the 2017/18 school year.
At École Barrie Wilson School, we strive to empower learners to develop and celebrate curiosity while nurturing hope, through authentic experiences. We are particularly proud of our focus on academic achievement, technology, project based learning and student wellness. Our school is located in the Timberlands community. Currently we have 525 students attending our schools from all of the neighbourhoods east of 30th avenue. Our staff is committed to meeting the needs of individual students and we are also very pleased to have an engaged parent community as valued partners in our school.
As we prepare for these changes, we want to keep you informed throughout the process.
We are also currently preparing welcoming plans to get you familiar and comfortable with your new school. This will include an open house and meet the teacher night this spring. We also welcome you to meet with us if there are any particular issues or concerns we can work on together.
We recognize that these changes will affect a number of families and we are committed to making the transition as smooth as possible. While these are significant changes, we look forward to the opportunities they provide to enrich student learning and success. To assist with this, we have included a number of strategies that you might want to use in preparing your child for the changes.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me. I, along with the staff at Ecole Barrie Wilson, look forward to having you a part of our school community.
