Welcome to the 2021-2022 School Year!

Welcome SWH Cougars!

We are looking forward to the 2021-2022 school year.

To keep you informed about what’s going in our school, we will be sending out a weekly newsletter every Friday.  This will be used to inform you of the upcoming events and important dates.  They will also be posted on the school website for your reference. 

Please note that timetables and homerooms are NOT FINALIZED and are still being worked on.  With over 650 kids, many factors go into the creation of schedules.  Many hours and considerations have gone into the creation of the homerooms including teacher input, student input, class configurations, student needs, and the number of students in each class.  Any requests to change homerooms or options can be made after September 10th.

Timetables will be available on September 1st on PowerSchool and students will have a paper copy printed for them in their homerooms.  Sherwood Heights uses a 6 day, 6 periods a day schedule and all classes are 53 minutes long.  There is a 9-minute break between periods 2 & 3 and a one-hour lunch break.  The bell schedule is also posted on the school website, and you can find a copy here as well.

The Grade 7 and new student orientation will be on Tuesday, August 31 from 1:00 p.m. – 2:00 p.m.  In order to keep numbers as low as possible, we ask that each family only bring one parent/guardian. 

Lockers are already assigned and will be available on the first day of school. Locks are provided by the school.

Please don't hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or concerns.  We will do our best to get back to you in a timely manner. 

  • Mr. Amit Mali (Principal) is the contact for Grade 9 students
  • Mme Tandy Atchison (Assistant Principal) is the contact for Grade 8 students
  • Mrs. Jess Miskiw (Assistant Principal/School Counsellor) is the contact for Grade 7 students

We look forward to meeting all our Cougars on Wednesday, September 1st!  Homerooms will be posted that morning outside at the school and staff will be available to assist and welcome our new and returning students.  It’s going to be a great year!

 

Sincerely,

Sherwood Heights Junior High Administration
