September at Queen Elizabeth High School


Queen Elizabeth High School

Welcome back to school to all of our students and parents! It is our hope that the summer was wonderful and filled with lots of adventures.

One of our goals this year is to cultivate greater community connections and relationships. Monthly contributions to Great News community newsletters are part of this commitment. We would also like to work with local businesses, organizations and individuals. Our initial ideas are to start a speaker series and/or mentorship program with members from the community. If you have an idea for how we might be able to cultivate greater community connections and relationships, please contact Rachel Pruitt at

Please visit our website at for September class information. Grade 7 and Grade 10 students will start classes on Tuesday September 5. All other grades will have their first day of classes on September 6. Our office is open to parents on Wednesday, August 30.

High school girls’ soccer tryouts will happen early September. There is an informational meeting after school on September 8 in Room 231 with Coach Perfect.

Our school will hold our Terry Fox Run for cancer research on Thursday September 28. Please join us to either participate or donate. Our school assembly will be held at 10:30am with the run to follow. Please visit our website for more information.

If you have refundables (bottles, cans and milk/juice cartons) collecting, Queen Elizabeth Band students would love to take them off your hands! We will be in your neighbourhood on Saturday October 14. Band Director Shannon Fehr would then like to thank you for your support the best way she knows how – by welcoming you to a band concert on Wednesday October 18. Please visit the website for more information closer to the date.
