Good afternoon parents!

1.  Sports are in full swing at Wascana Plains with both volleyball teams and the cross-country team training several times a week.  Many students have submitted applications to the United Bison Council (our student council) and the team will be selected next week. We look forward to seeing what leadership they provide to our school family.  

We're Back!

Good morning Bison families,

Last night you should have received a package of forms including a letter from me, permission forms, lunchroom registration, and an emergency report.  Please complete them as soon as possible as we rely on this information.  Students with life-threatening conditions also received additional forms.  If your child has a condition we need to know about please contact us immediately.

We need your help! 

Our student leadership team, the UBC (United Bison Council), is coordinating an event to promote anti-racism. 

With the books purchased for our multi-language Glenrose Homes Collection, students and parents who speak languages other than English are invited to come read a book in their first language to a class during the week of March 19-22. 

Snow and More Snow!

Good afternoon families,

As you may have already heard, all transportation will be canceled again tomorrow (Wednesday). The school will be open. If you choose to keep your child at home please let the office know.
