Changes in the Administration Office
Our Assistant Principal, Kate Newfield, will be heading out on maternity leave at the end of February. We are going to miss her, but are excited for her to grow her family. Congrats Kate!  
Kim Brocanier will be covering the assistant principal position during Kate’s leave, joining principal Katie Blasetti on the New Heights school administration team.
Kim is a familiar face for many of our staff, students and families. She has been a teacher with New Heights for many years, as well as covered the Transition to Adulthood Coordinator position last year during Jen’s maternity leave.
Kim is returning to New Heights at the end of February, following her own maternity leave.
More Masks from Alberta Education
Alberta Education has sent a limited number of child sized face masks and youth/adult sized face masks for students and staff who may need to refresh their supply.
If your student requires a new mask, please send an email to They will be first come, first served until our supply runs out.

The child sized masks are the same Old Navy ones we received in September.

The youth/adult sized masks are different this time, using a t-shirt like material. Our SLP Jasmine is modelling this new design in the photo below
