Have you met Anna and Colton?
At New Heights we have a Music Instructor on staff. Anna Spencer has been the music instructor at New Heights for many years. Each week she provides music classes for students in Turtle Mountain, Mount Kidd, Skoki Mountain, Copper Mountain, Mount Rundle, Cascade Mountain, Tower Mountain, and Pyramid Mountain classrooms.
Anna is also joined on Wednesdays by our Music Assistant Colton. Colton is a New Heights alumni and valued member of our music team at New Heights.

Extra Masks
Due to the generosity of our Parent Advisory Council (PAC), New Heights was able to boost the Alberta Education supply of student masks to ensure we had enough masks, enough sizes, and a greater variety of color/design choices for our students from ECS through high school. Thank you again to our PAC!
Because of the additional masks provided by PAC, we do have a limited number of reusable masks in the small size and regular size still available.
If your student needs an additional mask, please send a note to and let us know.
The masks will be given on a first asked, first served basis until they are gone
