A Message from the Superintendent


Dear Westwind Families

As we near the end of the 2017-18 school year, I want to thank you, our students, staff, community based partners and Westwind families for a productive year.  We are also grateful for the contributions of our retiring staff members and wish them well in their future endeavours.

On behalf of the Westwind School Division Board of Trustees and Administration I would like to congratulate the class of 2018. Our graduates have had support from many people on their educational journey, most importantly our Westwind families and educators. I am confident that our graduates are going to do wonderful things in the world and positively represent our Southern Alberta communities as they further their education and enter into their careers. I have no doubt that they will thrive.  

We look forward to welcoming many new teachers and staff members to our Westwind family next year. Our Division Office team will be working hard over the summer to prepare for and welcome back students for a great 2018-19 school year. We will be building on the positive changes that this year as brought and greeting your children on the first day of school, September 4, 2018.  At Westwind, are committed to being a collaborative community of engaged learners and inspiring all students to realize their full and complete potential.

I hope you have a enjoyable and relaxing summer break.  It is a privilege to serve you, your children and this Division.

Warm wishes,

Ken Sommerfeldt

Superintendent of Schools
