Bye-bye old sign and welcome NEW Sign

Recently, you may have noticed something new in front of the Whyte Ridge Community Centre at 170 Fleetwood Road. It is our new digital sign; replacing the old sign that has become such a familiar sight since 2007.

While it was great to have the old sign, it was difficult to change (especially in poor weather) and very limited in the message it could display. The new sign has an updated look with our new web page address and a full color LED display measuring 2 feet by 8 feet! The new sign will open a world of possibilities for communicating community events and news as well as advertising to help raise much needed funds for the community centre.
The new sign was entirely funded by the City of Winnipeg’s Land Dedication Grant. A big thank you to Councillor Marty Morantz for his assistance in procuring the funding. This sign is just the beginning of a whole host of big changes we hope to see at our community centre over the coming years including the construction of a gymnasium and expanded community centre, outdoor exercise equipment and further additions to the beautiful natural prairie, interpretive trail and butterfly garden which have already added so much to our facility. If you like the sound of these proposed changes, please get involved and volunteer your time to help make these plans a reality!

Run at the Ridge 2017

May 6, 2017 marked a RECORD attendance at the Run at The Ridge 2km and 5km race.  1403 runners, wearing the color neon yellow, enjoyed the beautiful sun and warm weather.  Adding to the hundreds of Whyte Ridge Community runners, we were excited to see over 80 runners from Carman, Manitoba, 200 runners from Robert H.

Henry G. Izatt School News

The calendar pages are turning quickly and spring has arrived. The HGI team is motivated and working together to prepare our school float for the Pembina Trails Canada 150 event. With our school pillars (Humanity, Growth, Innovation, and Sustainability) in mind, we are creating a float with a dual purpose. Materials on the float will be used or repurposed into the garden project back at the school.

The entire Pembina Trails School Division will be gathering at Investors Group Field on May 24, each school with their celebratory float, along with a mass band for the playing of O Canada, a dance group, a video and many other special activities. Community participants are very welcome to join us. Happy birthday, Canada! https://ewww.pembinatrails.ca/AboutUs/SpecialEvents/Pages/Our-Pembina-Trails-Canada-150-Project.aspx Continue reading “Henry G. Izatt School News” »

Whyte Ridge Elementary School News

Whyte Ridge School celebrates 25 years this fall!

They say “time flies” but who could imagine 25 years has sped past and our wonderful community early years school is already planning its silver anniversary this fall?

Since opening in 1992, thousands of Whyte Ridge children have experienced a positive start to their schooling at Whyte Ridge. Over the years the school has moved quickly with the times; offering the very best in instruction, materials and programming. One priority however, has never changed: providing a supportive and successful first few years of school for the community’s children.  Students like Trinity Frank and Mason Yip can hardly believe the school is already 25 years old and agree “it’s a great environment to learn and grow”.  Valued staff members, like Mr. Schultz, Mrs. Johnson, Mrs. Yetman and Mrs. Meikle have remained with the school since its opening and are well known through the community. They all agree, they cannot imagine a better place to work. Continue reading “Whyte Ridge Elementary School News” »
