It is common at this time of year to reflect on the school year, and look towards next year.

The connection between home and school is vital to student success, and we appreciate your support this year. Looking towards September, know that our school board is busy working on a plan for the new school year. Keep up to date by checking in on the board website over the summer.

Virtual Yearbook 2019-2020

On behalf of the Kortright Hills staff, we would like to wish you and your family a relaxing summer! We can’t wait to be back together again at KHPS, but until then we thought you might enjoy looking at some memories from our 2019 – 2020 school year.

Please note that you must be signed in to a UGCloud account to view the slides in the “Google Classroom”. Once you open the slides, you will have the option to “Add the Shortcut” to your Drive for easier access. Add button is in the top left corner (looks like a Drive symbol with a + sign).

Due to information collected via Freedom of Information forms, some students’ faces have been covered and names removed on the class photo pages. If your child(ren)’s face is covered and you would like the “smiley face” removed and/or name included, please contact Mrs. Morgan ([email protected]). Please include your child(ren)’s name and class in your email.

Thank you!

Report Cards

Report cards for all students in Kindergarten to Grade 7 have been mailed and should be arriving at your homes soon. When they arrive, be sure to celebrate your success and look to set some solid goals for the future. We are proud of the achievements of every student at KHPS this year and we look forward to witnessing even greater accomplishments in the future!

Shopping for School Supplies? - Pembina Hills School Division

Looking Ahead

Before you know it, we will be hearing back-to-school advertisements on radio and television and receiving shopping flyers filled with school supplies. The following information may be helpful for you to make decisions when that time comes. We provide all students with supplies such as pencils, erasers, paper and notebooks through our school budget and it is not necessary for parents to purchase these. Other supplies such as scissors, glue sticks, rulers, markers and crayons are in all classrooms to be shared among students. 

Some children prefer to have their own supplies to keep in their desks. If you choose to purchase items for your child, we recommend the following:
