Message From The Principal

November 2022

Principal’s Message

The month of November is a month of remembrance for the sacrifices made by the men and women in uniform in past and current conflicts. Our Remembrance Day ceremonies will be in person for the first time in a couple of years and we welcome the opportunity to be together as we recognize an important and solemn event.  Didsbury High School will be recognizing Remembrance Day at 11:00 AM on November 9 and the Fall Band Concert will be held later that evening.


November is also the time in which our grade 12 students have been putting some serious thought into life after high school.   All the grade 12 students have been in contact with the academic counselor at this stage and many of them have made applications to post secondary institutions with several already being granted conditional acceptance to universities.


Mr. Dick and the Careers team will next be meeting with grade 11 students to help them map out their grade 12 year and their plans for life after high school.  Grade 10 students will receive time to explore careers in CALM class and our grade 9 students will engage in similar activities in their High School Prep class in the second semester. Our ultimate goal is to eventually have program in place that starts students thinking and
planning for life after high school the moment they set foot in our building in Grade 9.


Our Drama and Theater Tech students have been working hard on their production of “Biggity Bad & The Three Little Pigs” for three public showings the first weekend in December.  A successful volleyball season will be winding up and basketball kicking into gear in the coming weeks.


Although the year seems to creep along, it is deceptive because as of this writing there are only 35 school days left until Christmas break.


Have a great November and a great fall break.
