Closed Boundaries for Kindergarten to Grade 6 in 2014-15
Win Ferguson Elementary has closed boundaries for the 2014-15 school year for all students in Kindergarten to Grade 6.
This means that because of our numbers, our school is only able to accept students from our boundary area. This does not apply to students who are applying to PALS or LINKS programs, or our grandfathered families.
Attention PALS parents with students entering Kindergarten, next year!!
Because of closed boundaries at Win Ferguson, your child must go to their designated school for Kindergarten. If you do not live in the Win Ferguson Boundaries, your child will not be able to attend Kindergarten at Win Ferguson.

Every Empty Counts
We are excited to announce Win Ferguson's participation in the Every Empty Counts School Program, which is offered at no charge by the Alberta Beverage Container Recycling Corporation. This innovative stewardship and education program has collected and diverted more than 4 million beverage containers from Alberta landfills.
As participants in the Every Empty Counts program, we receive free beverage container recycling bins, bags for the bins, teaching resources, and students learn about the environmental benefits of their efforts to encourage them to continue recycling.
Many students at our school bring beverage containers to school on a daily basis. These and many other containers are recyclable and refundable. A community group collects our recyclables and the money collected goes to charity.
So far this school year, students and staff at Win Ferguson have recycled over 10 740 beverage containers! That is equivalent to the weight of 35 Stanely Cups! Way to go Win Ferguson!
Our February Newsletter 2014 is now available!

Win Ferguson Community School has a tradition of excellence in all of its programming. Our dedicated staff works diligently to ensure the needs of all students are met. This is a tradition we are extremely proud of. In addition to an exemplary staff and student body, we are fortunate to have a committed group of outstanding parents and community members who support our school programs and activities.
