About The School

Foothills School Division (FSD) received Alberta Education approval December 2015, for a new K-9 school, at 21 Chinook Arch Way (west 32nd Street), Okotoks Community Campus.  The school will have a student population of 700 students on opening with 900 students at full build out. The land was purchased from the Wedderburn family and land title was transferred to the Town of Okotoks on September 2, 2016.  The Town of Okotoks completed site servicing in 2017 with the build of the campus road and servicing to the property line for a 5.4 acre school site adjacent to a 5.3 acre recreation field to the west.  FSD, in partnership with Alberta Infrastructure and prime consultant Group2, completed site and building design fall 2017.

 

 

School Name: Meadow Ridge School
Location: 21 Chinook Arch Way, Okotoks Community Campus – 32nd Street North
Budget: Approximately $20 million
Open to Students: Planned September 2019
Grades: K-9 students
Naming of the School: Naming Committee first meeting January 2018.  FSD Board of Trustee approval April 2018.
Attendance Boundary Review: Spring 2019
Project Management: Alberta Infrastructure
Prime Consultant: Group2 Architecture Interior Design Ltd.
General Contractor: Graham Construction LLP.  Commencing March 2018. 

 

   

 

 

Attendance Area Boundary

FSD selects attendance areas that allow as many students as possible to attend a school close to home.  We do our best to keep families and communities together.  Careful consideration is given to ensure the school doesn’t fill up too quickly while a community is still growing.  The school will carefully manage enrolment to make sure there’s room for new students who move into the school’s attendance area.  

Learn more about our 2019/20 school year attendance boundaries on our Boundary webpage.

 

 

School Naming

On Wednesday September 19, 2018, the Board of Trustees approved "Meadow Ridge School".  The name was chosen in reflection to the wetlands west and north of the school, a future outdoor learning space for students.  Existing property setbacks ensure this natural area will remain to provide an environmental legacy.

FSD worked with our naming committee to determine a school name for the new K-9 School, 21 Chinook Arch Way (west 32nd Street), Okotoks Community Campus.  As per FSD Administrative Procedure 541, a committee has been formed with members from each representative group of students, parents, local teaching staff, school administration and the community at large.  This committee made a recommendation to FSD Board of Trustees regarding the school name, with final approval by the Board of Trustees.

 

 

Registration

Registration is now open.  Families are encouraged to visit any Okotoks school to enroll.  You must bring:

  1. Your child’s proof of age and legal name (birth certificate or passport)

  2. Your proof of your address (driver’s licence, municipal/federal correspondence, financial/residential documents or a utility bill)

 

 

School Principal

Foothills School Division is pleased to announce Mrs. Rebecca Forchuk as the inaugural Principal of our newest K-9 school in Okotoks opening in September 2019.

Mrs. Forchuk earned her Bachelor of Education degree from the University of Lethbridge. In 2011 she completed her Masters of Education (School Administration) degree from the University of Gonzaga.

Rebecca began her teaching career with Northern Gateway School Division at the middle school where she gained experience in diverse grade levels and subject areas.   She joined the Foothills family in 2006 as a teacher and Instructional Coach at École Okotoks Junior High School.   In 2009, Rebecca embarked on her administrative career as a Vice-Principal at C. Ian McLaren School before transferring to Red Deer Lake School as the Vice-Principal.   Since 2012, Rebecca has been the Director of Staff Development where she supports Teacher professional learning, Support Staff development and Administrator learning to build capacity of all staff to effectively meet the Provincial goals of education in all FSD schools. Her strong understanding of local, provincial and international systems will serve the students and families of FSD’s newest school well.

As a student-centered leader, Rebecca has nurtured collaborative learning cultures that are safe, caring and inclusive which focus on meaningful learning opportunities that engage all students.  Rebecca collects information from her communities, listens carefully and considers all voices when designing next steps for learning.  Rebecca believes “all kids can learn and it is our responsibility to ensure all kids do learn”.  Indeed, students, staff, families and the broader school community can expect Rebecca to undertake fulsome community engagement as she plans for a successful opening and collaboratively cultivates a clear vision for learning in our newest school.

Assistant Superintendent Allen Davidson offers that “Rebecca Forchuk is a leader who has built a high level of trust with staff across our school system. We will definitely miss her leadership on our system team. At the same time, the students and families who attend our new school community will benefit from her breadth of knowledge, innovation, and relentless focus on ensuring every student gets what they need and is successful. We look forward to collaborating with Rebecca and all of our Okotoks Principals as we engage our entire Okotoks school community in bringing our new school into the FSD Family.”
