School Mission Statement
"Hedges School is committed to providing students with opportunities to develop personally, socially, academically in a safe environment and to become life long learners."
Students at Hedges will develop good character, self-respect, and pride in themselves and their work. They will be good citizens by respecting and getting along with others. They will have opportunities to develop their creative abilities and increase their desire for lifelong learning. All students have the right to an education. For their future success they will learn basic skills and facts, how to find information and how to use information.
Please be advised that with the cold winter weather upon us, there exists the possibility of school buses being canceled for safety reasons. In the event of extremely cold weather (a wind chill hazard of -45Â°C or greater) buses will be canceled and students will need alternate transportation.
The School Division will contact all parents to advise them of bus cancellations. The news media is also alerted to cancellations and Division websites are updated to reflect any announcements.
Please ensure that the school is notified if your phone number changes so that we will be able to contact you.

At Hedges we care about the environment. Here are some things we are doing:
- Collecting drink pouches which are sent to Terracycle. Terracycle is a company which turns our trash into treasures.
- Collecting aluminum can tabs which are donated to Tabs for Wheelchairs.
- Collecting plastic shopping bags which are donated to the City of Winnipeg and turned into frisbees.
- 2 community clean ups a year.
- Composting in our staff and student lunchrooms.
- Recycle cans, bottles and paper products in all of our rooms.
- Hold 2 contests a year to promote recycling, reducing and reusing in our lunchrooms.
- Frequent litter pick up on our school grounds.
Congrats to Hedges Middle School for achieving Awareness Level from Manitoba Education for their sustainable development practices.
