Brain walk

We participated on a Brain Walk at our school through the Central Alberta Brain Injury Society. This interactive walk provided an opportunity to learn about the brain, what happens when it is injured as well as brain injury prevention.

Field Trip

Thank you everyone who has volunteered for our field trip. We currently have 4 parents who have signed up to volunteer and would love to have more. If you wish to come please remember that we will need a current criminal record check. Because you will be volunteering our school can write a letter for you to waive the criminal record check fee. However, you will need to give me your name that you will be supervising and come pick this letter up from the classroom. The office will not print this unless it is sent by the teacher. The sooner you send me and email that you would like to come, the sooner we can print the letter as criminal record checks can take some time to be completed. Please note that we need a new one on file each year.

Payment online will be available on May 31st! :)
