100 DAYS OF SCHOOL!

We need your input! OLMP Playground Progress

There have been discussions about the lack of activities for students to do outside at OLMP. While we have implemented many creative options a longer term solution needs to be explored. We are in search of parents interested in setting the vision for some new facilities outside at OLMP.


If you are interested in joining this committee please contact:

Kristy Smith at kristys@eics.ab.ca or Lucy Ernst at Lucy.Ernst@albertahealthservices.ca .


Our first meeting will be Tuesday, March 3rd at 6:00 in the OLMP High School Commons.


Food (pizza and veggies) will be provided and childcare is available if you contact us prior to the event. If we can get a group of parents to set the direction for this right away a potential playground build could take place as early as Spring 2021.
