Advent Concert Information

This year we will be holding our school Advent concert on Wednesday, December 19th. The concert will take place at OLPH church beginning at 6:00 pm. As the concert will be held at the church and this is a holy space, we would kindly ask that you refrain from bringing in food and drinks and treat the space with the reverence required. Ukrainian students are asked to wear Ukrainian shirt and English students are asked to wear Sunday best.

Accountability Pillar Surveys Coming soon!

Just a reminder to parents that in the New Year you will be receiving a letter from Alberta Education. Inside is the Accountability Pillar survey. As part of the Accountability Pillar, Alberta Education surveys teachers, students and their parents. The survey data helps to gather information on the quality of education provided by school authorities and their schools. All parents of students in grade 4, 7, & 10 will be receiving the survey by mail. Students in grades grade 4, 7, & 10 will also be completing a digital survey in school prior to the end of February. Please take a few minutes to complete the survey, as your feedback is important to us. Thank you!
