As we wrap up another school year, I find myself reflecting. 2021-22 proved to be a bit of a roller coaster as we dealt with a variety of fluctuations in health regulations. But despite living in a constantly shifting world, I know I will look back on memories from the past 10 months and smile. I hope that each and every one of you can and will do the same. Our concerts and assemblies, sporting events and cultural events, welcoming new students, celebrations of student successes through our Eagle awards, giving back to our community through fundraisers and donations, as well as all of the memories of the citizenship and learning that took place played a part to make this year one worth celebrating!

I’d like to extend a special thank you to those who made all of these great things happen. Firstly, thank you to the parents who trusted us with your precious children and those who volunteered in our building in various roles. Thank you to our staff who embraced the changes as they occurred and provided the best education they could for our students. Thank you to our students who came to school ready to learn with smiles on their faces. To everyone in our school community, thank you for your commitment to supporting every student at E.E.Oliver. The collaboration of our community fosters a positive school culture where students are able to learn and also goes a long way to making EEO a great school.

As we enter the summer months, I wish you good health and sunshine! I look forward to meeting and working with you again in the Fall. If we can be of assistance please do not hesitate to contact us.

Bugs, bugs, bugs

The Grade Two's have spent the last month learning about insects and other interesting creatures. On June 17th 2F and 2L went to George Lake for a bug hunt. While there, they went on a hike through the wilderness, and hunted for bugs on land and along the water's edge. Many ants, spiders, beetles, snails and even leeches were found!

National Indigenous Peoples Day

June 21 is Indigenous Peoples Day in Canada. To celebrate and learn more about Canada's Indigenous cultures, our students got to partake in a wide selection of activities. The best bit? Indigenous games!! Thank you to Ms. Shaw, Mrs. Buck and Ms. Krol for all your help to make our event a huge success.

From the Superintendent

As we approach the end of the 2021-2022 school year, I would like to take this opportunity to

thank our students, parents, staff, and community members for their contributions to education

within our division. It has been an interesting year full of positive changes, forward movement,

and consistent teamwork, and we can’t thank you enough for your dedication to PRSD.

To our students, your resiliency, adaptation, and devotion to your studies has been inspiring,

and your hard work has been recognized by all. You have persevered and completed another

year of your education, despite difficult circumstances, and we are extremely proud of you. You

have made a positive impact within your schools, communities, and society.

I want to wish our graduates all the best in their future endeavors, as I know they will continue to

make PRSD proud after graduation. I am very humbled by the countless examples of collective

and personal accomplishments, growth, school, and community spirit demonstrated by them

during this school year.

I would also like to extend a huge thank you to our parents, guardians, and family members for

their outstanding involvement over the past 10 months. Watching you come together to provide

support, encouragement and assistance to our students, staff and schools has been incredible. I

recognize and appreciate the time, sacrifice, and efforts you have and are still making to PRSD.

To our staff, we couldn’t have done this without you. Thank you. You continue to rise to the

occasion in your dedication and flexibility in ensuring students are cared for. Your resiliency,

creativity, and adaptability are greatly appreciated. The ways in which our staff throughout the

division are collaborating and supporting one another is a true example of our mission

statement, “Learning together, success for all.” Every role in the division has a direct impact on

student learning and success and I am so grateful for the care and guidance that I see

demonstrated every day within the division.

Thank you to our community members and organizations. We are very thankful for your

contributions and participation in local education. Your involvement shows our students the

importance of teamwork and community spirit – which are imperative attributes that will serve

them all their lives. We are very appreciative of your time spent volunteering, providing input,

advocating, and forming partnerships throughout our school division. Your support has made a

world of difference.

Lastly, I would like to extend my deepest gratitude to all our school communities for their

commitment to PRSD. You have played a substantial role in education and have positively

impacted each and every person you have crossed paths with. I want to wish everyone a safe,

fun, and fulfilling summer break ahead, and I look forward to seeing familiar faces in the fall!

Thank you all for an incredible year!
