Thank you to Liz Gerow and Fern Iwaskow!

Fern and Liz came a few weeks ago to work with junior high students with creating pottery items and delivered the final projects today. They are simply amazing and we are so very grateful for their time and willingness to share their talents with our students.

Thank you County of Grande Prairie for Sponsoring Our Busing to Swimming Lessons!

The beauty of our small rural school!

Big picture
Students enjoy some outside time every morning before school begins. Their favourite activity as of late is to stand on top of the snow hill pumping their arms at passing trucks begging them to honk their horns for them. Hearing the cheers of joy when they get the thunderous honks should remind us all of the great fortune we have to live and go to school in our small rural school.

Watch for your Alberta Education Assurance survey code in your mail

The Alberta Education Assurance (AEA) survey gathers feedback on the quality of education provided by school authorities and their schools. Schools and school authorities use this information to understand how they are doing and plan for the future.

Who gets a survey

The AEA survey is sent to parents or guardians of students in Grades 4, 7 and 10. In schools with fewer than 120 students in Grades 4 to 12 and most charter and private schools, survey are sent to parents or guardians of students in Grades 4 and above.

Teachers and students complete the survey online at school.

Take the survey

Parents or guardians receive a survey invitation package by mail and have the option to complete the survey on paper or online using the provided Random Access Code (RAC). Parents or guardians with more than one student in an eligible grade will receive a separate survey invitation package for each child.

Only parents or guardians of students in participating grades will receive a survey invitation package to complete the survey.

Responding to the survey is voluntary.
