Annual Education Results Report
Trustees and representatives of St. Paul Education recently attended the Rural Education Symposium in Canmore, Alberta. This was an excellent opportunity to share best practices, discuss partnerships, dialogue, and celebrate the diversity of education in rural Alberta. St. Paul Education also presented a number of sessions at this symposium. Pictured below is Terra-Lee Gratton of St. Paul Elementary who shared engaging ways students can connect and collaborate with other students both in the Division and on a global scale.
The week of March 9-13 is Substitute Teacher Appreciation Week. Although their role may be different from regular teachers, substitute teachers are an important part of our students' education. We would like to take this opportunity to thank our substitute teachers for everything they do. We could not do without them!
