This past week St. Paul Education Schools celebrated Education Week, an annual event which provides students, teachers and communities an opportunity to celebrate education and its importance to society. In addition to their regular lessons, students from all schools participated in a variety of special events. Students at Glen Avon School were treated to two guest readers during the week. Town of St. Paul mayor Maureen Miller shared a story with a large group of students, as did the Town of St. Paul Fire Department chief Trevor Kotowich. At the St. Paul Alternate Education Centre, students completed an art project with artist in residence Missy Finlay. In Two Hills School, the students were treated to a performance from Metis Fiddler Brianna Lizotte, who is a visiting artist with the Music Alive Program. St. Paul Elementary School's grade five students received an orientation and tour at Racette School, where they will begin junior high next year. Other schools celebrated by having their students participate in collaborative projects, games and special activities during the week.
