As part of our school's physical activity plans, students enjoyed time sliding this afternoon.  We were gifted with a couple of inches of fresh snow last night so that made today's event a great deal of fun.  Junior and senior high students as well as some staff enjoyed the outing in the brilliant sunshine.

Thank you Ta 'Otha

Our students were thrilled to take part in Ta 'Otha School's Cultural Days where they were able to participate in drum making, beading, snowshoeing, and ice fishing among other wonderful learning activities.  We would like to thank everyone for welcoming us and sharing these days with us.

Merry Christmas!

Each year as I write my family’s annual Christmas letter, I reflect on the year and the many blessings experienced in the past 12 months.  This year, more than ever, I have so much for which to be grateful.  As in years past, the Next to New continues to support our students through healthy and nutritious foods in addition to our onsite foods program.  This year Glamour Studio joined our “food family” as did our Rocky Co-op who generously donated turkey and cooked it for our Christmas feast as well as provided treat bags for our students. 

As Visions West moves towards hosting its inaugural graduation ceremony, our community has joined forces to ensure our students will benefit from a beautiful ceremony with minimal cost to each participant.  I would be remiss if I did not list the amazing organizations who have already provided sponsorship for Grad 2018: Challand Pipeline Ltd, Col Lar Construction, DEL Construction, Rainbow Ford Sales, Rocky Credit Union, Rocky Mountain House Co-op, and Rocky Mountain Dodge Chrysler Jeep.

Thank you to everyone who supported our Norwex and Farm to Schools fundraisers.  Thank you to the Anderson, French, Hansen, Matheson, and Unwin families for their generous donations.  Thank you to the incredible staff at Visions who make everyday fulfilling with their countless acts of kindness and generosity.

It has been said before that it takes a village to raise a child.  I am so proud to be a part of Rocky Mountain House; our community is incredibly generous in its support of our students.  We honestly would not have this much success were it not for the village coming together.

As 2017 draws to a close, I would like to take this opportunity to wish you a very Merry Christmas and blessed New Year!

Terry Fox Run

As part of our Fun and Fit Fridays, Mrs. Croteau and Mrs. Simmelink along with a group of students participated in the Terry Fox run last week.  The weather was beautiful and students and staff enjoyed being out in the sunshine savoring the fabulous fall colours.  Students returned to school in time for lunch with a special treat of homemade buns brought in by one of our parents.  What a marvelous way to end a week of learning!

Cooking for the Crowd!

Now we need to clean up!

For the first time, Visions West students are cooking at school.  In preparation for tomorrow's Terry Fox run, (we want our students to have a hot and tasty meal waiting for them upon completing the course) Alyssa, Darian and Marlee prepared a massive slow cooker full of chili.  We are very much looking forward to sampling their offering!
