Merry Christmas and Happy New Year
Each year as Christmas approaches, I reflect upon the blessings of the year. I am humbled by the continuous support and generosity afforded to our students. I am reminded, regularly, that we live in a community that believes in our youth and their ability to be amazing when provided proper supports. With our inaugural graduation ceremony in 2018, we hosted a beautiful ceremony and supper fully sponsored by various business and community members. We provide meals on a daily basis thanks to community support. Our students have attended Red Deer Rebels games, learned how to prepare healthy, nutritious and economical meals, and participated in various co-curricular activities all because of this amazing community in which we exist.
Thank you, Rocky Mountain House and surrounding communities, for your support. May the blessings of this season be yours today and throughout the coming year.
Learning Commons Fun!
We are blessed to have Mrs. Allen spending a bit of time in our school this year. As a Learning Commons Facilitator she has much to offer our students. Thursday, September 27 had our junior high students engaged in a rousing blow dart competition. Due to the fun had, senior high students and even a couple of staff decided to join in. Chaya was the amazing winner with the only bullseye blown today.
Mrs. Allen prepares a fun and engaging activity for our students on a monthly basis. We are thrilled to have her on our team to offer best practice from a Learning Commons perspective as well as provide a bit more fun for our students.
Beginning on August 30, please call the school (403-844-2355) to set up an intake appointment. On average, expect to spend an hour at the school. We will dedicate the first week of September from 10:00am - 2:00pm to enroll our students. Additionally, we will host two intake evenings for those unable to make a day appointment; they will be Tuesday, September 11 and Wednesday, September 19 running from 4:00 - 7:00pm.

Fun Fit Friday
March 23, 2018
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
