Please remember to include a copy of your child's birth certificate & your legal land location (ie: NW 35 46 7 W5) when you return your registration package.
Breakfast Program - Research shows that ultimate learning potential occurs when students are not hungry. Apples, oranges, granola bars & cereal bars will be available to students who need that extra little 'pick-me-up' to get them through morning classes. Donations of the above items or cash donations would be greatly appreciated. For more information, please contact Mrs. Leeder or Ms. Wynia @ 780-388-3881. Thank you to Carla Mackinaw for her donation of granola bars to the Breakfast Program.
Music Program Fundraiser - Our sound system is very old & tired & is in dire need of replacement. A new system will cost about $12,000.

If you are able to help, any donations would be greatly appreciated. For more information, please contact Mrs. Borzel at 780-388-3881. Thank you to Lincoln County Oilfield Services Ltd. for their generous donation to go towards a new sound system & thank you to Emma Kellgren for her donation to the Music Program.
