RES 2019 Christmas Concert
Time: 12:30 pm

The 2019 Christmas Concert will on Wednesday, December 18th at the Peter Lougheed Community Centre starting at 12:30 pm; doors are unlocked at 12 noon. Audience members will only be allowed through the main entrance of the Community Centre as all other entrances will be used by our Staff to bring students into the Community Centre.

Students will be brought into the auditorium when their class is ready to perform. All students will remain at the school for regular classes until the dismissal time of 3:11 pm.

We would ask that parents make arrangements to stay for the entire Concert. It is very disheartening for the performers towards the end of the concert to a half empty auditorium.

Science in Motion Residency

On April 15th and 16th RES classes  will be participating in a one hour, hands on,  program delivered by a scientist visiting from TELUS World of Science Edmonton with the “Science in Motion” program.

“Science in Motion” is a TELUS World of Science - Edmonton exclusive School Program.  It brings exciting science presentations to rural communities. Through experiments, demonstrations and hands-on activities, they make science fun, dynamic and easy to understand. Science in Motion programs are a valuable resource because it meets learner objectives set out by the Alberta Science Curriculum making them a valuable resource for schools.”   

These presentations are made possible through the supplemental fee that each student pays—without this fee it would not be possible to host these events at our school.
