Message from the principal

Good morning

Last week, Mrs. Wendy Van Zyl asked to be relieved of her position as teacher in Altario School as her credentials are taking longer than expected to be granted by Alberta Education. She did not feel that is would be fair for her students to have to wait several weeks or even months with substitute teachers until she was able to teach. This was, of course, disappointing news as we were very excited to have her join our team. She does hope to be a substitute teacher as soon as her credentials are approved.
Fortunately, Miss Renee Hicks accepted this position in our school. By the time school starts she will be Mrs. Gould. Some students may remember Miss Hicks as she has substituted in our school in the past. Miss Hicks is originally from the Millarville areas and is a graduate of the University of Lethbridge. We welcome her to our team.
School is quickly approaching, and we are very grateful to have received a very qualified candidate to take Mrs. Van Zyl's place.
Wishing everyone enjoyable final weeks of holidays,
Kevin Van Lagen
