EIPS hosts Drop-In Information Sessions: revised Attendance boundaries
Sherwood Park, AB. — Work is almost complete on establishing the attendance boundaries for the new K-6 school in the Davidson Creek area. The new boundaries will affect elementary schools and junior high schools in Sherwood Park, particularly those in the northeast quadrant.
Based on feedback from parents, students, staff and community members, EIPS has revised its proposed school boundaries for the area and are sharing those recommendations with the community at two drop-in information sessions. Those who attend will have the opportunity to view the school boundaries being purposed, ask questions and speak with representatives from Elk Island Public Schools.
Drop-In Information Sessions: Date: April 19 & April 25 Time: 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. Location: Lakeland Ridge; 101 Crimson Dr., Sherwood Park *free child care provided.
Comments from our Students:
"To be honest, I am completely happy with this school."
"The school is very welcoming and I feel like I could just talk to anyone if I need any type of help".
"What I like about Clover Bar is that there are a lot of really really nice teachers and staff members.The teachers here at clover bar are very understanding and support of the students and will help them in anyway that they can.Also I love coming to school because I love to be with my friends,and sometimes the friends I get to see at school I don't really get to see outside of school because they have [sports or other extra curricular activities]. There are tons of fun activities and trips they provide us with. I think we should have more school assembly's because it's good for us to be all together as a school. We should do more of the grades all being together getting to know each other. I like the dances we have they are very fun and it's a nice break to be able to just go and have some fun with your friends listen to some good music and dance."
EIPS who dedicate countless hours of their time in our schools.

Ministers Your Council:
Alberta Education: Students invited to sit on the Minister’s Youth Council
The province’s education system exists to prepare Alberta students for success and the decisions that affect them need to include their voice. That’s why Alberta Education is inviting Alberta-based students to be part of its Minister’s Youth Council.
The council, which consists of approximately 32 junior high and senior high students with diverse interests, identities, backgrounds and perspectives from all regions of Alberta, meets three times a year to discuss issues relating to education. Those selected will serve a 10-month term beginning in the 2017–2018 school year. Throughout the year, their input will help guide the province’s education initiatives and decisions. In addition to sharing ideas with the Education Minister and Alberta Education, students selected will also have the opportunity to interact with each other outside of these meetings to discuss ideas and upcoming activities. To learn more, or to apply, visit https://education.alberta.ca/student-engagement/minister-s-youth-council. The deadline for applications is May 5, 2017.
