Elk Island Public Schools (EIPS) has partnered with Alberta Education and The Learning Bar (www.thelearningbar.com) to survey students regarding their level of engagement in learning, student wellness, classroom(s) and school climate. During February grades 7 through 12 students have completed a survey, entitled Our SCHOOL|TTFM, which has the Accountability Pillar survey questions included in it. As an annual check up on the education system, Alberta Education conducts surveys of students to gather information on the quality of education provided by Alberta school authorities and their schools. The results are provided to school authorities to inform the development of their three-year education plans, Annual Education Results Report, and to evaluate the performance on Accountability Pillar survey measures. Parents and guardians of students in grades 4, 7, and 10 will also be receiving a survey in the mail. The surveys are anonymous and we highly encourage you to participate. The results of the survey will be provided to EIPS in May 2016, which will then be shared with our families and school communities next fall in the Division’s Annual Education Results Report. If you have any questions about the OurSCHOOL|TTFM survey, please contact Lonnie Hicks, lonnie.hicks@eips.ca or 780-467-2295. For more information about Alberta Education’s Accountability Pillar survey, please contact Keith Bowen, the director at Alberta Education’s System Assurance Branch, at keith.bowen@gov.ab.ca or 780-422-4750 (or toll-free at 310-000).

Electronic Recycling

Knights care about our environment!  Every day, thousands of electric and electronic devices are thrown in the garbage, filling landfills and wasting an opportunity to recycle components. Clover Bar Junior High School is pleased to participate in the Alberta E-Waste Challenge.  Starting on Monday, May 2, E-Waste collection bins will be located near the front of our school alongside the tennis courts.  We are collecting virtually any electronic device that has a battery or a plug!  Bring your defective TVs, VCRs, Printers, Computers, Mixers, and power tools.  For a complete list of items for the collection, go to www.cloverbar.ca.  Funds raised from the Clover Bar collection will be used to support the purchase of a water bottle filling station for our school, reducing our consumption of plastic water bottles.
