A big THANK YOU to all of our volunteers
On behalf of the Board of Trustees at Elk Island Public Schools (EIPS), please accept our heartfelt thank you to all the volunteers within the Division who help make our schools and programs successful. Whether it’s assisting at an athletic competition, co-ordinating a fundraising event or delicately cutting out poppies for a Remembrance Day celebration, the impact our volunteers have within our school community is profound. It also offers an incredible learning opportunity for our students as it encourages them to mirror that behaviour in their own lives. In recognition of National Volunteer Week, which runs April 23-29, EIPS extends our thanks and celebrates the hundreds of volunteers across EIPS who dedicate countless hours of their time in our schools.

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.
