Dear parents,

In my message for March 2017, I would like to send a note of appreciation to our Superintendent Ms. Depeel I would like to take this opportunity to thank Ms. DePeel for her leadership during the last five years. This has been a major time of transition and Ms. DePeel has led us to new heights. She has supported campus administration in ensuring continued high P.A.T. results. As well, she has assisted in increasing the student enrollment cap, allowing more students to attend our school. She has been a great advocate for Almadina and always has positives to share with Alberta Education. Her continuous lobbying on behalf of the school has led to more visibility and our school being highlighted in the media as experts in the field of English language learners. Thank you to Ms. DePeel. We will miss you and wish you the best in your next endeavour.

Additionally, I would like to inform you that Saturday School has commenced, and we are proud to announce that we have over 140 students attending to benefit from this opportunity that will provide them with extra supports that will, in turn, better prepare students for success on their upcoming provincial achievement tests (P.A.T).

Finally, I would like to thank all parents and staff for their continuous efforts for yet another successful year and for years to come. My best regards to all. Spring Break A reminder that school will be
