Congratulations to Mrs. Nicholauson and her students at Henry G. Izatt Middle School! The Student Technology Leaders from Henry G. Izatt Middle School have presented at nine schools and five administrative meetings in Pembina Trails and at other venues in the city. This team of students have developed understanding, skill and an ability to articulate “beyond their years” as they have embraced the opportunity to prepare and present on current topics - personal technology devices, technical support, digital citizenship, useful applications, inquiry based learning.
Their intention, to grow learning capacity, to “push the boundaries of education” has led to this proposal to plan and facilitate a one day student workshop (a Student EdCamp) in the Pembina Trails School Division, to develop the dialogue between students and educators to productively impact program delivery in this 21st century.
Values in Action

Congratulations to Mr. Cueto and his students at Strathcona Elementary School. They celebrate student successes through the 7 universal values of courage, humility, honesty, love, wisdom, respect and truth. At Strathcona, they value and focus on students to exemplify examples of that particular value and teachers acknowledge two students in their class in a whole school assembly.
The centre piece of their assembly is a student-produced film that gives the entire school community examples of that value. Students at Strathcona School also produce videos in different subject areas to represent their understanding of curriculum outcomes.
