November & December 2018
Grasslands Board of Trustees would like to wish everyone a very Merry and Safe Christmas Season. As a board we always enjoy the various Christmas concerts throughout the division.
- The board has been busy in the last few months with a number of trustees representing Grasslands at the Alberta School Boards Association meetings as well as Public School Board Association of Alberta meetings in Edmonton. Being members of these associations allows the board a chance to have a say on what is happening at the provincial level. If you are interested in more information regarding these associations, please check out their websites.

- As winter driving conditions are now upon us please be extra cautious and diligent in watching out for those kids both on the sidewalks & roads and on our school buses.
- Recently a number of trustees had the opportunity to meet with the honorable David Eggen, Minister of Education, in which we were able to describe the context of schooling in Grasslands. We were able to raise awareness for such things as the need for mental health supports, funding and additional programming.
