Education Week 2019: May 6 to May 10
Education Week takes place May 6 to May 10. Throughout the week, students and staff from ALH, are showcasing and celebrating the role education plays in shaping the future of our province. Led by the Alberta Teachers' Association and Alberta Education, the annual event is celebrated by school communities province-wide with activities focused around the importance of education.
Today, more than ever, ALH, our teachers and schools throughout Elk Island Public Schools, are focused on providing students with optimal learning opportunities. As a result, students are honing a broad range of learning experiences that go beyond the core subjects of math, language arts, science and social studies. They’re becoming lifelong learners and developing valuable skills such as ingenuity, creativity, critical thinking and citizenship. Education Week celebrates this learning journey. To mark the week, ALH has a number of activities planned—all aimed at demonstrating the outstanding learning taking place in our school. Some of these include:
- Used book sale. 4 books for a dollar, plus one free.
- Door decorating contest
- Lighthouse Cookie Sale - $1.00 (Tuesday, May 7)
- Multicultural Day (Wednesday, May 8)
- Wrap up assembly (Friday, May 10th)
We encourage all of you to join us at these events to help us celebrate Education Week 2019.
