Forestburg School is an excellent example of what partners in a community can achieve when working together for our youth. My recent experience with the 2016-2017 awards program exemplifies what parents, teachers, support staff, and volunteers can do when they come together to provide the best educational experiences a rural education system can provide. The educational successes that our students are experiencing is a direct result of teachers, with the support of parents and guardians, engaging students with the Alberta Program of Studies. Forestburg School parents and families provide a strong voice for education and take interest in their childrens' educational life. Our educational community does an excellent job of not only trying to educate our children academically, but also in helping them to mature and grow socially and emotionally in inclusive classrooms. Success comes from intentionally focusing on one's goals, being perseverant, and consistently providing additional supports as they are required. Thank-you for welcoming me into your community and I look forward to seeing what we can achieve together!
