Increasing deficits in the area of transportation continue to be a concern for officials with Prairie Rose School Division (PRSD) and the board of trustees.
Just how large that deficit is — estimated to be $427,807 in the 2017/18 school year — was discussed at the June 13 regular board meeting when trustees approved the 2017/18 preliminary budget.

Schuler School will end the school year with a special celebration June 24 as a chance to say good-bye to the current building. A new school is under construction in the community which will be occupied by students starting in September. School staff have organized a come-and-go event for June 24 from 2-6 p.m. and are inviting past and present students, teachers, support staff and parents to attend.

Cypress Hills’s peak is at the head of the mountain on the Alberta side and is a reported 1,466 metres (4,810 feet). The highest point in Saskatchewan is apparently 1,392 metres (4,567 feet). Mount Everest in comparison reaches 29,029 feet which is 8,848 metres above sea level.

The Alberta Colony Educators’ Conference hosted by Prairie Rose School Division this year in Medicine Hat May 26-27 was a chance for educators to “Get Inspired.”

Officials with the Newell Foundation are back to the drawing board after more than six years of work and planning. Since early 2011, officials with the management body, which operates two seniors lodges (one in Brooks and one in Bassano) as well as eight self-contained seniors apartments in Bassano, have been working on an innovative rural project for aging in community.

For more than a year a small group of Prairie Rose School Division (PRSD) representatives have been diligently working to plan the upcoming Alberta Colony Educators’ Conference.

Prairie Rose School Division trustees had a good taste of the hands-on learning that is taking place at Seven Persons School.

It’s time to take radon seriously

No one likes “big brother” looking out for our every whim and need, but one area where some additional government regulation could be good is around radon.

Prairie Rose School Division board trustees approved a couple of field trips for students in the division at the May 9 regular meeting.
