After a three-year hiatus the wait is over for fans of The Angelic Letters series with a release of the sixth installment earlier this spring and news that the series will now be seven books.

The halls of Schuler School were packed June 24 in the afternoon as former students and staff and community members gathered to take one last look at the current building which is set for demolition in a few months.

For the second year in a row, a Prairie Rose School Division (PRSD) school earned top prize in the Healthy School Cup challenge.

The timeline is unknown for a provincial inspection of the operations of the Village of Warner, since the Request For Proposals (RFP) for that work has closed with no tender submissions.

A Prairie Rose School Division (PRSD) student will  take a trip of a lifetime after being chosen one of 14 students to visit key First and Second World Wars historic sites throughout Europe.

Registration is underway for the 14th annual Southern Alberta Grazing School for Women. As in past years, organizers are expecting the 40 spots to fill up quickly.

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.”
