School Council Meeting - Calendar Consultation
Dear Parents and Guardians,
Pigeon Lake Regional School is engaged in the High School Redesign project, which we are pleased to report, is having a significant positive impact on student learning. Our project focuses on providing a student centered instructional environment which is flexible and responsive to our students and staff. As we have undertaken this project with measurable early success, a roadblock that has emerged is the lack of collaborative time available for our teachers to discuss curricular opportunities. The potential of a High School Redesign Calendar that provides collaboration days for our school is a natural evolution.
On Tuesday December 16th, Pigeon Lake Regional School made a request to Wetaskiwin Regional Public Schools, to start a consultation process with our staff, students, parents, and community members pertaining to the development of a High School Redesign Pilot Calendar. Our school board granted permission to research an alternative calendar that strengthens our High School Redesign initiatives.
On Monday, January 26th, we are inviting our parents/guardians to attend our School Council Meeting to provide input towards the creation of a separate school calendar. Upon gathering input from our parent, student and staff it is our intention to present to the Board our findings pertaining to the development of a High School Redesign Pilot Calendar for the 2015 - 2016 school year.
If you are unable to attend this meeting but would like to be involved in this process, please contact the school and all information can be forwarded to you electronically. I thank you in advance for your support as we work together to create a school that focuses on student achievement and ensures all students are given the opportunity to succeed.

Reviews Are In!!
Last night's performance of The Wizard of Oz, was stunning.
The cast brought the characters to life, as Dorothy and Toto embarked on a journey to a new land, met interesting friends along the way and defeated the wicked witch. The audience was moved from singing along, to laughter, to a resounding "AWWW" when the Tinman's heart was breaking.
Congratulations to the entire cast on a terrific performance!
A great BIG thank you to Mrs. Hetlinger and Mr. Heggerud for all of their time and expertise that went into this production.
Thank you to all who volunteered their time and to those who donated to the silent auction, you helped make this night a success.
I for one will be waiting to see what will come next year!
