BlendED Conference

While PACeS students are enjoying a couple of days off (or maybe even  working  on homework!) the teachers have been studying and learning at the BlendED 2019 conference. We’ve been learning lots, and working together on new ways we can help our students learn and grow.

Have a great Sabbath, and we’ll see you on Monday!

On November 29, The PACeS PAC is inviting you to join them to do a tour of the Legislature Building in Edmonton.  The tour begins at 9:00 am and will be about 1 hour long.  After the tour there are optional activities to do on our own.
