Gr.5/6 Outdoor School

Every year students at Alberta Conference schools get to enjoy a few days of learning in the beautiful classroom of the natural world. Outdoor School is again being held at Foothills Camp from May 27 to 30.

Students will learn according to the regular curriculum, but through activities specifically designed to be hands-on, experiential, and taking full advantage of the natural environment. They will also take part in activities that will help them make new friends, bond with current friends, and strengthen their relationship with God.

In order to attend, please fill out the consent/acknowledgment of risk form below. You can also download the handbook to see the packing list, and other preparations you need to make before heading to Outdoor School. (You don’t need to print it – a copy will be provided for you when you arrive).

Butterfly Effect – recap

On Tuesday, we had over 50 students and staff participate in the Butterfly Effect program presented by COME2LIFE – an organization dedicated to helping young people engage in conversation about emotional health so they can find help, hope, and healing. Pastor Brad Dahr and Susan (one of our students) led us through the session.

We were really blessed by their presentation, and were all reminded that we all have experienced negative emotions in our lives, such as rejection and loneliness, failure, trauma and loss, and shame. But we are not alone – others have also had the same experiences – and help is available. We learned some ways to help ourselves get through negative experiences, and COME2LIFE is also there to help – they would love for you to reach out if you need to talk to someone confidentially.

Staffing Updates for Fall 2019

We are pleased to announce that in the fall of 2019, Mina Desjardins will be our vice-principal. We appreciate her dedication to our students and look forward to her leadership. She will be replacing Chris Dubyna, who has accepted the position of Principal at College Heights Christian School in Lacombe. We have appreciated Mr. Dubyna’s leadership and service to PACeS and we wish him the best in his new adventure!

Stewardship Challenge

Recently the #trashtag challenge has been sweeping the internet.

As God created us to be stewards of our planet, we’d like to challenge PACeS students to take on the stewardship or #trashtag challenge.
