Happy Wednesday Everyone! I hope that whatever winter is looking like in your area that you are enjoying it. Yesterday it was cold here in Lacombe but, the sun was shining bright.

  • Today is the first day of the second semester for Gr. 10-12. The schedule is on our homepage, be sure to check it if you need to know when your classes are. We are officially half done the school year. Congratulations to our 3 ladies in Gr. 12! Bethany, Rebekah and Aldana….enjoy your last semester of high school.
  • This week Gr. 7 and 8 are working on speeches in their classes. I’d love to know what each of you have decided to talk about. Leave a comment below and let us know your topic. Good luck as you get ready for them.
  • Gr. 9-12 Report Cards will be sent out tomorrow, you can look for them in your email and regular Canada Post mail.
  • This month I will attending online training to learn more about new versions and upgrades to Blackboard Collaborate. We hope to upgrade in a couple of months.
  • One of our parents saw an interview about this website and passed the info onto me. Check it out, it looks quite good. Thanks for sharing! They were saying that they created it to help children understand the news and the context of the news.  They do not include news stories on violent crime.  Its target audience is grade 2-8.   I had a quick look and it looks like it may be of interest to some of the families.http://teachingkidsnews.com/



Last weekend I was able to attend  the Amy Grant concert at “Breakforth” in Edmonton. I found her concert to be very meaningful. She was purposefully worshiping and came across as very humble and real.  She was not there to perform, she was there to praise God.

One of the songs she sang was “Put a little love in your heart”. Some of the lyrics are below:

I hope when you decide
Kindness will be your guide
Put a little love in your heart

And the world will be a better place
And the world will be a better place
For you and me

Listening to her sing reminded me of the importance of kindness. Take the time to be kind this week. It’s easy…and puts a smile on your face.
