Mind Over Matter

The 2014 school year is coming to a close and our students (and maybe some of the staff) are counting down the days to Christmas break.  I find that at this time of year, I often like to look back and reflect on the accomplishments and challenges that I have faced throughout the year. Without doubt, my greatest accomplishment of 2014 was running the Okanagan Half Marathon.  In January, a friend of mine proposed the idea that we run the half marathon together. My initial reaction was a definite no, because the only real running I did on a regular basis was running upstairs to the pantry to get another bag of Cheezies. Well, 10 months later it was race day. I had trained long and hard, and when I think back on that day I still feel surprised that I actually ran that far.  The lesson for me was that when you put your mind to it and work hard, anything is possible, even what you thought was impossible. 

Have a great last week of school everyone and I will see you in 2015.

School Christmas Wreath

Our school submitted a special Christmas wreath that we titled "High Five to Christmas". Our students worked hard together to build something beautiful to share with our community during the holiday season. The wreath is now located at the Civic Center in Leduc until January 5th. Stop by and check it out!
Thanks Mrs. Dukeshire for leading this project!
