Last Thursday the whole community came together to celebrate our Western Heritage. The Spring Round-up is a perfect example of how our community supports public education. From the generous donations from families and businesses for our raffles and silent auction items to the awesome turn out, it was a huge success. Your time, donations and purchases helped to raise over $9000 for the Society for Millarville School Fundraising.
I was almost brought to tears when the 50/50 draw winnings were donated back to the school in support of our learning programs. We are humbled and honoured by everyone’s effort and support. Thank-you from the bottom of our hearts!
As we reflect on this success, we would also like to share the success of a long time educator here at MCS. Mrs. Pam Irving has taught in Millarville almost her entire career and is retiring at the end of this month after 20 years here as a teacher and Learning Coach. Her dedication to the students in this school has helped many become who they are today and she will be sorely missed. We will be holding a celebration on May 29th and inviting Pam back to say her good-byes. Please watch for more information about this celebration.
Ms. Karli Alm, most recently from Turner Valley School, will be joining MCS’s team as our new Learning Coach. Please give her a warm MCS welcome after Spring Break!
