"Bikey Likes It!"

Rory J. Koopmans, B. Admin., Capilano Public Library Terminal #V, Edmonton, Alberta

July XIth, MMXVIII

Hon. Dave Eggen, B. Ed., MLA, Minister of Education, New Democratic, Edmonton-Calder

Dear Dave:

I really love this initiative by Edmonton Public Library (EPL) to get people to bicycle to various library branches & visit interesting literary places along the way. A truly great concept as it is promoting both physical & cognitive stimulation of the body & mind simultaneously. Which of course is truly good for the human spirit!

Biked Hiked,

Historic Edmonton Week

Rory J. Koopmans, B. Admin., Clareview Public Library Terminal #VIII, Edmonton, Alberta

July VIIth, MMXVIII

Hon. Dave Eggen, B. Ed., MLA, Minister of Education, New Democratic, Edmonton-Calder

Dear Dave:

I am in Northeast Edmonton today s the Edmonton & District Historical Society wraps up another Historic Edmonton Week, students need to look at how the farming communities to the northeast played a big part in Edmonton's growth & development. Also, how Edmonton helped served as a feeder community for the development, trade, & commercial ability for many farmers & businesses to go about their trade & conduct commerce (thus supporting their families.) Many tradespeople worked out of the ne (& other areas of the city) & their contributions in the past are now still influencing how we shape Edmonton & its surrounding area for the future.

Students Should Drop By Queen Alexandra School To Learn More,

June XXXth, MMXVIII

Hon. Dave Eggen, B. Ed., MLA, Minister of Education, New Democratic, Edmonton-Calder

Dear Dave:

For three-quarters of a century & on what would have been her 75th birthday today, Mrs. June C. Koopmans, B. Ed., Classics Illustrated Comics superfan (with my Grandpa Archie) has been our guide, our protector, & our friend! Today marks mom's last birthday appearance for Executive Dissertations. As much as I want to keep having her show off her Afton Elementary School Grade II (2) lesson plans, it is time to let her spirit rest & know that with tea & birthday cake in her memory today that she did one hell of a great job with her time on Earth. Although limited to 68 years, the point is she was here, fighting for students rights to the end!


PLANS

Wednesday, March 1st, 1972:

Gym: Walking, running, sprinting.
Reading: bbd ex on roots, vowels, "oo", "can't."
                (have students tell stories of airplane & bus trips using vowels as the main emphasis.)
           ------
Arithmetic: text P. 134.
Spelling: #23C.
Storytime: Students acting out stories with vowels in groups.

Lunch: Take an injured student from Grade 3 to school nurse before heading to teachers lounge for lunch as his teacher had a family emergency & had to leave school property.

Printing: "Ff", "Gg", "Hh","Ii","Jj."
Language Arts: Add consonants & vowels learned together so as to help students memory recall for trip stories.
           ------
Enterprise: Students suggest making cardboard & paper cutouts of themselves on their trips. Great as it gets their visual memory cognition going in full gear!

Read It Then Lived It!

Rory J. Koopmans, B. Admin., #23, 9731-174 Street, Edmonton, Alberta T5T 6G4

June XXIIIrd, MMXVIII

Hon. Dave Eggen, B. Ed., MLA, Minister of Education, New Democratic, Edmonton-Calder

Dear Dave:

This book "MacArthur's Undercover War" is quite brilliant. It shows students of military history & military historians how gathering intelligence & research was just as important in winning battles for U. S. Army General MacArthur & the Allies in the Pacific Rim & Asian theatres of battle.

Well Done & Well Organized,

Rory

Tim Horton Was A Great Hockey Player!

Rory J. Koopmans, B. Admin., 170 Street & 111 Avenue Tim Hortons Courtesy Wifi, Edmonton, Alberta

June XVIth, MMXVIII

Hon. Dave Eggen, B. Ed., MLA, Minister of Education, New Democratic, Edmonton-Calder

Dear Dave:

Here at this Tim Hortons where I used to work, a few of the staff cleaning up the garbage & recycling area have expressed frustration that customers are tossing garbage in the recycling & vice versa. Thus preventing the recycling from being recycled. Students who visit Timmy's with their family members that if they want to reduce their environmental impact, they should properly separate items. Franchise locations use the bottle/can/container monies to pay for wages, upkeep, as well as supplies so people doing this volunteer separation helps keep restaurant costs down, many of which are struggling due to shitty Alberta NDP minimum wage laws & other unnecessary bureaucratic constraints!

Tim Slim,

Rory
