The Great Schools Of Ward G-Avonmore School
October XIth, MMXV
Hon. Dave Eggen, B. Ed., MLA, Minister of Education, New Democratic, Edmonton-Calder
We have a rather solid performer here in Avonmore Elementary-Junior High School. We can give thanks that Principal Lil Rueck & her amazing academic team have a huge focus on healthy physical activities for Avonmore students. Grades Kindergarten through nine are given soccer, rugby, volleyball, & pep rally initiatives among others. This healthy physical philosophy only serves to sharpen the cognition levels of students in the classrooms!
- Avonmore is huge in the promotion of its School Safety Patrols. This is wonderful because if students & family & visitors are safe, they'll be more relaxed & thus able to concentrate on their studies.
- The Nellie McClung Program at Avonmore lets students discover their hidden talents & learn to build relationships & friendships that will help them in the future. Plus its "all girls" Junior High focus lets young ladies feel secure in the knowledge that they are equal to men in every way! A great idea indeed for a program!
- Avonmore staff are encouraged to teach the students to become ethical & engaged learners! This wonderful philosophy will make students of Avonmore valued & productive members of society throughout their lives!
