Athletics Lost

The Prairie Land Board of Trustees previewed the documentary ‘Athletics Lost’ that shared stories of Prairie Land student-athletes and the opportunities that were taken away as a result of the Covid pandemic. The video represents all schools throughout the division and students speaking to the disappointment they faced, but the optimism they see in the future. The Board would like to thank the students who participated in the making of the Prairie Land Athletics Lost video. Please click on Athletics Lost to hear their stories.

ASBA 2021 Edwin Parr Award Nominee

Monday, March 29, 2021

(Hanna, Alberta) – The Prairie Land Public School Division Board of Trustees are honoured to nominate Ms. Courtney Fecho for the Alberta School Boards Association, 2021 Edwin Parr Teacher Award. This prestigious distinction has been bestowed upon deserving first year teachers for their outstanding efforts in Alberta since 1964. School boards across the province nominate one exceptional candidate for the Edwin Parr Teacher Award to their ASBA zone committee each year. The successful nominees from each Zone are honoured at the ASBA Fall General Meeting in November.

Ms. Fecho is in her first year at Consort School where she has been assigned ELA 7, Science 7, Science 9, Biology 30 and CTF 8. Courtney is also involved in extra-curricular activities including coaching volleyball and softball.

Courtney’s strength in practice would be her natural ability and intentional commitment to fostering, caring, understanding and professional relationships with her students. Her patience and understanding allow her to be a model of positivity to her students. She both believes and lives the idea that students who are treated with kindness and respect will have enhanced learning.

Ms. Fecho is the epitome of a new teacher who wants to grow and put forward her best self, day in and day out. She engages with other teachers to help better understand her own practice and most importantly, how to reach all students.

With many outstanding beginning teachers in Prairie Land, the Board of Trustees would like to acknowledge all staff whom were considered for this prestigious award, and to once again congratulate Ms. Courtney Fecho as Prairie Land’s 2021 Edwin Parr nominee.
