Megan shares some of her fondest memories of our school system and offers words of advice for both parents and students:

 

TEACHERS THAT MAKE A DIFFERENCE
The best thing about Canadian Rockies Public Schools is the incredible staff. Being in such an incredible place (that being the Bow Valley) we are so fortunate to attract the most incredible and unique individuals that endure huge competition to start their careers here. They bring such awesome passion and charisma into the everyday school experience. However shoutouts where they're due, Astrid Heidenreich, Donna Rankin, Jodi Wanless, Rob Vanderlee, Bill George, Monica Gackle, Cate Scott, Rod Sanderon, Brenda Davidson, Carney.   

 

MEMORABLE MOMENTS
I love all of the extra curriculars. Get involved with EVERYTHING students, it's so so good!

 

SHAPING THE FUTURE
When I think about how CRPS shaped who I am today, I would have to go back to the staff. I'm very much a believer that your community raises you and these folks certainly had a huge collective impact on my life. They did such an excellent job of really making you think and re-think. Everything. From how you treat the people/world around you to how you are approaching that paragraph.



GOLD STAR
I would highly recommned these schools, for countless reasons. It will get your kids thinking, it will round them out into some very interesting people.  

 

WORDS OF ADVICE
Get involved to get the most out of it, students and parents.  Sports, clubs, committees, have fun with it.
