Ward 5 - Judi Hunter

judy

Judi Hunter, Trustee for Ward 5, is serving her first term as trustee. Ward 5 represents schools in Springbank, Bearspaw, Bragg Creek, Westbrook and rural Cochrane. Civic duty and community contribution are important to Judi, and she sees herself as an advocate for public education. She has been active in the Springbank community for several years, most recently coaching soccer. Previously, she was also active in politics, coached debate clubs and involved in public speaking for youth. She completed a Bachelor of Education and Master of Education and was a former principal with the Calgary Board of Education. Judi has been married for 50 years and has eight grandchildren attending schools in Rocky View. Her interests lie with sports, her family, travel and learning – nothing gives her more pleasure than to see someone learning.

 

October 2019 Report

OCTOBER NEWSLETTER from Trustee Hunter

 

Hard to believe that it is already the first of October and that we have had our first 12 inches of snow.

 

All schools are well into their school year with curriculum being taught and sports teams in progress.

 

The transportation department continues to modify routes and respond to transportation queries.  Transportation issues are being discussed at the provincial level. While Boards are now able to implement fees, your Board will likely not due that mid-year as it has had no consultation with stakeholders and still has not received the Provincial guidelines and funding formulas for transportation.

 

The Board has elected a new Chair, Fiona Gilbert, and vice-chair, Melyssa Bowen. We also welcome Sandy McDuffe as our new area director for the West-side schools.

 

The Electronic Recycle Association has announced a poster contest for waste reduction week. www.era.ca

 

We are extremely excited to announce our 2nd Kids Poster Competition in a year. 

 

We are asking students between the age of 6 and 12 to create a poster that best represents ERA mission:

 

  • To reduce electronic waste and the negative impact it has on our environment, and to reuse unwanted computers and related electronic equipment through recovery, refurbishment and computer donation programs 
  • Waste Reduction Week

 

There will be one winner from each school that participates and the winning student will receive a laptop and an extra laptop to donate to a charity of their choice. Their art work will be showcased on our blog and social media throughout the month of December.

 

Westbrook School Construction is well underway. Staff and students are adjusting to the complexities of working in a construction zone September 30, all schools demonstrated their support for and recognition of Indigenous reconciliation by wearing Orange shirts.

 

Celebrate Disability Employment Awareness Month (DEAM) by:

 

  • Promoting increased participation of Albertans with disabilities in our provincial economy
  • Celebrating workers living with disabilities, their skills, successes and achievements
  • Recognizing that, as Albertans, we all have unique skills and interests that make us valued members in our workplaces
  • Supporting employers in promoting inclusive hiring practices and demonstrating their ongoing commitment to Albertans with disabilities

 

The Board is looking forward to receiving the provincial budget allocations to schools October 31, 2019.
