Cookies For All
The Spruce View & District Lions Club came to the school with boxes of cookies, each cookie individually wrapped from the local bakery. The cookies were for all students and staff to celebrate the school year. What a treat that was for all of us. It was great to celebrate a hard year of in-person and online learning for many in the school. We appreciate how our local Lions Club supports the school in so many ways throughout the year.

Discovering the Metis
We thank the Red Deer Museum for such a fabulous and informative display for the Kindergarten to Grade Nine classes.
