Community partners: we can’t succeed without you

Ruth Snyder, Alberta public school board trustee from Northern Lights School Division #69, wrote a blog post today to acknowledge the contribution made by peace officers working in the division; their wages are paid by the MD.  She says “I’m thankful we have many partners who support us in providing quality education in our communities.” We at Canadian Rockies Public Schools are also thankful for those who support our work and our students.

Today I want to send a shout-out to Canmore Rotary for all that organization does for our kids. From being a gracious host at “Festival of Trees” to donating to “Food for Learning” to providing opportunities for international exchanges to citizenship initiatives to the “Adventures in…” career programs and beyond, this group of men and women truly practice “Service above Self”, and live “One profits most who serves best” – to the benefit of the children in our area schools, helping translate students’ dreams and hopes into reality.

About Esmé Comfort

My husband Jim and I moved to the Bow Valley in 1980, settling in Canmore in 1983. Both my children were born in Canmore and attended K -12 in Canadian Rockies Public Schools District (CRPS), French Immersion. For the past six years I served as vice-chair of the board. Alberta Government support to the CRPS Inspiring Hearts & Minds initiative created opportunities for provincial, national and international outreach. In the past I held positions on the Canmore Daycare Board, the preschool board, and various school councils/PACs; I served as president of the local chapter of Canadian Parents for French for five years and sat on the provincial board for two. I currently sit on the board of the Canmore Folk Music Festival, work full time at an events management firm and edit, copy-edit and proofread on contract. My husband and I ran a small main street business for 18 years: supply and install floor wall and window coverings.
