St Ambrose CES

January 31, 2013

Double Duty today!  Great start to the day speaking at St Ambrose CES (with another great view of the mountains!).  Two very attentive groups with endless questions.  I look forward to returning in May – and speaking to the parent community

Tanbridge Academy

January 30, 2013

A unique experience today with the smallest groups I have ever spoken with at Tanbridge Academy.  Excellent attendance and questions.  The parents this evening were terrific!

“The fastest 2.5hrs I have ever experienced” – a father who attended and couldn’t believe we spent that much time together (the reason was due to the constant interaction with parents during the presentation).  And the best part?  Not one person left!

A special thanks to Connor.  A young man who decided to return with his parents to hear & learn even more –  and all in an effort to help his younger sister!!   That was a great way to end my day

Senator Patrick Burns PS

Another record setting crowd this evening for me.  Thanks to all the parents who braved the minus 20 degree temperature to attend!  Your community support was tremendous.  The students today were excellent – and with great questions, long after the presentations ended.  Thank you to the staff and parents for making this day a success.

Arbour Lake PS

January 28, 2013

A great day with the students at Arbour Lake PS.  Both groups had endless questions.  I appreciate the group of students who stayed after the school day had ended who asked more questions.  When I hear a young girl say ” Thank You, Thank You, Thank You” – it’s an awesome feeling!!  Parents – you spent a long (cold) night at the school – thank you for the great feedback!

Ascension of our Lord

January 25, 2013

Friday’s are generally down time for me.  Given that I am spending the weekend in a great city, I thought to use the day to speak to another school.  This morning I spent time with the students at Ascension of our Lord.  Excellent questions from both groups (and even the teachers!).  Thank You to the two team leaders in grade 4-6 who took some very important notes for the group.

Christ The King

January 24, 2013

A great day at Christ the King School.  Two large and very attentive group of students.  Thank You to the parents who attended this evening – and their comments and questions.  Excellent feedback from your Principal on how the day impacted the students once I left.

Tom Baines

January 24, 2013

Today was a record setting day thanks to Tom Baines.  This evening set the the mark for most parents that attended my presentation – from start to end, we hit 2.5hrs with all your Q&A, and most of you stayed!!!  Excellent marketing/efforts by the team at Tom Baines.  This was real community effort.  The students today (and two very large groups) were excellent.  The feedback forms that I just finished reading from parents were tremendous.  Thank You!

Bearspaw Christian School

January 23, 2013

A double duty day for me today.  Starting off at BCS.  It was a pleasure to speak to your student body today – both very captive and great questions.  I look forward to returning next week to speak to your parents!

Nose Creek

January 22, 2013

Two very large groups of students today – and very respectful and attentive.  A reflection of great leadership at Nose Creek.  The students questions were excellent.  Thanks to the parents who attended with evening – I know you had a choice – Oprah or Paul Davis (yes, Oprah was in town speaking the same time I was).  Thank You for the great feedback!

John Ware

January 21, 2013

From Nellie McClung to John Ware for more students & parent presentations.  Excellent audience this evening.  Sorry for running overtime, but thankful that not one person left!  The parent interaction during the presentation is what I look for each and every night.  A great day at both schools!
