Learning Commons

Learning Commons

A Place to Gather, Inspire and Learn

Our new Learnings Commons was revealed September 2015. The students and staff all agree that it has been a wonderful addition to our Nellie learning environment.

Our new space boasts state of the art maneuverable furniture and technology in fun
vivid colors that inspire.

This project would not have been possible without the a successful grant application by PAC Executive Nicole L. and Krista S. and the directed Cheque Writing Campaign coordinated by Janet R.  A special thank you to Margot Feldman, owner at Schulman Design Inc., for hours of in-kind creative design solutions for this project.

June 2015 marked a successful end to our directed Cheque Writing Campaign for the Nellie McClung Learning Commons.  As a community we were able to raise $20,624.50 for our new Learning Commons. A heartfelt thank you to all of the anonymous donors and families that supported this project through direct donations and coming out to support our schools fundraising events.

You have truly made a difference for our kids and future generations at Nellie McClung School.

2021 ASCA Resolutions – HAVE YOUR SAY

2021 ASCA Resolutions – HAVE YOUR SAY

This year’s AGM will be held on April 25, 2021 (online). I am unable to attend this year’s virtual meeting but have arranged for another school to take our votes by proxy. As a result, we need to submit our votes on the proposed resolutions by April 23 at 8am. 

Any interested Nellie parent is invited to vote on the resolutions. I will tally the votes and compile a position for our school.

To have your say in this year’s online votes:

STEP 1) Review the resolutions in full through this link: 2021 Resolution Package:
https://www.albertaschoolcouncils.ca/public/download/files/173828

STEP 2) Cast your vote though this google form by April 23, 8am.

https://forms.gle/Y7DvGAKBkoHPJeHE7


The resolutions are voted on as is, with a yes or no vote. After you have reviewed the resolutions, please complete the google forms below and I will compile and submit our votes based on the majority for each resolution. 

I realize this is a substantial amount of content for interested parents to review. As your representative on PAC I am working toward having a dedicated council meeting in the future to discuss these resolutions at length each year in March when they come out. In lieu of that, this year I would like to share a resource document from a non-partisan, non-profit public education advocacy group fighting for the rights of all children to an equitable and accessible public education system. Although not affiliated with SOS, I and the chair of your Nellie PAC are in agreement with this voting guide for your consideration.

Thank you for your participation. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me.
