Clearview Public Schools Celebrates Education Week May 3rd - 7th

The first Alberta School Week (Education Week) was held December 2-8, 1928. Its purpose then, as now, is to call attention to the importance of education and to show the public the good things happening in Alberta schools.

  • Illustrate the important role that schools play in communities;
  • assure taxpayers that public funds are being put to good use;
  • invite the public into classrooms for first-hand experiences;
  • highlight the partnership between teachers, parents and students;
  • demonstrate the important leadership role that the teaching profession plays in student learning;
  • and celebrate the contribution that all staff and volunteers make in the school.

Learning is a Journey

Every three years, the ATA, in collaboration with Alberta Education, chooses a theme to help schools and locals plan activities that send consistent messages supporting public education to the community.

The theme from 2017 to 2020 is "Learning is a Journey," and intends to profile the role that education plays in all of our lives in shaping the province's future. It's a great time to celebrate teachers' proud legacy in public education and work toward an inspired future that includes the following:

  • Optimal learning conditions for every child
  • Creative and innovative learning programs
  • Students who enjoy learning and who achieve their learning goals
  • Parents and communities that are involved and supportive of learning
  • School leaders who are also teachers
  • A well-thought out curriculum delivered by well-prepared professionals
  • Opportunities for teachers to continue developing their skills as professionals
