National Volunteer Week takes place April 18-24. Most years, we celebrate the week in schools by thanking the hundreds of volunteers across EIPS who offer their knowledge and time to help enhance learning within the Division. This year is a little different because of COVID-19. While different, schools are thanking their families in new and creative ways.
On behalf of the Board of Trustees at Elk Island Public Schools (EIPS), I want to extend a heartfelt thank you to every one of our EIPS school families for your support over the last 12 months. Collectively, we’ve created a relationship that allows us to rally behind one clear vision: To provide exceptional education for all students. As we navigate the pandemic, it’s critical we continue to work together to support student learning. Through this, we’ll inspire learners and ensure they gain the skills they need to transition to the next grade or the world of work.
So, again, thank-you for your time, for your efforts, for your kindness and for your understanding as we work together to ensure all students succeed.
Chair, EIPS Board of Trustees
