We are now approaching a time of excitement, sense of adventure and heartfelt sentiment as we celebrate the graduating class of 2012.
From the perspective of the school board, we are very proud of our students and their accomplishments. We wish them the very best in their future endeavors.
As an old African proverb says, "It takes a village to raise a child".
There are many people that have contributed something to the growth, education, and nourishment of these students. The Board of Trustees wishes to express their thanks to these individuals.
First and foremost to the parents, who have the greatest impact on their children.
Secondly, the staff of the school system, whether being a teacher, bus driver, custodian, educational assistant, administrator, etc., they all have taken a part in contributing to each child's upbringing.
With the expansion of the Beautiful Plains School Division apprenticeship program, we also need to thank our business owners for supporting our schools and students.
These businesses support our students from one to three years and pay them to learn a trade while earning their credits for graduation and hours toward their apprenticeship.
There are many members of our community who have volunteered, coached, and/or mentored a student in some way.
To everyone that has sponsored a student, gone to a sporting event, chorale, drama, fundraising event, etc. you have shown that you are encouraging these students to become good citizens and show support for others.
The Beautiful Plains School Division Board of Trustees wishes to thank you, our "village", for everything you have contributed to our students and the graduating class of 2012.
