IMPORTANT NOTE: The previously advertised Ward 12 BBQ Bash has been moved to a NEW DATE: SATURDAY SEPTEMBER 14, 2019 AT PUSHA Soccer Grounds in Ivor Dent Sports Park (175 50 St SW).
Programming at A Blair McPherson and Svend Hansen
As many of you may be aware, Edmonton Public School is proposing suspending the junior high programs at A Blair McPherson and Svend Hansen. The junior high programs would be relocated to the newly built Thelma Chalifoux (2845 43A Ave NW) for students in A Blair McPherson; with Svend Hansen students being relocated to Kate Chegwin (3119 48 St NW).
Unfortunately, as a City Councillor, I have no jurisdiction over any decisions relating to the development of programming with schools. However, I will continue to contact EPSB Trustees and EPSB to advocate on behalf of residents who are impacted by this change. Feedback from parents is being collected and considered before any final decision is made; with additional public consultation sessions expected for the Fall. For more information, I would encourage you to check: www.epsb.ca/schools/spaceforstudents/themeadows/
RESCHEDULED Ward 12 BBQ Bash in September and other opportunities to connect
In last month’s article, it was mentioned that I would be hosting a Ward 12 BBQ in August. Due to scheduling issues, we have since reschedule the BBQ Bash to Saturday September 14 from 2pm to 5pm at the PUSHA Soccer Grounds in Ivor Dent Sports Park (175 50 St SW) for a Ward 12 BBQ party! There will be food, games, bouncy castles, and more! I look forward to celebrating the warm weather with you and your family!
Our regularly scheduled coffee meets will resume in the Fall. However, in the meantime, if there are any issues you’d like to discuss with me, please do not hesitate to contact my office! I am more than happy to schedule a meeting at your earliest convenience to chat. You can contact my office by phone: 780-496-8148 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Lastly, if there is any feedback you’d like to share on any number of issues, please do not hesitate to contact me! My job is to best represent the needs and views of Ward 12 residents, and hearing from you ensures that I am doing that as best as possible. You can always send me an email or give my office a call so share any feedback on any topic.
