4 “Today I spent time with the Chief Superintendent Naomi Johnson. She made me feel very special”. Grade 3 Douglasdale Student

6 “Having students in our building is truly special. It reminds all of us why we do the work we do. Students are at the core of everything that happens at the Calgary Board of Education. I love that they are so inquisitive and authentic. The opportunity to attend a Campus Calgary program for many of our students gives them the opportunity to see things beyond the classroom and gain a greater understanding in how a school board operates….visiting with the students is one of the highlights I experienced as a Trustee”.
