PRE-REGISTRATION WILL OPEN ON JANUARY 11, 2024 AT 8:00P.M. and CLOSE FEBRUARY 11 AT 8:00 P.M.
We have decided to start pre-registration on January 11th to make sure everyone is informed of the start time and has time to check out the sessions as the first week back to school can be quite hectic.
FOR PRE-REGISTERED SESSIONS PLEASE USE THE PRE-REGISTRATION LINK BELOW THE SESSION DESCRIPTION IN SCHED. Adding the session to your Sched schedule does not mean you are pre-registered. The number in the title shows how many will be allowed to attend the session. We do allow more names to be added, but they will be on the waiting list. This is explained on the pre-registration page.

If your collective agreement does not include language specific to road conditions or weather, you may make use of the personal leave clauses of your agreement in most cases. Please be aware that using any of these types of leave may require you to pay substitute costs, forego a portion of your salary and benefits, or report to your school or another work location in your district.

Lessons created and reviewed by Indigenous educators across Canada, including Alberta, provide age-appropriate content about the historical experience of Life on Turtle Island prior and after contact with Europeans, and the ensuing treaties, colonialism and Indian Act that impacts Indigenous Peoples today. Designed for grades 4 to 9, these online lessons include a guide to using respectful language and accompanying resources for students to build literacy and reflect on their own learning. These lessons and resources are provided free to teachers by Kids Boost Immunity where student learning is tied to helping others if teachers choose to have students do quizzes and earn vaccines through UNICEF (hence the name). Kids Boost Immunity is an approved resource for the Palliser School District. Teachers can enjoy an interactive experience and become students if they have their phone or notebook to access the lessons being shown online. They can experience firsthand the fun of completing quizzes and will be shown the program view for teachers who can monitor student participation in real time.
