From there click SCHOOL INFORMATION and then SCHOOL NEWS. The actual link is http://schools.cbe.ab.ca/b622/news.htm. Once you find it you can read it, save it to your desktop for later or print any pages you need in hard copy. By doing this you will have the information you need at your fingertips and minimize paper waste. Happy reading!
