Crowsnest Pass students went back to school last Monday, and the first week went off without a hitch.
Students from kindergarten to grade 12 in the Pass went back to school on Tuesday, September 4th, filling the once empty hallways with new sights and sounds around the schools. The three schools of the Pass, Horace Allen, I.S.S. and Crowsnest Consolidated are excited for what the new year is expected it to bring, new memories and experiences for students and faculty alike.
The first week back went very well,” said Ian Baxter the assistant principle of Crowsnest Consolidated High School. “The Kids are in classes and things are going as we expected,” he said.
“We have a few more students than we were expecting, which is a very positive thing,” adding that although the final numbers are not in yet, the enrollment is predicted to be higher than last year.
Like the high school students, the children at the elementary schools also reportedly had a positive first week back.
“The first week has been great,” said Paul Pitchurski, principal of I.S.S. “The school is always pretty quiet the week before school starts. It’s nice to have the hallways filled with new sounds and faces on the first week.”
