Major renovations are happening at Bentley Schools and students can look forward to a fresh new look in keeping with the many educational opportunities offered at both the elementary and the high school.
“It is going to be another great year and everything has started up smoothly,” said principal Lane Moore.
“We are opening up classrooms, creating a student common and relocating our library all of which support our personalized blended learning environment and PRIDE (partnership, respect, integrity, dedication and excellence) motto,” said Moore.
The face-lift also includes the repainting of the elementary school. Logos are also being replaced.
Moore commended his teaching staff for their patience and commitment while the renovations are ongoing.
“They are an amazing group who put in countless hours for our students,” he said.
The hockey academy is going strong with 50 students from Grades 1 to 9 in the program.
The Bentley School will continue its partnership with Rimbey Junior/Senior High School this year.
“We send a bus twice a week (to Rimbey) for students to access the woods, metal fabrication and foods courses,” said Moore.
A breakfast, barbecue and the annual Terry Fox run will be held at the school on Sept. 19 to wrap up the welcome back week.
