Thank You, Thank You, and Thank You!

Micro Village Government says Thank You to all supporters

Micro Village Government says, “Thank You,” to all  our community partners.

Well, the end of the school year is fast approaching and so too, it is the end of PVS Micro Village’s activities for the year. We want to take the time to recognize and thank all the individuals and groups that went out of their way to support our Micro Village. Without the support of community members, such as those recognized here, our citizens would not have achieved the level of authentic and engaged learning they did, this year. Of course, we are not stopping here. This year was only the beginning of what will become a way of life in Parkland Village School. We anticipate infusing the principles of MicroSociety Ⓡ, and the authentic learning experiences into all areas of the curriculum in the year or years to come. As the students begin to truly live their Micro Village and take more ownership of the daily functioning of the MicroSociety, they will become increasingly empowered to engage in learning that is driven by student interest/choice, requires critical thinking, and promotes entrepreneurship, problem-solving, independence, personal responsibility, and social skills. 

With that said, we offer our appreciation and thanks to the following community partners:

  • Judge Burch for officiating our Citizenship Ceremony
  • Cpl. Kimberley Mueller for acting as an escort to Judge Burch during our Citizenship Ceremony
  • FortisAlberta for their very generous grant
  • Aspen Foundation for Labour Education for their generous grant
  • Shelley Opryshko of LifeTouch Photography, for her knowledgeable and financial assistance with our venture/agency signage
  • Value Village, Mayfield Common, for hosting Helping Hands

  • Mrs. Holly Armishaw, for her unfailing, ongoing expert support of The Italian Bistro

  • Petsmart, Spruce Grove, for their support of  Furever Pawrtners
  • Rob Svarin, TriLeisure Centre, for providing expert knowledge to both ProSports Life and Furever Pawrtners
  • Parkland Village School and community members for their kind donations of items for Helping Hands to sell in their Thrift Store
  • Home Depot, Spruce Grove, for their wonderful support of a Helping Hands initiative by donating a beautiful Buddy Bench and paint to decorate the bench

  • Naedene Jeanes for her work with Supply Management, Bugs & Berries Gift Shoppe, Helping Hands and TechCheck
  • All our Market Day visitors, of which there were many, who supported the work the citizens of Micro Village are doing

Once more, thank you to all our community partners for all they  have done, big or small, to support our Micro Village MicroSociety. Their support and generosity enriched the experiences our students throughout the year. We hope to connect with each and every partner again next year!
