Letter from the Chair of the Board of Education: Thank You

Dear School District 8 – Kootenay Lake Community,

The Board of Education thanks every SD #8 employee, in every department and everywhere from maintenance yards, busses and classrooms to the District office - teachers, administrators, educational assistants, custodians, executive assistants, bus drivers, playground supervisors, social workers, psychologists, speech therapists, technology support and other support providers, plus everyone not mentioned here - for making Kootenay Lake schools such wonderful places to learn.

Thank you for all your efforts supporting and bringing the joy of learning to our students, whether from the classroom, the office, the bus, or the playground.

We are extremely proud of how you managed with courage, empathy and resilience and steadfastly cared for and nurtured our students and each other despite all the additional stress, anxiety and work caused by the pandemic.

2020-2021 has been very challenging, and yet it has been a successful year because of all you do.

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. We hope that you will find time to rest, relax, rejuvenate, and enjoy a very well deserved safe and healthy break this summer.



Lenora Trenaman

Board Chair

School District No. 8 (Kootenay Lake)
