June Working Together Awards: Staff Behind the Scenes


Every AVRSB staff member plays a part in “Working Together for Students”. At various times throughout the year, we receive nominations from staff members who want to recognize a colleague for going above and beyond expectations in the work they do. To end the school year, we have three nominees whose work takes place "behind-the-scenes" but has a big impact on our system every day. This month, we are pleased to recognize Don Allen (Budget Officer), Angela Haggerty (Secretary to the Coordinator of Transportation) and Troy Frech (Data Analyst and Webmaster).

MRHS O2 Students Contribute to Local Turtle, Bird Conservation Projects


The Middleton Regional High School grade 10 Options and Opportunities (O2) class recently completed two local service learning projects that are helping to track and conserve wildlife. The first project involved constructing and installing bird houses for swallows inpartnership with the local Department of Natural Resources in Lawrencetown. The second project with the Clean Annapolis River Project involved fieldwork to help tag, track, and locate endangered wood turtles in the Aylesford area. Through these projects, students have gained an appreciation for local environmental issues, career opportunities, and best of all, the importance of making a difference in the community.
