“Education Week, which runs this year from May 2-6, is a great opportunity for all of us to celebrate and thank the many Albertans who play such an important role in the education journey of our students.

“From teachers to bus drivers, school board trustees to administrators, parent volunteers and so many others, it takes a community of Albertans working every day to ensure our children receive the world-class education they deserve.

“This and every week, we recognize the important role of all education partners in teaching, supporting and nurturing Alberta’s students. I want to thank you for your dedication, resilience and passion in everything you do.

“Together, we continue to work each and every day towards a shared goal: an excellent, world-class education that prepares our students for success and fulfilment throughout their lives.”
