Dorothy Dalgliesh School and the PSBSPB is honored and excited to welcome inspirational speaker, Chris Koch!

Mr. Koch will be presenting in the DDS gym on:

  • Thursday, September 21
    • 9:00-10:00 am for grades 4-6
    • 10:45-11:15 am for grades K-3

While Mr. Koch has presented worldwide, and even been on the Oprah Winfrey Show, his roots are humble. Mr. Koch was born in Lethbridge and raised on a farm in Nanton.

While born with no arms or legs, his family refused to treat him with any pity or sympathy – they treated his disability by making the best of it. “After all,” Chris says, “I still have a good head on my shoulders.”

His message is based on his philosophy of “If I Can…” He speaks to not letting obstacles or limitations stand in his way, and how important it is to challenge yourself. Simply put, he says, “If I can do the things I have done so far in my life, what is stopping anyone else from doing the same?”

A HUGE thank you to the Public Schools Betterment Society of Picture Butte for sponsoring a large part of Mr. Koch’s costs.

DDS students spread kindness into the community

Today was our semi-annual school family activity where students came together in their school family groups and went out into the community of Picture Butte delivering potted plants and spring wishes to residents. Each resident in the designated area received a spring plant in a colorful hand-decorated bag along with a gift tag. Our theme was "GROW" with us at Dorothy Dalgliesh School!

The Grade 1 class grew and cared for the little plants as part of the Gr. 1 science curriculum. They then transplanted them to share their kindness with everyone.

We wish everyone a Happy Spring!
