WELCOME CHRIS KOCH!
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.
Dec. 1 Mini volleyball tournament

Our mini volleyball season wrapped up with a four team tournament at Dorothy Dalgliesh School on December 1. The players were awesome and showed so much improvement and good sportsmanship.
A big THANK YOU to Mr. Van Dyk for organizing the league and all his hard work and dedication.
A big THANK YOU to our teacher coaches, Mrs. Boras, Miss Clarke-Davies and Ms. Rogerson.
A big THANK YOU to our student coaches from PBHS - they were excellent and we appreciate all their help!
We would also like to say THANK YOU to our volunteers who ran the concession, Amanda and Ellie. The spectators love a concession and it is a great fundraiser for the Grade 6 class. Thank you.
