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.

Save the Wolves!

The Eastern Wolf is an endangered animal due to trapping, habitat loss, and interbreeding with coyotes. I will be doing a raffle to raise money to help these wolves. The draw for a goodie basket and 2 mystery envelopes will be held at the October 30th assembly.

I will be selling tickets Tuesdays at last recess (2:10 pm); Wednesdays at lunch (12:00 pm); and Thursdays at first and last recess (10:30 am and 2:10 pm) all month. Tickets are 1 for $1.00 or 5 for $3.00. Check the link below for more information about Eastern Wolves and the Earth Rangers.

Thanks!
