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.

We Love our Volunteers!

On June 9 we honored our many volunteers during our morning assembly. Volunteers play a very important role at our school as they give of their time to help make DDS the wonderful school that it is. Volunteers have helped in many ways such as attending field trips, coordinating the lunch program, serving hot lunch, assisting in classrooms, reading to children, coordinating the home reading program, serving on our Home and School Council, helping with fundraisers, assisting with track and field day, supporting Scientists in Schools by coming in and helping in the classroom - just to mention a few. We appreciate YOU!

The volunteers were favored by a special song by the Grade 3 and 4 classes "Angels Among Us". 

We Love our Volunteers!
