    Abby cares, but Langley cleaned up Aberdeen

    by colinc, 15 days ago

    It is interesting that as you cross the dividing line (Station Rd) between Aldergrove and Abbotsford on the west side that all of a sudden you observe the proliferation of trash on the Abbotsford side. So much so that even Langley has noticed the problem. Why is Abbotsford struggling with the most basics of hygiene? On Earth Day, Langley Environmental Partners picked up 180lbs of Trash in 2 blocks (in 2 hours) in Aberdeen. Does Abby care or is it just waiting for people from other communities to clean it up?

    Eugene Reimer Middle School "We Are Canada" Project

    by Mrs. Nerlap Kaur Sidhu, 5 months ago

    A community is a group of people living in the same place and having particular characteristics in common. As students our goal for the Eugene Reimer Middle School "We Are Canada" project was to have students across Canada recognize a bit of themselves in each other and in our community members. We are proud to share that this project connects and strengthens relationships between school, home and community. We wrote "I am" statements by reflecting on and asking ourselves the most difficult questions. Who Am I? and What do I stand for? This reflective process was authentic, meaningful and helped...
