Welcome to Evergreen Catholic Separate Regional Division No. 2 website! We are proud to serve families in five distinct communities: Devon, Hinton, Spruce Grove, Stony Plain, and Westlock.
In the past year, our Board of Trustees has done tremendous work revisiting our Vision and Mission. Both continue to reflect the needs of our students and the goals of learning in the 21st century.
Following in the footsteps of Jesus Christ, our mission is to educate in an atmosphere of faith, hope, and love so as to prepare our students to live as compassionate, confident, and contributing citizens.
In Evergreen Catholic Schools, we believe that:
In 2011-2012, we unveiled a new Vision Statement:
EVERGREEN CATHOLIC: EVER GROWING, LEARNING, AND LIVING IN CHRIST
EVER GROWING and LEARNING
Much of the work we do will be in response to the provincial initiatives, Inspiring Education, which outlines a vision for education in Alberta in 2030, and Inspiring Action, its sequel. The future model for education in Alberta will focus on a process of inquiry and discovery. Technology will have an increasingly significant role in our classrooms.
Throughout the past year, our teachers and trustees have pondered the future of education and the critical question: “Is what we are doing today relevant for tomorrow?” Understanding the needs of the 21st Century Learner is a challenge that we face. We need to continue our conversation about what education for students of Evergreen Catholic will be in 2030. There will be a gradual shift in what learning ‘looks like’ in our schools; all stakeholders will be involved.
How am I, as Superintendent, preparing for 21st Century Learning? I have made a commitment to become more familiar with the various forms of technology and networks that engage our students so as to gain a better understanding of how they communicate and learn. You are invited to follow my journey and to be part of the discussion on twitter.com/SuperECSRD
LIVING IN CHRIST
We embrace what Jesus taught: “All things can be done for the one who believes.” (Mark 9:23). From school to school, I witness exemplary respect for and expression of Catholic tradition. Catholic Schools play an important role in educating the whole child. The Vatican document, The Catholic School, states:
The Church is absolutely convinced that the educational aims of the Catholic school in the world of today perform an essential and unique service for the Church herself. It is, in fact, through the school that she participates in the dialogue of culture with her own positive contribution to the cause of the total formation of man.
Whether we bring the Church to school, or send the school to Church, we provide our students with powerful opportunities to encounter God, and to be shaped by the Eucharist, the source and summit of our Christian life. Through our Mission and Vision, we continue to offer Catholic education of the highest quality. I am honoured to be the Superintendent of Evergreen Catholic School Division.
