Call For Parent and Child Participation: The Economics of Happiness: An Examination of Children and Adolescents
UBC a Place of Mind
Dr. Mark Holder and undergraduate researchers from UBC’s Okanagan campus are conducting a study on well-being in children/adolescents and their parents. The study simply involves responding to questionnaires about happiness, life satisfaction, gratitude, hope, economic values, spirituality, and demographic variables.
If you and your child participate, you will each be entered in a draw to win 2 free movie passes.
If you have any questions, please contact undergraduate student Tara and Sarah at firstname.lastname@example.org. For more information, and to access our study please visit the link below. Paper versions of the questionnaires will also be available from your child’s principal. Please only complete one version of the survey (paper version or online version, not both).

Winter weather has hit us with a vengeance this year.
Keeping tabs on the school buses operated by Wetaskiwin Regional Public Schools has never been easier, with the introduction of a free iPhone app. The app, available now at the App Store, gives users the opportunity to select their favorite WRPS routes and then receive push notifications to their iPhone if those routes are delayed or cancelled.
You can search iTunes for "Wetaskiwin Regional Public Schools Bus Status" or simply visit the WRPS website at www.wrps.ab.ca from your iPhone and you’ll automatically be prompted to connect to iTunes to download the app.
If you don’t have an iPhone, you can keep tabs on your child’s bus by visiting your school website or the Wetaskiwin Regional Public Schools website at http://www.wrps.ab.ca/parents/bus-route-status

Accountability Pillar Survey!
As part of the Accountability Pillar, Alberta Education conducts surveys of teachers, students and their parents to gather information on the quality of education provided by Alberta school authorities and their schools. The teacher and student surveys are conducted online and parents are surveyed by mail.
- In public, separate and francophone schools, all teachers, grade 4, 7 and 10 students and their parents are surveyed. Please note that in small schools (fewer than 120 students in grades 4-12) and schools participating in the High School Flexibility Enhancement Project the survey includes students in grades 4 and above and their parents.
- In charter and private schools all teachers, students in grades 4 and above and their parents are included in the survey.
The results are provided to each school jurisdiction to use in updating their three-year education plans and to report in their annual education results reports, and are used to evaluate school authority performance on Accountability Pillar survey measures. Survey results and sample survey instruments in English and Français are available below.
