2017 Property Tax Payment Deadline

June 30th is the 2017 Property Tax Payment Deadline, more information here.

During the holidays the last two years teacher Jillian Lawson and her Grade 4/5 classes from St.Mary School in Moose Jaw sent letters and goodies to soldiers deployed overseas during Christmas. 

On Thursday morning at 15 Wing, Lawson and her students were given the Lois Boyle "Mother of the Snowbirds" award from the 15 Winf Fellowship for their letters and kindness. LawsonAward1Teacher Jillian Lawson accepted the "Mother of the Snowbirds" Lois Boyle award.

Before that award was handed out, several 15 Wing personnel were recognized for their efforts and years of service with medals and certificates, which Lawson said she wasn't expecting.

"It was overwhelming, I didn't know anyone else was getting awards today and that was awesome to see and I think it was great for the student to see too. Seeing these people be recognized for hard work and dedication to something, that's really important for my students to see that."

Lawson added that the whole journey of a simple writing exercise in her classroom has ballooned into meaningful lessons the children have been able to learn.

"It's kind of just showing them how small of a world it is, it's giving them meaningful writing experiences in class, it's teaching them about what's going on in our Canadian military and overseas. There's so many different ways that's it has impacted the students and myself... it's definitely something that I'll do again."

She began the writing project in 2015 as one of her family members was deployed from home for Christmas and she wanted to be able to make the distance easier on him. 

 This year was different than the last as Lawson and her class were mailed a response from a soldier who had attended St.Mary school himself.
