    Just in time for Christmas the Willow Creek Parent Association (PAWS) received a major grant from the Alberta government.

    Friday, December 13th, 2013 was a lucky day for PAWS and the school as MLA George Rogers presented to PAWS President Kerri McKinnon a check of $52,157 to the school’s playground redevelopment. The funds came from the province’s Building Alberta Plan and will go a long way towards helping complete the $250,000 playground project.

    The presentation was made in the midst of the students assembled in the school gym. Principal Rhonda Brunken began the assembly thanking the students for the excellent Christmas concert that was held the previous evening and then introduced MLA Rogers and President McKinnon. MLA Rogers told the students how Willow Creek has been an important influence in his life and how pleased he was to be able to make this presentation on behalf of the province.
