Today is the first day of spring or Motoyi in Blackfoot. It is a time of renewal and new beginnings. After a season of rest, the land comes to life with new growth, movement and sounds. #WeAreCBE https://t.co/HAOFLzXFFf

RT @NickleCBE: Grade 9 morning trip to Fish Creek Park. Students practiced building shelters, making fires, and of course enjoying s'mores together. @nickleschoolparents https://t.co/BCx7FXdm6o

RT @gale_school: Many grade 9 students have been working hard to research and create their Social Justice displays. Today, they presented them to our grade 6 students. #WeAreCBE @Area4CBE https://t.co/yb9tncl83e

RT @cmhsrams: CMHS appreciates our guest teachers. Our culinary students have been providing them with treats every morning. Substitute teachers are essential to our schools. Thank you. #WeAreCBE https://t.co/6VwZdt9i3a
