School District No. 83 Quick Survey

Dear staff, students, parents and guardians, and other community members,
As we move into the early stages of implementing our District Strategic Plan (, we wish to do a quick “check-in” on where the stakeholders see our progress so far. As well, our newly formed Communication Committee is considering how our District and the schools interact with their community, and looking at some ways we might improve this critical part of our work in support of our second goal area in the Plan.
This survey will be open for one week for anyone who has received this email. Please click on the link below and take just a few minutes to answer these questions and help guide our work going forward.
Thank you,
Peter Jory
Superintendent of Schools/CEO
School District No.83 (North Okanagan-Shuswap)

ALF Girls Soccer Team At Hope Tournament

Congratulations to ALF’s senior girls soccer team for their 10th place finish at the Hope Secondary Annual Tournament. The girls purserviered playing through the rain with a short lineup. They won 3 games beating last years record.  Lucy Halvorson saved and then scored the game winning goal in a shootout, Makayla Furlong used her speed to ward off offensive plays and Navi Koenig only allowed in 1 goal per game. Fantastic job ladies.

Welcome to our new website

Dear Parents & Guardians

We have a new look. What do you think of our new website?  We have also linked it with our twitter feed & new Facebook page. We would like to do a better job of showcasing our students, but in order to do this, we need you to confirm that they may have their picture posted on our media sites. You can confirm this by going to the Parent Tab, Parent Connect, Forms, and completing the forms for School Dist & Outside Media. This will allow us the opportunity to shine the spotlight on our wonderful students. If you have any questions, or need assistance, please contact the school.

Gr. 8 Band

Congratulations to the A.L. Fortune Secondary Grade 8 Concert Band and teacher/director Michelle Reed, for the just-received invitation to MusicFest Canada.
The band recently participated in the Okanagan Concert Band festival and did so well that they were presented with an invitation to attend the Nationals, which is an invite only, Canada-wide festival. Only three bands from the festival were given invites and A.L. Fortune one of them! Unfortunately, Nationals are in Toronto this year so the band will not be able to go but the invite is good for two years so, in the event that it comes west again, they would be eligible to attend in 2019.Gr. 8 Band

AL Fortune Musical Theater Production

Music, dance, laughs, and the age-old tale of boy meets girl – no musical puts it on stage better than ANYTHING GOES! A hilarious shipboard romp, wrapped around one of Cole Porter’s most magical scores. Anything Goes is set aboard the ocean liner S. S. American, where nightclub singer/evangelist Reno Sweeney is en route from New York to England. Her pal Billy Crocker has stowed away to be near his love, Hope Harcourt, but the problem is Hope is engaged to the wealthy Lord Evelyn Oakleigh. Joining this love triangle on board the luxury liner are Public Enemy #13, Moonface Martin and his sidekick-in-crime Erma. With the help of some hilarious disguises, tap-dancing sailors and good old-fashioned blackmail, Reno and Moonie join forces to help Billy in his quest to win Hope’s heart.
