Family School Liaison Worker (FSLW)
This year, Danielle Wade is joining us 2-3 days a week to support students and their families in a variety of areas. She has a comprehensive approach, always willing to listen, help problem solve, and provide information. Most importantly, she is there to support you, whether your stress is related to home, school, your personal life, or anything in between! Talk to your grade coordinator, send her an email email@example.com or swing by her office to get in touch with her.
One of our more obvious team members wears his Edmonton Police Service uniform proudly as he walks the halls and helps students and staff in many ways. Constable Maciej Rocki has worked for EPS for many years and brings his wealth of experience and knowledge to our school. Not only will he investigate criminal and non-criminal offenses and help maintain the safety of our school, he also works to mentor and empower students to make healthy choices in life. Maciej is also active in providing presentations to our students, ranging from topics on drugs to legal aspects of relationships and consent. His office is in the student services area, but he can be found all over the school and is always willing to stop and chat. Email him anytime with any questions you might have firstname.lastname@example.org
