Welcome to Avery Outreach School
“Providing students with safe, positive, diverse learning opportunities”
Avery Outreach School offers an alternate education centre for students in grades 10-12. Avery Outreach School is comprised of three high school classrooms that can physically accommodate up to 18 students at a time. Each classroom has a full-time teacher and a full-time educational assistant to support student learning. Counseling support is also available.
Avery Outreach School offers correspondence based programming where students work independently on one academic course at a time. Option courses such as Art, Food Studies, and P.E. are also offered to students attending full-time. Programming is based on the individual needs of the student and success is dependent on the effort of the student.
Attention parents and guardians of Avery Grads:
If you haven't already purchased your ticket for the grad banquet, please stop by the school to purchase yours! Tickets are $20 each.

Avery Outreach School Act of Kindness
One afternoon in class, two of Avery Outreach School's finest, Autumn Krasnesky and Amber McDonald, began a discussion of how they would like to give back to their community by performing an Act of Kindness. They decided they would like to prepare a four-course meal for the Lloydminster Men's Shelter. To help make their idea a realization, they applied and were approved for a "Kindness Wins" grant from Beyond Borders Circle of Change.
Autumn and Amber then recruited a handful of their peers and they spent Monday morning in the school kitchen preparing the meal. The afternoon delivery was paired with a tour of the shelter which was an informative and eye-opening experience for all involved.
The day we have been waiting for has finally arrived! Construction is complete, and we are excited to be able to use all our new space!

Funded Students Age Limits
The following table highlights the age criteria that Saskatchewan and Alberta use to determine whether or not a student is eligible to be funded:
|Province||Age Criteria||Effective Date|
|Saskatchewan||Less than 22||September 30|
|Alberta||Less than 20||September 1|
Any student who does not meet these criteria would need to pay tuition to enroll with LPSD.

The staff of Avery Outreach School would like to thank Crew Energy for their outstanding donation of this meeting table and chairs. The students use this table on a daily basis for classroom work and for Art class. As a staff, we are now able to meet without putting tables together for our staff meeting and SCC meetings.
Back to school fun!
Pink Day #pinkshirtday
We encourage everyone to openly express that “Kindness is one size fits all”. We all have the capacity to spread kindness and that is the underlying philosophy behind our anti-bullying movement: a movement we hope lives year round beyond Pink Shirt Day. After all, kindness never goes out of style.
