Hey there, time traveller!
This article was published 01/07/2021 (458 days ago), so information in it may no longer be current.

After a school year like no other, students, teachers, education assistants, custodians, clinicians, clerical staff and all other adults who work in the public and independent school system have reached the end of an eventful time in education. 
 The pandemic has had a significant impact on everyone, students have displayed their resilience in dealing with in-person, remote and hybrid learning. Adults working in schools have also had to greatly alter how they did their jobs with student safety being the number one factor in how they made these adjustments. 
As a former educator, I know how challenging this must have been and I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for their unprecedented efforts in ensuring safe, stimulating learning environments that tried to respond to the needs of each individual child. This will go down in history as one of your greatest achievements as educators.
To the graduating class of 2021:
You have all shown tremendous agility and adapted to a myriad of learning challenges. Please know that this adaptability and agility are exactly what is needed as you move to post-secondary education or into the working world. Employers and post-secondary institutions are looking for people who are quick to adapt and able to learn new skills in an ever-changing working world. 
As Grade 12 graduates, you have learned to do the very things that will make you caring and successful young adults and as your MLA, I look forward to seeing how you will positively impact your community, province and country.
In community news, the pandemic remains the single largest challenge for the small businesses in Transcona.  
My family and I are residents here in the constituency and as residents, we continue to patronize local business establishments to fulfill our consumer needs. It is my hope that you all consider doing the same.  We continue to get closer to the end of pandemic restrictions and it is my sincere hope that we will be able to see each other in person, safely, in the not-too-distant future.  
As always, please feel free to reach out. I can be reached at 204-594-2025 or by email, nello.altomare@yourmanitoba.ca
