My heartfelt condolences are extended to the family and friends of Mrs. Alma Calais! I had the pleasure of working directly with Ms. Calais during my tenure as principal of Cecilia Primary School. Ms. Calais was a wonderful educator who loved her profession—one that allowed her to “mold” the minds of many young students who were entrusted to her to expand their knowledge. She was also influential in enhancing the French language/culture while working closely within the French Immersion program! She embraced French language teachers and welcomed them enthusiastically to our country and the Cecilia community! I’m sure many embraced her as a “mom” because of her nurturing qualities. She was loved and respected by all—to know her was to love her💕. She was an excellent educator who will be forever remembered by students, parents, and colleagues; she leaves behind memories that are etched in many hearts ♥️ Rest in Peace 🙏, Ms. Calais💕
