Principal’s Message – September 23

Dear Parents and Guardians,

I just want to begin by sharing that today’s Terry Fox Run was a great success! Thanks to Ms. Kubin & Mr. Henry’s Grade 3/4/5 class for organizing the assembly and run for our school! See more information in our Good News Notice coming later this weekend.

On Tuesday, September 27, our school will be hosting an Open House. The Open House will run from 3:30p to 6:30p and is a fantastic opportunity to see some of the great learning that has been going on over the past weeks. Please take advantage of this time to connect with your child’s teachers.

Following the Open House, our Parent Advisory Council will be hosting their first meeting of the year. The meeting begin at 7:00p and is a good way to keep informed about initiatives going on at the school as well as finding out ways you can contribute to our learning community. We hope to see you there.

Thank you to all families who have returned their consent forms. While we understand that this is quite a lot of paperwork, it does make things go more smoothly through the year. Good luck in the draw for dinner at Mile One!

Next week, on Friday, September 30, we will be observing Orange Shirt Day. This important day allows our school community to recognize the history of residential schools while moving forward towards a better future. Students will be involved in various classroom activities, as well as a school-wide assembly to mark this important day. Students, if you have an orange shirt, please wear it.

There are several other important events next week that have been shared in our daily announcements. Please click here to see them, if you have not been getting the daily announcements please email she@sd48.bc.ca to be added to our list.

Should you have any questions regarding your child’s education, please feel free to contact me email at ddunkin@sd48.bc.ca or by phone at 604-894-6378.

I wish you all a safe and restful weekend.

 

Sincerely,

David Dunkin

Principal
