Yesterday, many of our classes celebrated 100 days of school. There were all kinds of fun activities happening and lots of counting! Some students brought 100 items to share and count. Look at this creative way to show 100.
Please save your bottles for our Grade 5 Bottle Drive. The Grade 5 students will be hosting a bottle drive to raise funds for their end of the year trip to Camp Thunderbird. We will have a drop off location at the school and we will also be driving around the neighbourhood to collect from homes. We will send a reminder closer to the date.
On February 28th we will be acknowledging the importance of being KIND to each other and to ourselves. All during the month of February the students and staff have been noticing Random Acts of Kindness by writing down the name of the person who was kind, the nature of the kindness and then putting the information in our Kindness Box in the office. Each day we draw two slips of paper and read about the person and the kindness over the announcements. It has been a wonderful way to celebrate all the kindness shown by our staff and students. On February 28th we will continue to focus on acts of kindness by joining our province in wearing PINK for Kindness Day.
We are excited to announce that many of us will be participating in the Times Colonist 10km! Come on our and join us as part of our school team. Let’s get moving and shake away the darker days of winter together! Please see the above link for more information.
Parent teacher conferences will take place on March 15th from 2:45 until 7:00 pm. Stay tuned for further information about booking interviews. Looking forward to meeting with all of you again this school year.
