Thank you so much to our PAC for purchasing our new shed. Thank you as well to the talented students of Royal Bay Secondary who built it and then delivered it today. We will use it for all of our sand toys, outdoor equipment and our upcoming “Loose Parts” building supplies. What a great start to November.
The leaves are changing and the air is starting to feel crisp and a wee bit chilly. Fall is definitely here and we have many events to look forward to this month. We have Parent Teacher Interviews on Oct. 17th. The Book Fair arrives on October 15th and stays for a week, so you have plenty of time to shop. Our PAC sponsored Bottle Drive is on October 13th and our PAC meeting is Oct. 10th at 6:30. We also have our Halloween Dance and festivities to look forward to at the end of the month.
Please remember that our Reunification Drill takes place on October 22nd at 1:00. See you there!
September 4th will be our first day back from the summer. Although it is often hard to let go of the holidays, it is also exciting to start a new year. We are very much looking forward to seeing familiar faces and also getting to know some new families. September 4th is a half day- students will be released at 11:38. We will start full days on September 5th. New Kindergarten students do not start until September 10th. If you are a new Kindie and are unsure of your start times (gradual entry) please contact the office.
See you soon! Enjoy the next gorgeous week of sunshine.
The entire team at Crystal View would like to thank our parents, students and community for their support and enthusiasm during this school year. I would like to send a special thank you for the warm welcome everyone has extended to me during my first year here as principal. It has been a wonderful experience. Enjoy the summer with your friends and families and we will see you back here in September!
Our Beach Day was a total hit! The children were incredibly well behaved and the weather was beautiful. Thank you to all of our families for coming out and enjoying the day with us. As well, a extra special thank you to our staff for looking after our students with such care and great sense of humour.
Fun Day on Friday afternoon. Stay tuned for some pictures.
We have a full calendar over the next few weeks. This week started with a bang with the School Intermediate Track and Field Practice and perfect weather. There is a PAC meeting on Wednesday night- looking forward to seeing you there! On May 17th, we will have Class Photos and a visit to the Symphony for our older students. The Book Fair runs from May 22nd to 25th with the Spring Concert on May 23rd (1:00-2:00). To add to the excitement, we will also be drawing the winning tickets for the amazing PAC Raffle with a first prize of a trip for two anywhere West Jet flies. Wow! It is going to be fantastic.
We are having our second Book Fair at the school from May 22nd to May 25th. We scheduled it for the same time as our Spring Concert which will take place on May 23rd. All families are welcome to shop during the hours of the Fair. We accept credit cards, cash and debit. See you there!
Please remember to bring your bottles by the school on Saturday, April 7th. The Grade 5s will be fundraising for their end of year trip. We will also be collecting in the neighbourhood and Belmont Park.
Looking forward to seeing everyone on Tuesday, April 3rd. Can’t wait to hear about all the Easter adventures.
