December 3-7

It’s here! The Winter Concert!

Our Winter Concert (“December Gifts”) will be held on Wednesday December 5, starting at 12:45 in the gym. Doors will open at 12:00.  Parking is always in short supply, so please try to car pool whenever possible. We can’t wait to show you what our students have been working on!

A link was sent out by email last week to all parents. The survey is asking for feedback on our recent parent/teacher/student conferences to set goals for learning. We would really appreciate it if you could take the time to fill out the survey. The district will be making decisions about how to proceed, based on the results of the survey. Thank you for participating!

Have a wonderful week and we hope to see you at our concert!

 

November 26-30

Last week was our first reporting period goal setting conference for most of our students. This was an opportunity to find out how your child is doing at school and to collaboratively identify a goal or goals specific to the child to help move them ahead in their learning.  As a principal, my own goal is to be aware of each student’s individual goal and to talk with them about their progress as often as possible. Keeping the goals in the forefront of each day will help students be successful.

Friday November 30 is hot lunch day. Our PAC president has been in contact with DeMilles and they are ensuring that if the Romaine lettuce caution is still in effect, there will be no romaine in the wraps. They will substitute another “green”. Thanks for looking after us!

WINTER CONCERT is approaching very quickly!! Our winter concert is Wednesday December 5 starting at 12:45. Doors will open at 12:00.  Save the date!

Have a spectacular week!

November 19-23

Reporting conferences are this week! Students will be dismissed at 12:13 on Tuesday November 20, 2018. If your child rides the bus, the bus will leave the school shortly after 12:13. Please bring your child to the conference as they are a super important part of their own success!

Winter coat exchange: Just a reminder that we will have any of the donated coats out on display during conferences on Tuesday Nov 20. If your child is in need of a winter coat and there is one that fits, please help yourself. Any donated coats are being collected at the office prior to the conferences.

Thursday Nov 22: Hot lunch orders are due to the office.

Coming up: Monday Nov 26 at 2:30 is our PAC meeting.

Nov 12-16

Hope everyone had a great weekend!

Coming up soon… our reporting conferences! All families should have received a notice at the beginning of November to schedule times to meet with their child and their child’s teacher to set learning goals. The schedule is almost complete and teachers will be confirming times with parents as soon as possible, if they haven’t done so already.

***Reminder! Students will be dismissed at 12:13 on November 20***

 

Nov 5-9

Our November newsletter went home last week. Please take a moment to read it as there are a number of important things happening this month.

Parent/teacher/student conferences are happening on November 20. Students will be dismissed at 12:13 on this day. A form went home last week asking all parents/guardians to check off times they are available for conferences on Nov 20. Please return this form quickly as it is first come-first served! These conferences are so important for moving your child’s learning forward.

November 9 is a school day! We will be having our Remembrance day assembly at 10:45 this Friday. Please join us as we pay our respects to those who have served Canada.

Monday November 12 is a holiday.

Tuesday November 13 is a non-instructional day. There is no school for students but all teachers will be engaged in workshops focusing on the renewed curriculum. Specifically, we will be working on our two school goal areas of numeracy and place based learning.

Have a wonderful week!
