Thanks to Mrs. Martinoff for coaching the boys this year!



Jersey Day ~

Thursday, April 25 is Jersey Day!  Wear your favorite jersey to school that day.  Remember it does not have to be a jersey from a professional sports team.  It can be a jersey from a local team or a team your child participates in.

Education Week ~

Just a reminder that Education Week, April 29 - May 3, is just around the corner.  There are some events planned to take place at school next week.

Dance Play will be at the school all of next week from Monday, April 29 to Friday May 3 working with each class. Please ask your child to tell you what they are doing during this time.

If your child is doing something for the talent show, please encourage them to be practicing their routine at home.  

Science Fair is happening on Wednesday, May 1.  Again, please check your child's agenda for the specific time.  Students have been using some class time to work on their science fair projects.  They should also be working on their project at home to ensure that the project is complete prior to next Thursday.

Week of March 25th - 29th




Well it does appear that the saying "March comes in like a Lion and goes out like a lamb" will hold true this year.  The last half of March has definitely been enjoyable.  I hope the weather holds out so everyone can spend some time outside over Spring Break.  

Today we did our whole school Student of the Month reward.  The Gr. 3/4 class chose pancakes for the school as the reward.  During our March Match-up time, the students ate pancakes in their pajamas with their March buddy.






Image result for celebration of learning clipart Thank you to all of the parents that were able to attend our Celebration of Learning on Tuesday evening.  We had a wonderful turnout and the students loved sharing their learning. 

 

I hope everyone has a wonderful Spring Break.  Classes resume Monday, April 1st.

Week of March 18th - 22nd

Thank you to all of the parents that were able to make it out for the family skating party. Thank you also for being flexible with our constant juggling of times. Despite the fact that the ice was no longer in the best condition, everyone had a great time. Thanks also to the staff that made and served the hot chocolate. Everyone enjoyed the treat at the end of skating.  

We owe a great big thank you to Nick Martinoff and Durrand Hebner for flooding and maintaining the skating rink. I am just sorry that we were not able to make better use of the rink this year. 

I recently had a dad commented on how fortunate our students are. He would have loved to go to a school where there was a rink right on the school grounds. Our students are very fortunate to have that and sometimes take for granted those opportunities that are so easily accessible. I know I definitely had fun skating with the phys ed class on the rink this year! I particularly enjoyed watching the progress some of the students made in their skating each and every time they went out on the rink. Another example of how determination pays off!










Green Day ~

Monday, March 18th is Green Day. Even though it is a day after St. Patrick's Day, everyone is encouraged to dress in green.  Hopefully the little leprechaun did not come to school over the weekend, but if he did I am sure that the traps made by the Gr. 1/2 students would surely catch him.

Celebration of Learning ~

Students have the opportunity to share their learning with their parents/guardians on Tuesday, March 19th.  There have been wonderful things happening in each and every classroom so come to school on Tuesday between 4:30 - 7:00 to check it out.  Your child is excited to share all of their learning with you.

Pajama Day ~

What a better way to spend the last day of school before Spring Break than in your pajamas.  Students are encouraged to wear their pajamas to school on Thursday, March 21st.  

Professional Development ~

There is no school on Friday. March 22nd as this is a Professional Development Day for staff.  

Six of our students will be attending the Black Gold Youth Leadership Conference on Friday, March 22.  They will be learning about activities that they can share with the other students.  

Spring Break ~

Spring Break is from Monday, March 25th until Friday, March 29th.  Classes resume Monday, April 1st.  I hope everyone has a fun-filled Spring Break.  Safe travels to anyone that is going away for the break!
