This month brings EARTH DAY. To honour this date, students are invited to come to school in their PJs, with a flashlight ( hopefully labeled with their name) and their favourite books, for LIGHTS OUT reading in the gym. We have also added some fruit bearing plants in to our school garden. The perennial herbs that were planted last year have emerged, and the PROJECT PICKLE garden boxes are getting ready for cucumber plantings! We have also had some vegetable seeds donated for planting in May.
Track & Field season is here. If your child is in grade 4 - 7, this will be part of the PE program, as well as part of DPA (Daily Physical Activity). For this reason it is important that he/she comes dressed prepared for an outside workout, every day, includinf a change of footwear & socks on rainy days.
Students who are interested in participating in the TRACK TEAM, which has our Tsawwassen Meet held on May 6th, attendance in the Tuesday and Friday morning Running Club, which begins at 8:00 am, is mandatory. If the child misses a practice, a parent note is required. Primary children and parents are also welcome to join with the Running Club, but are not eligible for the team!
If your child will be away please call the office - day or night - and leave a message. 604-943-2244. If you do not call us - we need to be in touch to confirm your child's absence.
Reminder - our lunch is from 12:25 - 1:12
The MOBILE Dairy was a great opportunity for our students to see where their milk comes from.
Key learning for some - Chocolate Milk does not come from brown cows!
KINDERGARTEN 2015 - 2016 We are now accepting registrations for the new school year. Please come in to the office to complete the registration documents.
We have been working on Social Emotional Learning (SEL) for the past 4 years, and have come up with a way to showcase this great work. We introduced CD TV on Monday theme assemblies. We have on-going episodes where the "Brainy-Acts" share their learning about how emotions affect learning, as well as lessons on how to be a more effective learner. The theme of our next episode is Changing Red Thoughts to Green Thoughts ( angry to calm ) .
