And then there was one!! It’s the home stretch before Spring Break. It’s always a busy time as we wrap up term 2 and this year is no different. We have lots going on so please read the information below.

New Information To Share

 

Jump Rope For Heart Event: What a great event last week!!!! The kids had a blast showing off their skipping skills while raising money for the Heart and Stroke Foundation. So far we’ve raised over $4000 and there’s still time to raise more. We have until this Tuesday to donate at jumpropeforheart.ca. If you collected money in the envelopes they are due on Tuesday also.

Student Led Conferences: This Wednesday and Thursday are student led conferences as we reflect on term two and set goals for the final few months of school. Hopefully you have all scheduled your time to come celebrate your child’s learning.

Scholastic Book Fair: This week is our Scholastic Book Fair during Student Led Conferences on Wednesday and Thursday.  It’s a great time to add to your home reading collection so you’re all set for summer! If you are able to help out, please email Mrs Perkins at sperkins@sd35.bc.ca

80’s Spirit Day: This Friday is our next Spirit Day … and we’re going back in time! Students and staff are encouraged to dress up in their best 80s gear and colours (think neon). House team points will be awarded!
