We would like to send out a huge THANK YOU and a grand MERCI for your support of our Read-a-thon! Together we raised $6705 which will be put to good use at our school. We have many projects that will benefit from this support such as our courtyard improvements, a washer/dryer set, benevolence fund, Yeti mascot, makerspace and special events and presentations for our students. We also saw the benefit of lots of extra reading time for our students! Thank you for helping your child to log their minutes! Prizes for the Read-a-thon will be handed out at Monday’s assembly.
Welcome and Huānyíng lái dào jiānádà (welcome to Canada) to our 5 Chinese international students! We welcome three girls and two boys from the city of Suzhou in the province of Jiangsu, China. The girls will be learning in Mr. Rathgeber’s grade 4 class and the boys will be learning in Mrs. Neiszner’s grade 5 class. The Chinese students will also have one hour per day of Chinese instruction from their chaperone, Miss Lily Liying. We are looking forward to the experience of learning with our new friends from China!
Congratulations to Mrs. Megan Buckley who, along with her husband Tim, have welcomed a new daughter into the world! Replacing Miss Capton (who was temporarily replacing Mrs. Buckley) is Mrs. Stacey Neiszner, returning from maternity leave. Welcome Mrs. Neiszner!
I love that this is a good news post! Support for students, new friends, new babies and new staff! It doesn’t get any better than that!
Have a great weekend!
Diane Roberts, Principal
