Principal's Message | May

Spring weather is finally here. It is tremendous to see our PE students outside practicing for the track meet and have the picnic tables used during the lunch hour. Warm weather makes everyone feel just a little bit better! As we move through May and June our learning tasks require students to show more intensive learning that takes them one step closer to moving on to the next grade. Focussing on and engaging in learning is our central goal and purpose. All grades are working towards showing a summary of their learning – grade 9 students will write Provincial Achievement Tests – grade 7 and 8’s will engage in a variety of demonstrations of the years work. Review of work is important at this time of year as well please encourage your child to review work, consult D2L website and/or keep up with their homework. Good study skills are paramount.

We have recently celebrated student success! We rolled out the red carpet for our Drama Club on April 13! Tremendous work was evident in the acting, the sound, the lighting and costumes. Congratulations! We also celebrate our eight students and one teacher adventuring on the west coast of Vancouver Island! They joined other CBE schools on the trip of a lifetime to Bamfield. They sailed the ocean, hiked old growth forest and became marine biologists for five days. We anticipate offering this opportunity to students next year. Consider the adventure! Contact the school if you are interested and we can give you information about the trip/costs and fundraising.

May also brings our annual Quaite Creek backpacking trip in Kananaskis Country, our Talent Show, badminton tournaments and track meets. Our growth in learning is demonstrated in so many ways. Thank you to our students who make these events a success. Their efforts show the true Terry Fox spirit!

Please contact our main office to sign up for working at the Casino on June 22 or 23. We still have a few spots open. This fund raising event gives our students the benefit of grade wide bussing to many field trips, guest speakers, technology and resources. We would not have the events without it. Thank you to our School Council for their dedication in making this happen.

Transitioning students to the next year of education happens at this time of year. We will be welcoming our grade 6 students and parents on May 30, 2018 from 5:30-7. Also, festive plans are also underway to make Grade 9 Farewell - June 28 at 2 pm. Year end events also include a Sports Day and Athletic Awards on June 27. Report cards come home on June 28 with our Appeals Day on June 29, 2018. Lots to look forward to! Happy Spring!

Thank you,
Mrs. Patricia Hamlin,  Principal
