Moberly Weekly Message #25

OK… we’ve had the showers and there are lots of flowers but where is the sunshine (and warming up) that we expect to get in April? Hopefully this week!

This is the week when the VSB announces their preliminary budget so be prepared to be called to a staff meeting on Tuesday at lunch to hear what is planned. Likely, you have already heard that 8 people from PASA (excluded staff) were laid off last week. I imagine the news will be grim given our ongoing budget shortfall but the board is doing its best to protect classrooms and programs.

Centennial planning continues at the pace of a speeding freight train! Please let Dawn or Patti know if you have any questions, concerns or ideas as we get closer to the big day.

THIS WEEK’S EVENTS:

1. Cardiome is a Vancouver based pharmaceutical company who have committed to reaching out to young people about careers and opportunities in Science. A group of their staff members have teamed up with the Mens’ UBC Basketball team to bring a program for our grade 7 students on Monday. Please note that the old gym will be in use all day. Lunch is being provided and two excellent quality microscopes are being donated to our school.

2. Patti and Dawn will attend the budget meeting at the VSB at 8:00 a.m. on Tuesday.

3. Friday is our school planning day and Vaisakhi lunch. Hopefully all staff will be there as we work together to review student progress and set our goal for next year. There will be prizes!

4. Looking forward to next week – mark Wednesday the 20th for our Smartboard coffee club. All going well, Gwen will share how to set up a Jeopardy style game on the board.

Have a great week everyone!
