Weekly Message #4-24

imagesWe had a marvellous day at the Vaisakhi parade on Saturday – thanks to the good weather and the great support from parents, students and staff.  Henry and I would like to thank Maria, Paul, Jane, Narinder, Richard and Mike for their amazing support on Saturday.  Thanks also to Harjinder Sandhu (former Moberly vp) and her sister who walked with us all day. Our parents worked late into the day on Friday (with a little help from me and Richard  to decorate our float.  We ended up with lots of students to help us collect money.  Between Friday afternoon and Saturday, we gathered over $1500 in donations with $200 promised to come this week!  More importantly, I think, our presence was noted and appreciated by the community.  We were number 17 out of 34 floats and we left the temple at about 11:00.  We didn’t arrive back until after 5:30 p.m. so it was a long day.  We were impressed and overwhelmed by all the free food we were offered along the way – no need for dinner when we got home.  Check out pics taken by VSB photographer at: Mr. Baker and our students at the parade and Our Moberly Float

There are lots of deadlines coming up so be prepared for the possibility of a “staff” meeting being called to get your input on required items.  I will try to get as much done at staff committee this week as possible but it’s that time of year where we are making decisions frequently.

Just a couple of weeks until our school planning day.  Please make sure to keep your reading assessment information handy as I will be asking you to share it with me as we examine results.  It would be a good idea to review the plan prior to our day together if you can find the time.  It is available on our website.

Two four day weeks coming up!


  1. Supervision Aide meeting Monday at 11:00 a.m.
  2. Finance Ctte meeting at lunch on Monday.
  3. JO articulation team here on Tuesday morning to meet with teachers.
  4. PAC meeting Tuesday morning from 9:00 – 10:30 in the library.
  5. Henry and Patti at the area meeting on Wednesday morning – Paul is in charge
  6. Staff committee meeting Wednesday at lunch.  Please list agenda items by Tuesday at noon so we can prepare and distribute our agenda the day before.
