Weekly Message #4-29

UnknownThis is a week when I think back over my years as a principal / vice principal (20 years this year!) as I attend our annual “Joint Retirement Dinner” on Wednesday evening.  This is a lovely event where current members of the elementary and secondary admin associations invite all the past retirees from both associations to dinner.  It will be my pleasure to attend this year with my Dad who is a retired secondary principal.   It is such a pleasure to reconnect with retired colleagues and friends – who all look very relaxed compared to those of us who are working!  The dinner is at the Pan Pacific so hopefully the weather will be good so we can enjoy the marvelous view.

Nice to have the weather forecast be wrong in our favour this weekend!  It turned out to be a great weekend to spend time outside and enjoy some fresh air.  We’ll need the energy as we head in to a VERY busy week full of special events.

The South Vancouver Neighbourhood House staff will be presenting Ready, Set, Learn on Tuesday afternoon so be prepared to see a lot of preschoolers in the building!

At our PAC meeting on Tuesday night, we will be electing our new executive for next year and making some plans for fundraising to support the new playground.

Thanks in advance to Gwen and her committee for organizing this year’s Volunteer Tea.  I look forward to seeing the performances by our talented students.

Student Council will be sponsoring the Free Freezie Frisbee Fun Day this Thursday at lunch.  It will probably be chaotic but hopefully lots of fun.  Please join us on the upper grass field if you are able.

Henry will be taking two students to the annual VEPVPA book presentation on Thursday afternoon.

And finally… (drum roll please), it’s Moberly Idol this Friday afternoon.  Thank you to Karen and all of the staff members who have stepped up to make this event a reality.  The kids are so excited and I do think this is their favourite day of the school year.  I can hardly wait to see what they will do this year!
