Weekly Message #5-6

imagesAfter a two week hiatus, your weekly message is back!  What a glorious weekend with some beautiful weather.  Four days off and then three days at work – sounds pretty good!  The snap of winter cold is in the air and it’s time to put on those winter clothes.  Only 6 weeks until winter vacation – hard to believe!

Thank you again, to everyone who contributed to our Remembrance Day assembly on Friday.  It is such a touching ceremony – the beautiful singing, the somber speeches and the serious and respectful tone all contributed to a very successful assembly.  i thought that our colour party did a great job and hope that we will be able to repeat that aspect of the assembly next year.

Only three days this week but they’ll be very full.  Please take the time to review the school plan that was sent to you last week.  The final version is actually due this Friday so I will be busy collating your input and “massaging” the document to best reflect our collaborative view for this year.

I am planning an earthquake drill for this week – probably Friday afternoon.  If the weather is good, we will evacuate to the tennis courts on the lower field.  It will likely be very cold so make sure that students take the time to put on their coats and hats.  It’s a good opportunity to find out who is not dressing appropriately for the weather.  If it is raining, we will do a “drop and cover” drill only.

Joey Lau (Peer to peer mentor for SSAs) will be here at lunch on Thursday to talk with teachers about the role of the SSAs.  This is your chance to ask all the questions you want about the duties, responsibilities and assignments of our SSAs.  I hope you will take advantage of this opportunity for clarification.

Don’t forget to sign up for the staff Christmas party – it sounds like it will be lots of fun.  The more, the merrier.


  1. School Based team on Wednesday – agendas in affected teachers’ boxes.
  2. Supervision Aide meeting at 11:00 on Thursday.
  3. Meeting for teachers with Joey Lau at lunch in the staffroom.
  4. Rescheduled SSA meeting on Friday at 8:15 in the library.

Have a great week everyone!
