Icicles in Steveston Sunday morning

Icicles in Steveston Sunday morning

Brrrr… it’s frosty out there but what a lift we get from the beautiful sunshine.  Another weekend is passing so quickly.  David’s band gig was great both nights this weekend.  Thanks to Jane for coming out on Friday night and Barb (and friends) for joining us on Saturday.  There will be new dates in 2015 and we’ll let you know in case anyone wants to dance the night away.

David and Adam are braving the cold to put up our Christmas lights and I am working on the inside decorations.  It seems like a lot of effort when we are doing it but we are always so pleased with the results.

I imagine many of you spent part of the weekend working on report cards.  I look forward to reading them this week and we will make every effort to get them back to you as soon as possible.  Thanks in advance for proof reading them before you hand them in. If you are going to be late, please make sure to let us know.

It was a great day on Friday with Misty as we continue to pursue “the inquiry approach” to teaching and learning.  It is always a positive experience to have the rare chance to talk about our  professional practice.  Thanks to the Pro- D committee for organizing and to everyone for their participation and support.

I am looking forward to ending the week with our staff Christmas party.  Thanks to the social committee for their hard work in organizing this year’s event.  It’s not too late to join us if you find you are available.  The venue is the same as advertised but due to low numbers, the cost is now $10 for appetizers and guests will order their own dinner off the menu.
