Weekly Message #5-18

imagesIt’s hard to believe that spring is still a month away with weekends like this one.  The daffodils are popping in our front garden and allergies are in full swing as the plum and cherry trees are blossoming.  We live in a beautiful part of the world!

Congratulations go out to Scott Robinson whose promotion to Superintendent was announced on Friday.  Scott has been an Associate Superintendent in Vancouver for the past few years.  He has both elementary and secondary administrative experience.  Personally, I have found Scott to be reasonable, fair and caring in his work with schools and principals and I am pleased to see him advance in our district.  Steve Cardwell’s last day at the VSB will be this Friday.

Another busy week is coming up – only two to go before Spring Break.  I have already read a few sets of reports and want to compliment all of you on the effort you make to personalize the opening comments for the parents.  No matter how you look at it, report cards are a time consuming aspect of our work – but a necessary one.  We can expect that there will be new reporting guidelines coming to reflect our new provincial curriculum – whoopee!

Please plan to attend the staff meeting on Tuesday at lunch when John Farias from the VSB will be here to explain the new recycling program – all food scraps must be disposed of separately as per Vancouver City guidelines or the VSB faces big fines.

This week’s student assembly will be in celebration of Pink Day – so search your closets for something pink to wear!  It promises to be a lively and entertaining assembly with performances by our choir and the dancers from Div. 7.
