Peonies purchased at the Steveston Market

What a glorious weekend!  David and I went to the Steveston Outdoor Market today and I highly recommend that you consider checking it out in the future.  It is on every two weeks on Sunday all summer – right next to the Cannery and the Steveston Hotel.  Lots of local merchants with jewellery, crafts, soaps and delicious food /drinks.  Our kitchen is stocked with all sorts of homemade goodies to last for the next little while.

Congratulations to Melissa and all those who helped her to put together a beautiful Volunteer Tea on Friday.  It went like clockwork and I think the volunteers felt very appreciated.

The latest version of the class placement schedule was placed in teacher boxes on Friday.  It has been very challenging to find times for people to meet in between field trips, special activities, IEPs etc.  Sorry we couldn’t fit everyone into the 11-12 slot but it just wasn’t possible.  Thank you for filling out your pink and blue slips in advance of your casting times.  I will be chatting with you about the placement of special needs students on Monday if I haven’t touched based with you yet.  Once I have met with all teachers, I will be providing SSSAs with information about their tentative assignments for September.

Resource reports are due this Wednesday to Patti – please try to get them in on time.  Let me know if you will be late.

I am hoping the excellent weather will last until Sports Day this Friday.  A million thanks to Narinder and her helpers for organizing the Hot Dog Day.  She has managed to get donations from several sources (including Dale!)  to cover all the costs for this event so all the money we collect will go straight to the Playground account. WOW!

Speaking of the playground, Narinder, Dale and I attended a Rotary luncheon meeting on Wednesday last week where we provided information and a short presentation asking for financial support for the playground.  Keep your fingers crossed that we end up with some help.

The Health & Safety committee had planned to meet on Monday morning to do our assigned 1 hour Violence and Risk assessment survey.  Unfortunately, the information promised by the VSB to support that survey has not yet arrived so we will be rescheduling.  My apologies to the committee for the late notice of this change.
