Weekly Message #7-3

images-2Talk about a weather shift – pouring rain then beautiful sun  Today turned out to be a gorgeous day and we spent some time wandering through the Steveston Artisan Market.  In spite of the warm temperature and the sun, you can still feel that Fall is in the air.

The transition to new classes seemed to go quite smoothly and I appreciate the work that all of you have done to make it work.  Thanks especially to Manpreet and Yvette for keeping all the numbers and names straight!

Thanks to everyone who got the Superpowers sheet into the office on Friday.  I look forward to getting the rest as soon as you can manage.  The “Wordles” are very interesting to read.  In case you are unfamiliar with this program, you type all the answers into a box and it makes a word picture for you.  The bigger the word is, the more frequently it was mentioned.  Soccer and helping others are two of the most popular superpowers in our school population.

imgresTerry Fox pledge forms are in your boxes on Monday – please take the time to talk with students about a real life hero!  I have some posters if you are interested in having one for outside your room.  You might want to consider handing out the tattoos on the day of our run (Sept 29th) so that students can put them on that day (or the day before)  Our goal is to raise $5000 which works out to just over $10 per student for this great cause.  Of course, we will be happy with whatever we can bring in.  We will be watching an inspirational video clip at our assembly prior to the run.  Thank you for your help.

Don’t forget to sign up for Shannon’s afterschool yoga group if you are interested.  Sign up is on the sign in table.  The winner for the Dianne Guild Winter Hat Draw will be announced on Friday, Sept. 30th.  Put your name in and you will win your choice of red or white.
