Weekly Message #7-29

IMG_9910Hoping you all had a great weekend.  David and I went to a memorial service for a friend’s mother this Saturday and had to drive through Surrey to get there.  The crowds of people heading to the Vaisakhi parade were huge – even on the periphery.  It’s too bad the weather didn’t cooperate but at least it didn’t rain all day.  Thanks to those of you who were able to “dress” for Vaisakhi – it was wonderful to see so many of our students in their beautiful suits!

Thank you for your input on the calendar, school fees and the school plan.  It felt like we were racing to get it all done in a very short period of time.

Calendar –  will be submitted for approval with the April date changed to Monday, April 30th.

School fees – We can do a bulk purchase of headphones through the school board for $5 a student so based on your feedback and a discussion with the PAC executive, I will increase our school fees to $50 per student to include a set of headphones.  Teachers will need to consider how to store the headphones safely for use in the lab and your classrooms.

School Plan – I would like to meet with anyone interested in working on the actual School Plan goal related to our chosen focus area of social / emotional learning at lunch on Tuesday so we can bring something to next week’s staff committee.  The plan is due in May so our timeline is short.


  1. School Plan Goal sub-committee in Patti’s office on Tuesday at lunch.  Any interested staff member is welcome.
  2. Earth Day Assembly on Tuesday at 1:00 will be led by Division 5.
  3. Patti & Karl at the area meeting on Wednesday morning – Jane will be in charge.
  4. Patti on vacation Thursday & Friday.

Have a great week everyone!
