Principal's Message

Annual Used Book Sale

One of the highlights of the past month has been the Annual Used Book Sale. Sincere thanks go out to our community for the numerous donations and to all of the volunteers who worked tirelessly to sort and label thousands of books. The Used Book Sale Committee did an amazing job of planning and organizing this event. We are pleased to announce that a total of $4434.57 was raised to support literacy initiatives at our school. Please see page 3 of this newsletter for more details.
The lead-up to the book sale was also acknowledged with ‘Love to Read Week.’ Students enjoyed ‘dropping everything and reading’ throughout the week and engaging in various literacy activities. Classroom doors were creatively decorated to celebrate literacy and students and staff culminated the week by dressing as their favourite book characters. We would like to acknowledge all of the ‘Love to Read’ organizational work done by Kate Shepherd and her family. At last count, approximately $6800 had been raised by this event. We expect to have a final tally by mid April.
Another highlight of the month was student-led conferences. With great anticipation, students eagerly awaited the arrival of their families. Students were so proud to share their learning and products of their work with loved ones. If you were able to join us, we thank you for your attendance and for helping to nurture a love of learning.
In April, we are looking forward to engaging in a residency with Quest Theatre. The residency is entitled, “Telling Our Stories,” which will focus on sharing insights on the connection between culture and story. Students throughout the school worked on a pre-residency writing assignment, connected to cultural or individual belonging or identity. For the residency, teams of Quest artists will create performance with each classroom using the stories that have been generated. The residency will be introduced by an Indigenous storyteller, Raymond Many Bears, in a school-wide assembly on Friday, April 5 at 11:00 a.m. Afternoon kindergarten children are welcome to attend the assembly and participate in the performance.
Sincerely,
Stephen Hart, Principal Robin Halbert, Assistant Principal
