Principal's Message

March-April 2018 Update

​Execerpted from our March-April Newsletter​.
A sincere thank you to all of the students, parents and staff who make Deer Run such a vibrant place. It’s exciting to be part of such an enthusiastic school - and the place is made by the people! Here’s a quick re-cap of recent, on-going and up-coming events:
In February about 40 families attended two SaturPLAY sessions. This is a great opportunity for families to play together and at the same time, get to know other families in our community. Watch for information regarding our last SaturPLAY of the year to be held on May 5th. 
There are 21 students participating in our grade 6 Hockey Program and they have almost completed the on-ice portion of their program. They are now poised to prove their skills in hockey as well as their leadership capabilities by offering intramural programs for other students. Information regarding floor hockey intramurals will be forthcoming. In conjunction with the hockey program, keep an eye on the fence by the West filed, because the grade 5 and 6 students who are not participating in the hockey program, are working on a public art project. They plan to beautify the neighbourhood with three different artistic creations. 
This week all students are busy working with actors and staff from Evergreen Theatre. All classes will work to produce a play to be shown on Friday at 11:15 AM. It is very impressive how this theatre group can take the current learning going on within each class and weave it all together into a finished product. We look forward to seeing what our kids can do and we very much appreciate the funding provided by our hardworking School Council so we can have educational experiences like these. 
Next week, March 12th to the 16th, ask your kids about Mission Impossible, an obstacle course that students look forward to every year. Students become very serious about setting goals to get better each time they enter the course and you might be quite entertained as they describe some of the strategies they have developed for improvement. Actually this is a great analogy for learning; set a goal and develop strategies for achieving that goal! 
Keep in mind that every Thursday is Bread Day. You are welcome to pop into the office on Thursday afternoons and help yourself to a loaf or two of Cobs Bread. We thank Cobs for donating day-old bread and members of Deer Park United Church who pick the bread up for distribution. 
With 2018 well under way, we have begun our planning for the 2018 - 2019 school year. Please let us know if you are moving or do not plan on having your children attend Deer Run next year. This will help immensely as we work on class configurations. As the snow piles grow and grow, and our school traffic increases right along with the snow, here’s a list of a few safety reminders: 
Do not cross in the middle of the street with your child. So often I see parents, hand-in-hand with their children, dodging cars, trucks and buses as they jay-walk from the other side of the street. I fear that one of these times it is going to end badly and I also worry about the safety message your child is really getting.
U-turns are illegal in a playground zone and are also illegal in the middle of the street. I see so many parents choosing convenience over safety and again, I fear that it’s just a matter of time before somebody ends up hurt. 
Remember that 146th Avenue is a Snow Route and when a snow parking ban is declared by the City, no vehicle can be parked along 146th Avenue until the parking ban is lifted. 
Please do not park in the bus zone or the handicap zone directly in front of the school. As always, we are happy to hear from you. Please call the school at 403-777-6840 with any comments, concerns or questions.
