Principal’s Message- Moving Forward to the Home Stretch
As we move into the month of March, anticipate spring break, and look forward to warm sunny days, we also realize that the academic school year has gone by very quickly. March is a busy, short month with parent conferences on March 19 from 8:00 am – 1:00 pm and 4:00- 8:00pm.  Parents are asked to book an individual 15 minute conference time with the teacher through their CBE account beginning on March 14. The conference is the opportunity for parents to meet with their child’s teacher in conversation about their child’s learning. Students may be a part of the conference and will have the opportunity to show and talk with their parent and teacher about their learning and work. Parents may also wish to reserve a time to talk with the specialist teachers, Ms. Cotton- Music, Mr. Van Sluys- PE and Mrs. Bitz- Resource.

Friday March 20 is a non-instructional day for students while teachers will be planning for the spring term.

Our gymnastics education unit will be starting at McKenzie Towne School on Monday, March 2th to March 18th.  We are fortunate to have a variety of equipment that has been purchased through parent fund-raising efforts.  Throughout the year, during physical education classes, teachers have worked to provide students with a variety of experiences to establish safety routines and promote cooperation and good sportsmanship. Within all of our units, the children have had many opportunities to develop their individual skill level, share their accomplishments and experience the satisfaction of teamwork in a safe environment. Within the gymnastics unit of instruction, the following expectations and guidelines will be in place to ensure student safety:
Student Expectations:
1.    No jewelry, loose clothing, skirts or dresses. No belts.
2.    Bare feet, running shoes or gymnastics slippers are acceptable.
3.    Tie back long hair.
4.    Students work independently or in small groups QUIETLY to minimize distraction and optimize focused movement
5.    Children do what they are comfortable doing. No showing off or daring is allowed.
6.    Although some students have had private gymnastics training, there will be no aerial stunts such as dive rolls, aerial somersaults (flips), head springs or hand springs as these activities are not part of the prescribed gymnastics curriculum.
Remember to check the lost and found. Items
left unclaimed before spring  break will be
sent to charity.
I look forward to meeting and talking with you at the school during these and other events.  As parents, you are the fibre that holds our school together and that makes our school community strong.
I hope that everyone has a relaxing spring break!
Dr. Lorraine Slater
