Dear Parents and Guardians,
“The more one gives, the more on has." Chinese Proverb
As a school community, we will be practicing and learning about the spirit of generosity this year. Generosity is giving and sharing. It is giving freely because you want to, not with the idea of receiving a reward or a gift in return. Generosity is being aware that there is plenty for everyone. It is seeing a chance to give what you have and then giving just for the joy of giving. It is one of the best ways to show love and friendship. Our AFS community is a very giving, generous community. We have demonstrated generosity in numerous ways this fall including; support for one of our own families as the children heal from a car accident, Terry Fox donations, Orange Shirt Day recognition and supporting each other through Covid-19.
A huge thank you goes out to all of you who participated in our first virtual School Council meeting. Thank you for giving your time so generously in support of Alex Ferguson School. A special thank you goes out to our School Council co-chairman, Amy Maglio and Jaclyn St. Louis along with our School Society Chairman, Becky LeBaron who spent many hours with Ms. Melnyk and myself preparing for the Microsoft Teams virtual meeting.
