Hello Cappy families!
We have had a busy couple of days here at Cappy, cleaning up our spaces, organizing our classrooms, and, doing our last days learning. We even managed to squeeze in our outdoor activities, originally planned for last Friday, but postponed due to rain. Our students had a wonderful time and again, special thanks to our teachers, Mr. Lam and our grade 5's for making this all possible.
During this year it has been so apparent that we have some of the kindest teachers and staff at Cappy. Each day our teachers and staff go above and beyond to make sure our students feel welcomed, safe, respected and cared for. These last years have been extra challenging, and yet through it all, our staff has remained positive and centered, always thinking about what is good for their community and their students.
Some highlights of the year shared by our staff:
- Our amazing new outdoor classroom!
- Going on field trips to the Zoo and Spark
- Studying the Seven Sacred Teachings
- Being able to work with other classes
- Our Food Truck community event
- Fun Week – making slime, dressing comfy, painting
- Being able to have an assembly – it was awesome to see all of our students together😊
- Outdoor activity day
As we wind up the year, I wanted to send a special thank you to you, our community, for your incredible support this year. As a first year principal, I felt very welcomed by you and have been lucky enough to meet many of you face-to-face and talk with you about your students, the school, and other things. We have been through yet another year of ongoing, and often last-minute, changes to Covid-19 restrictions and other changes. It's been a whirlwind, but through it all, I want to share that your students are so kind, resilient and willing to help in so many ways. This community, and our students, are truly special and I am so happy to be at Cappy Smart School.
I am very much looking forward to next school year, with what I hope to be some more returning to normal, more connecting community events, and seeing our students progress. We are also looking forward to offering more extra-curricular opportunities and clubs for our students to thrive even more.
We know there are students and families who will be leaving Cappy School. We will miss you, as you have been an important part of our community. I know that wherever you go, there are many opportunities for new learning as well. If you have not done so, please do let us know in the office if your child will not be returning, as this is an important part of our planning for next school year.
On that note, may you have an amazing summer and we will see your students August 15, 2022 for the next school year. I will be sending out a note to families
