“Education is the most powerful weapon you can use to change the world.” BB King
It is hard to believe that the end of the year is just around the corner. This year, we have grown as a community and the students have learned so much. Now is a time of transition as we get ready for the new school year. Teachers will be sending home student work and materials so please ensure your child has a bag big enough to carry home their work and learning artifacts. Please look on your child’s Google Classroom for more information. Report cards will be released electronically and parents can access them through their MY CBE account on our school website. They will be available to download as of June29th to July 28th if parents want a paper copy.
On Monday, we will have our Sports Day so send your child dressed for the weather including a hat, sunscreen and to dress in layers if they are wearing a “jersey” as the students will be spending several hours outside and it may be hot. Thank you to the volunteers who are supporting us. It sure is helpful.
This week, our lost and found will be packed up on Thursday and taken to donation. We will be having students go with their classes to claim any items by Wednesday. If you know your child is missing something, we invite parents to come and check it out before it is packed up.
This week will be having many events as a community. For our final week, we will be having various events for students at a
- Monday, June 26th – Sports Day - Jersey Day – Wear your favorite team jersey or your Coventry Hills shirts

On Wednesday, June 21, Coventry Hills School renewed our commitment to Truth and Reconciliation through education. We continue to maintain our focus on the Seven Sacred Teachings and look forward to our work with Land based learning.
“In recognition of National Indigenous Peoples Day,
and in alignment with the CBE Education Plan,
Coventry Hills School
acknowledges and supports the Truth and Reconciliation Commission (TRC) Calls to Action, and makes the following commitment to action for the 2023-2024 school year:
Our school will utilize the Seven Sacred Teachings to strengthen and build upon our shared understanding of character, community and cultural inclusivity. A focus within this commitment will be to use Land-based learning in an integrated way with our curricular studies across the grades.
In making our commitment, Call to Action #63.1 and #63.3 offered inspiration.

We have posted on our website our commitment to the Truth and Reconciliation with a presentation sharing our learning for each grade group this year. In fall, 2023 we will be working with Chantal Chagnon, an Indigenous storyteller and artist. We look forward to learning from her teachings and continuing to develop our story as a learning community.
