Good morning! It is nice to welcome March and hopefully put the last of the really cold weather behind us.
Thank-You from The Manor Village at Fish Creek Park
You may recall that our students prepared Valentines for the residents of The Manor Village, and these were delivered to the residents on February 10th. Last week we received many “thank-yous" from the residence in the form of beautifully handwritten cards addressed to our students expressing sentiments like “bringing smiles to our hearts," “your cards made us feel loved," and your cards “put smiles on all our faces and few teas as well." Accompanying these were several photographs of the masked residents holding their Valentine's, eyes smiling. The messages and images brought a profound sense of pride in our students and our learning community who were able to share some joy with our neighbours in what is for many, a difficult and lonely time. We are showcasing these messages and images in our gathering area for our students to see how their small act of kindness made a huge difference in so many people's lives.
On March 11th and 12th, our teachers will be hosting virtual individual learning conferences to discuss current learning with families. The system will be open for booking today at 4:00. Conferences run for Kindergarten students on Thursday afternoon, Thursday evening and Friday morning. Conferences for grade 1-4 will occur on Thursday evening and Friday morning. If you receive this message, you will also receive an email from the booking system directly as another reminder.
Spring Picture Day
Thursday, March 11th is our Spring Picture Day hosted by Lifetouch. This is an opportunity for students that may have missed our fall photo day and for students that have joined Evergreen later in the year to have their photo taken and to be included in our yearbook. Please note that there will not be class photos (the group together) this year due to our Covid protocols.
Have a marvellous start to March!
