Dear Grizzly Families,
Please see the updates for school events and important dates:
Chinese Lunar New Year 2023
On this Monday, January 23, all students celebrating the Lunar New Year are welcome to wear cultural clothing or red in replacement of their school uniform. Students not participating must be dressed in formal uniform, with the exception of the students who are scheduled for ice skating.
Badminton - Grade 6 to 9 Boys and Girls
Badminton tryouts will continue this week. We have had an impressive amount of students show up for the tryouts in each grade and it will take a few weeks before we will be able to finalize the teams. This year we will host four teams from our school at the badminton divisional with a Grade 6-8 boys and girls junior team consisting of 22 players and a Grade 8-9 team consisting of 22 players. All athletes who are chosen on the school team, will play at the MNP Community Centre (formerly known as the Repsol Centre) during the school day. Divisional dates: Junior Team - Tuesday, March 7th from 9:30am to 2:00pm and Senior Team - Wednesday, March 8th from 9:30am to 2:00pm.
January 23-27 Tryout Schedule
8:00 – 8:50 am
Grade 6/7 Boys
12:30 – 1:10
Grade 8/9 Boys
Thanks to all of the parents who have been able to volunteer for next week. We would like to remind students to remember to dress for the weather and for the outdoor skating rink – mittens/gloves, snow pants, winter jackets etc. On days that students are scheduled to skate, they are allowed to where athletic clothing, instead of their school uniform. For students without their own equipment, skates and hockey helmets will be provided for students. Any students riding the bus with equipment, please remember to bring your skates in a covered back pack etc. - skate guards are encouraged, for the safety of all riders.
Accessing Report Cards through MyCBE – January 30th:
Families will be able to view online student report cards for grade 1-12 students on Jan. 30. Report cards for the 2022-23 school year can be viewed, downloaded and printed.
Parents and guardians can log in to MyCBE to view student information including report cards, comments from your child’s teacher, assignments and grades and attendance information. For best access to information, log in to the MyCBE portal instead of using the PowerSchool app.
Need help? Check out these videos for more information on how to sign in, navigate the portal, toggle between more than one child’s report card, and more.

CBE educators believe that parents and caregivers can inspire their kids to make healthy lifestyle choices and increase protective factors — in order to do so, they need the right tools and information.
Since our understanding of student health and well-being is evolving, it is important for parents to stay up-to-date on the same information so everyone is supporting student success.
The intention of the series is to advance student well-being by raising family and caregiver's understanding of a variety of health-related topics. Each session focuses on reducing risk factors and increasing protective factors.
Additional sessions will be held on the topics of:
Learning About Sexuality (Feb 7)
Understanding Anxiety (Apr 4)
Social Media (May 2)
