As summer moves to our rear view mirror and we welcome “El otoño"; we are happy to see how much students have readjusted to the routines of school ensuring everyone feels welcome, safe and cared for and diving into the excitement of learning. As I visited classrooms this week, a few students shared some of their favorite learning activities; they include: elections in grade 6, viewing wetlands in grade 5, “la mano" activity to understand stress response in grade 4, “el reto Español" in grade 3, the 5W sentence challenge in grade 2, the months in Spanish in grade 1, and choice centers in Kinder.

Teachers have been gathering some diagnostic assessments to further program for our students as well as engaging in conferences. We would like to thank all parents/guardians that have booked a conference this Thursday or Friday to partner with our teachers in building strong relationships to further support student success. If you were unable to make conferences, please reach out to your child's teacher.

We would like to thank our Escuela Glenmeadows School Society for the first fundraiser of the year – Admazing Savings Ticket Pack, and would like to remind our community that there is a Council and Society Meeting this Tuesday, September 28th at 7pm.

“Mil gracias" to all parents that have encouraged their child to remain off the play structure at the end of the day as we continue to ensure COVID measures are respected.

Our PE Committee has been hard at work organizing next week's Terry Fox run, with the support of our School Council. Por favor, please note that we will not be gathering for this but rather respect our cohorts and run at different times. Students will be engaging in learning about Orange Shirt Day and understanding the Truth and Reconciliations' call to action. Please note that CBE honours Truth and Reconciliation Day so there is no school on September 30th. I wish you all an amazing weekend!/que tengan un buen fin de semana!

Thank you for allowing me to be your acting Principal while Sr. Suarez was away.
