This week, SWL held their first pep rally and it was a smashing success! This was an opportunity for students to come together as a whole school community to continue the work of strengthening relationships with one another and fostering a sense of belonging. After the pep rally, students completed the Terry Fox run. Together students were able to raise $1094 to go towards cancer research.
There are a couple of important messages for next week. The first is around expectations of students during lunchtime. Understanding the benefits of being outdoors, beginning Monday, September 26, all students will be required to spend the second half of lunch, 12:29 – 12:54, outdoors. The only exceptions will be for those students who are attending a club, intramurals or are working with a teacher. Please ensure that students are dressed and prepared for the weather. We will plan according for inclement weather such as rain or temperatures below -20. On those days, students will be able to remain indoors.
Next week, as a whole school community, we will be honouring National Truth and Reconciliation Week. Students will be learning about the history and legacy of residential schools. On September 29th, we encourage all students to wear orange to raise awareness of the very tragic legacy of residential schools, and to honour the thousands of Survivors. To support you with continuing these conversations at home and to help with your own learning, we have created an information sheet for you that includes events that you can attend with your family on September 30th.
