December at Sunalta!

Dear Sunalta Families:

We hope you are enjoying the lovely weather with some outside time as well as staying safe and well. As we flip our calendar to December, our staff are excited to find ways to engage our school in some community building activities and holiday spirit. We kicked off the fun with a Google Meet school-wide narrative read by our office staff, Mrs. McCrory, Ms. Vieweger, and Ms. Kennedy. On Thursday Room 10 (Ms Harnett) led 'Wear a Christmas Hat' day and there were some creative headwear and lots of giggles! Some hats even danced and had sparkling lights!

In other news, our yearly school development plan and school results have been posted to our website. We are proud to be a high-achieving school with strong student leadership and positive relationships. Our staff are continuing to discuss, develop a whole school approach to build student capacity in their understanding of their emotions and how to utilize self-regulation skills. In these challenging times, we want to support our students to continue to develop their own flexibility, their ability to manage their own energy and adapt to be able to deal with stress.

To bring the feeling of joyfulness and celebration our students have organized some school spirit events. A description of the day will be posted on your child(ren)'s online classroom.  Make sure to mark them on your calendar and have a wonderful weekend!
