Principal's Message

Finally we can say goodbye to 2020 and look ahead to a new year filled with hope and new possibilities.

As we bring this year to a close, I would like to extend gratitude and sincere appreciation to our families for your ongoing support and encouragement.  Returning to school this fall during the pandemic has been described in many ways that now sound cliche but without your trust and support we would not have been successful.  Thank you for having faith in us and keeping your family healthy!

Thank you to the families who have generously supported the West Dover Christmas hampers.  I know many children will feel very special this Christmas because of your kindness and support.

Thank you also for the many wonderful calorie filled treats that have been delivered to the school for staff to enjoy.  So much exercise will be required in the new year.

We are working hard to prepare our grade four to six students for their online learning in January. Teachers will have sent home a timetable for their class to follow.  Students will be following their normal daily schedule and have attendance taken each class period. If you have any questions teachers will be available via email to help troubleshoot. Fingers crossed Santa brings everyone the commitment to stay home and honour the restrictions to lessen the COVID curve.  We are keeping positive and trust our students will be safe to return to in-school learning the week of January 11.

 

Please note:  we have a non-instructional day January 11 so our Valley Creekers will be returning to in person learning Tuesday, January 12.

 

In the new year you will be able purchase a 2020/2021 yearbook through your PowerSchool account.  This yearbook will be a historical treasure that will hold students' memories of living through this global pandemic. 

Winter Solstice is coming December 21 and marks the shortest day of the year. Elders have shared with us that grandfather sun will be returning for longer periods of time each day following, bringing the promise of warmer weather, continued growth and new life.

“May this season find you among those you love, sharing in the twin glories of generosity and gratitude." Oprah Winfrey

Please take good care of each other and wallow in the gift of time.

See you in 2021!
