May Principal's Message

​One more time, we can do this. Yes we can!

Thank you to the many families who have done a stellar job at supporting their child through either an isolation or quarantine experience.  We understand how shocking and disruptive these sudden changes are for both parents and children.  Teachers are grateful for your compassionate support and understanding.

Although we are sad to move everyone to online learning, we know our collective actions will decrease the number of active COVID cases.  Thank you for diligently following the new restrictions, so everyone's family is safe and healthy.

As we move online, please know we will do our best to keep learning moving forward and our students feeling connected and supported.  Please do not hesitate to let us know if you require additional support. We are anticipating welcoming back all students on Tuesday, May 25! 

As students work from home, I encourage parents to be conscious of how their child is feeling.  For some students, losing the opportunity to come to school to see friends and socialize will negatively impact their emotional well-being.  There is an interesting article I would recommend to you, "Feeling Blah During the Pandemic? It's Called Languising" – The New York Times.  This article speaks about why many of us feel a lack of motivation right now. 

May 18, we invite you to attend our School Council virtual meeting at 7:30 pm.  Valley Creek School is blessed to have a supportive group of parents leading the community fundraising and sharing their voices.  We will send out our meeting invitation closer to the date and would love to have more parents attend.  Early next week, we will be sharing a collage of the many fabulous resources our School Council has purchased with their fundraising money.  We are most grateful and appreciative for their dedication.

Wednesday, May 27, we are hosting a virtual parent orientation meeting at 6:00 pm for our incoming grade four families.   We will share information with parents and answer questions about life in middle school.  On June 10, it is our hope to have the grade threes quickly walk through the school for a mini-tour..  We will send more information to Hidden Valley closer to the date.

Remember, “Difficult roads often lead to beautiful destinations."

Keep healthy and happy.


Proud Principal,

Sheilagh
