Despite its status as the shortest month, February is packed with many events, including Valentine’s Day and Groundhog Day. February is also a time for families. This year Family Day is on February 17th and we hope you are able to spend some special time with your family.
Also coming up this month is the Pastor’s Luncheon on Wednesday Feb 19th. This year the children from grades JK thru 8 are encouraged to ask their pastor or any spiritual leader in their church to attend as their guest. Guests have until Feb 13th to reply. We also need volunteers to help on the day of the event so please check SignUp for available positions.
We continue to require pizza helpers who can assist with pizza Mondays from 10:15-11:15am. Any help you can offer in any frequency is greatly appreciated by the PTA and students alike.
Lastly, we are excited to announce that Scott Graham and Gord Deppe from Kids4Kids will be coming in to speak to grades 1-8 next month on March 5th. Their long running anti-bullying assemblies provide usable anti-bullying strategies and inspire leadership. We look forward to welcoming them into our school.
