Learning Commons News

This week students have been showing their learning about castles and creating their own virtual structures and incorporating defensive design features of medieval castles. Students in Ms. Dhaliwal’s and Mrs. Lutz’s class created Pink Shirt Day promotions that they will be posting on their student blogs to help spread the word about Anti-Bullying. We also had our first #KindnessCounts nomination for a group of students. Follow our #KindnessCounts tweets @VanierLC

Room Parent Meeting
We look forward to gathering our room parents together for our second meeting of the year on Tuesday, Feb. 10 @ 8:45 a.m. in the staff room.  All interested parents are welcome to attend!   Room parents are wanted and needed for following divisions:  2,3,5,7,8,10,16,19,20.

Jump Rope for Heart

Unknown

Our student leaders will be collecting loonies and toonies during the week of Feb. 10th and our school Jump Off will take place on Feb. 12 in the gym.   Thanks for helping to support the Heart and Stroke Foundation and healthy living!

 

Term 2 Reporting

Please expect the same report card format to be used in Term 2 at GV.   Again, teachers will be using a combination of the regular School District report card or an alternate format.  Intermediate teachers report out to parents by using comments and rating scales, rather than traditional letter grades.  Parents are always welcome to ask questions about reporting by speaking directly with teachers, Mr. Dekerf  or Ms. Porpaczy.
