It seems that as the weather brightens up and we delve into Term 3, our school calendar becomes very active with exciting events and wonderful learning opportunities. Be sure to keep a close eye on weekly VanierNews updates, our SurreySchools web page, and the calendar at the front of the school.
Remember that this Monday, April 18 in a Professional Day, when teachers throughout Surrey will be learning more about the New Redesigned B.C. Curriculum. Click here for more information.
Learning Commons News
We have had a great week celebrating reading in the LC during our Book Fair. We read some great new titles and had fun with Augmented Reality Dinosaurs. Students practiced valuable life skills by counting out money, figuring out best value, customer service and retail display. There were lots of prizes too!
Profits are used to enhance our library book collection and to support other Learning Commons initiatives. Thank you to everyone who visited.
Thank you to Ms. Crosland and our student volunteers for running a very successful Scholastic Book fair!
Walk to School Wednesdays
Please encourage your child to walk to school (everyday), but especially on Wednesdays as we will be starting to collect house team points!
From 8:15-8:30 on Wednesday mornings members of the Leadership team will be in 3 locations wearing their green shirts. Students who walk to school will be encouraged to go and see them for a stamp. Leaders will be at both crosswalks in the front of the school, and near the Skynet at the back of the school stamping hands of students who walked to school.
As the weather is getting nicer, we encourage parents to leave their cars at home and walk with their children to school everyday, but especially on Wednesday.

Student’s in Divisions 5 and 6 are learning how to become young entrepreneurs by, creating our own business plans and designing our own products.
