Principal / Vice Principal’s Message

We had an eventful week with Welcome to Kindergarten, Photo Day and Sports Day!  Please enjoy lots of great photos at the bottom of our blog this week!   Photo day will continue on Wednesday for div. 7, grade 7 and our team pics.

This Tuesday our GV Track & Field team will be attending the Surrey District Meet at Bear Creek Park.  We wish our team well and thank our coaches, parent volunteers, and our Horizon Church friends for supplying bus transportation and 10 additional volunteers.

On Thursday, staff from the City of Surrey will be visiting grade 4-7 classrooms to talk about summer programs and fun opportunities.

I Spy, If You Can Dream It and Celebrating Readers

Kindergarten students have been exploring I Spy books. We have been using the pictures to search carefully for shapes, colours and items. Students used colourful miniatures to create and photograph their own I Spy pages. We will use these next week to challenge each other’s searching skills.

Students work cooperatively to design their own I Spy challenge.

Using the green screen, three classes demonstrated how expressive and creative they can be. Some students imagined themselves as future doctors, engineers or pilots. We also re-created some iconic images and put them in a video to share at the Primary Assembly. Lots of fun!

If you can dream it… from Anna Crosland on Vimeo.

We decided to advertise some of the great books in the Learning Commons at the front of the school. Students sketched their current favourite book covers including the author’s name and book title and we re-created them on the sidewalk. It was a great way to celebrate our reading.
