Principal / Vice Principal’s Message

We enjoyed a spectacular Fine Arts performance on Monday and learned more about Canadian artist, Emily Carr.  Later in the week grade 5,6,7 students participated in a full day of dance instruction with SQx Dance Company and shared their learning during a impromptu performance.

On Friday, at our Monthly Assembly, we learned more about student leadership initiatives, upcoming Christmas activities, and honoured our Primary Stars.   Please see important dates and details below.

This coming Thursday, Dec. 8th @ 1:25 – 2:25 is our early dismissal day where students and family members will be welcomed into classrooms to discuss learning progress on FreshGrade.  Please come prepared with a personal tech. device, questions and maybe some student learning goals.

Student Leadership

Some of our Leadership Students had the opportunity to attend WE Day Vancouver (www.weday.com). It was an amazing experience. This year, we plan to make a difference in the world by supporting local and global issues. Please join us in our efforts to Scare Hunger and bring non-perishable food items to school during the week of Dec. 5th-9th, to support the Surrey Food Bank. Last year we collected 700 pounds of food! Save your quarters and get ready to guess how many items are in the Genius Jar. Bring a non-perishable food item for a bonus guess! All money raised will go to support the Surrey Food Bank. Please visit https://www.surreyfoodbank.org/donors/top-items to find a list of top 10 most needed items.

Did you know that Zinc Saves Lives? Simply send clean batteries that no longer work with your son/daughter to school at your convenience. We will be collecting used batteries all year. Find our more at http://www.zincsaveslives.com/.
