Principal / Vice Principal’s Message
It has been wonderful to reconnect with our community and welcome new families into Georges Vanier school!  Throughout last week, students have been rotating through grade group activities centred around our “We Are All Connected” theme. Office staff have worked diligently to collect accurate enrolment data so that we can plan and finalize balanced student groupings within B.C. class size and composition limits.  On Friday, the Surrey District approved 26 divisions for our school.  This means that students can expect to be in classes by early this week.  We greatly appreciate your support and understanding during this complex process.

We want to thank our friends at Horizon Church for supporting many of our families this summer and for running Gym Blast this past Thursday and Friday at GV.  Students really enjoyed the lively and fun filled games and physical activities led by Horizon volunteers.

Student Planner:

We encourage all students in Grades 1-7 to purchase a School Planner at a cost of $5.00. Included in the planner is our school code of conduct, school calendar and school district information. We find this to be an excellent tool for facilitating home/school communication, as well as for developing our students’ organizational skills. 

Teachers will begin collecting Planner money when students are assigned to classes later this week.
