Vanier News March 4 – 8, 2019

Principal / Vice Principal Message

Teachers and students are preparing for parent / teacher / student conferences on the early dismissal day: Tuesday, March 12, 2019.  Your child’s FreshGrade account is an excellent portfolio of the ongoing learning that has taken place this term.  Taking time to visit the classroom, discuss their progress with the teacher and have your child share some of the things they have been working on, is an important part of communicating learning.  We look forward to meeting with parents and discussing your child/ren’s progress.  Please Note: 1:30 pm EARLY DISMISSAL – TUESDAY, MARCH 12, 2019


Ache Brasil – Fine Arts Performing Group

Ache Brasil, a performing arts group, visited Georges Vanier on Friday.  They shared some of the traditional songs, dances, music and stories from Brazil.  The students and staff really enjoyed the performance, and we thank the PAC for paying for the presentation.  All of the students participated by creating rainforest sounds, making rhythms and mimicking drums.  A few of or students were brave enough to join in the stories and dances.  The group was a hit!


Staff vs Girls Basketball Team

Some of the staff and the girls’ basketball team played in a fun game this week.  Many of the students wanted to watch, and paid $1.00 to be part of the audience.  We are raising money to help purchase new school jerseys for our teams.  It was a great event enjoyed by all, and the girls played exceptionally well.  We are very proud of them!

Next week, the boys will be playing the staff.  Stay tuned for an update.
