Vanier News: April 14th

Principal/Vice Principal Message:

It was a busy week at Georges Vanier. Students have been working hard as we have begun the third term of learning. Parents are encouraged to connect with the classroom teacher with any questions about your child’s learning. Students have been reminded to dress in appropriate clothes for April showers (boots, jacket, hood) as we will be going outside as often as possible at recess and at lunch. Thank you parents for your on-going support! 

Our running club got off to a great start! Parents are reminded to ensure that students have a safe way home when the running club ends at 3:00 pm. All parents are invited to come and run with the students! Our badminton team and our ultimate team have been working hard and we look forward to more games this week. 

On Thursday, April 17th, we invite all students and staff to dress in traditional attire as we acknowledge Vaiskakhi at our school-wide assembly at 9:30 am. We would like to wish our community a very happy Vaiskakhi!

School will be closed on Friday April 19th and Monday April 22nd for the Easter holiday.

Please continue to say hello if you see me outside or drop by the office. I enjoy connecting with all parents and feel so fortunate to be a part of the Georges Vanier community.

Mrs. Lianne McBride and Mr. Brian Newbold

Pictures of the Week: 

Grade 6 and 7 students in Division 1 (Mr. Abraham) displayed their learning this week for the staff and students at Vanier. Students created a ‘prototype’ based on their Genuis Hour projects. Students were able to explain why they chose to create the different protoypes and what they found challenging and/or surprising during the process.

  • Running Club is continuing on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday afternoons from 2:30 to 3:00 pm. Parents are welcome to run with the students.
