Happy long weekend to all our families! Here are a few items to note:
Mon, May 23 – No School
Wed, May 25 – Last swimming day (a fun day!) for K-Gr 6
Thu, May 26 – Garbage pick-up day – We encourage all our students to participate and are looking for parent volunteers as well, particularly for K-2 & Gr 3-4. Service is an integral part of our educational program as we develop young people to be great community citizens.
This is an important day for us to give back to our community, making our environment healthier and prettier for us and for others. Our staff are thankful for this opportunity to serve alongside our students and have fun while doing it!
Fri, Jun 3 – Field trip to WAC Bennett Dam – This will be a school-wide field trip and parents are invited to participate.
Tue, Jun 28 – School Awards Day – Parents are invited to attend our awards ceremony. More information to come.
Full accreditation for six more years – In addition to our BC Ministry of Education evaluation completed this past fall, we recently completed our full school evaluation by the Seventh-day Adventist Education system, which has over 900 schools in North America. The accreditation team found we showed high quality student learning and demonstrated goals and plans for continuous school improvement. We are thankful to have received full accreditation for another six years and appreciate each staff member for a great job done! Thank you also to our parents and students who participated in the surveys and interviews for the accreditation team. They said our students represented the school well.
Plans for high school students – We are reviewing goals, classes and plans with our high school students for next year and future years. More details to come about an information session for Gr 6-8 parents and individual appointments for Gr 9-11 students.
We hope each family has an enjoyable long weekend and wishing our Grade 12’s well on their class trip!
