Together we raised $739.40 for the Uganda family and school project. Thank you to the K/Gr 1 class who gave out a challenge to exceed their donations. Most of the classes succeeded in meeting the challenge. A special thank you to a few key students and families who made our total this significant.
Our K/Gr 1 class raised over $40 for the students and their families of the Batwa people in Uganda. They are encouraging our other classes to raise more than them. This challenge is open until tomorrow, Tuesday, Nov 26. If every child brings $2-$3 (or more!), other classes have a great opportunity to be victorious. Thank you for encouraging your child to participate in this Christmas giving project.
Every Christmas, we like to encourage our students (and families) to share the Christmas spirit of giving to those who have much less than we do. This year, we have chosen a project in Uganda for our focus. A group of young p eople from BC, organized by our school authority, is going to Uganda to help a school and improve conditions for students of the Batwa people. A pamphlet with more details is attached and will be coming home to you. Donations are tax deductible and receipts will be issued for amounts of twenty dollars or more. All funds collected for this will be applied directly to the project. Please consider helping these people.
For logistical reasons, we are only collecting monetary donations for this project. Donations must be brought to the school by Nov 21. In addition to the Uganda project, there are a few classes taking part in the Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes, so your child may also have information regarding that project.
Thank you in advance for your generosity in helping students around the world to have an opportunity to read.
Thank you to all who filled out the parent survey regarding report cards. The school board took a look at the results this week and will use the information to help guide us in keeping our report cards informative for you as students and parents.
We have a new online grade book! As Engrade is no longer available, we are working on entering info into the MyEd system. Thank you for your patience with this. We will provide parent training sessions if needed. If you need more info, please see the parent email or contact a school staff member.
Our hearts, thoughts, prayers and support go out to the Nichols family during this time of loss.
Thank you to all parents for filling out the communication survey at the beginning of the year. Results have been discussed and plans are starting to be put in place. We won’t be able to meet everyone’s preference but we hope to continue to improve. We have a new fb page and you may like to follow us on Twitter and Instagram @pcschetwynd
