June 10 Updates

Thank You!

Thank you to the PAC for the wonderful staff appreciation lunch! It was a wonderful treat for all staff! This has been a challenging year and we can not thank the Howay families enough for your support and kindness as we navigated this unusual year.

We would also like to thank the PAC for supporting field trips! Our intermediate classes were fortunate to participate in a virtual field trip to the Museum of Vancouver, with a theme connected to immigration, and our primary classes had great fun in a virtual escape room, with a theme connected to water and oceans. Both virtual tours had interactive and engaging activities to test our student’s problem solving skills!

Fun Day

Students and staff have been preparing for a few weeks now and hopefully we can get outside for this day! Fun Day is scheduled for Wednesday, June 16th (weather permitting – alternate date is June 23rd). Please make sure to send students to school with hats and apply sunscreen in the morning before school as most of the day will be outside. If parents are sending sunscreen to school please send only the lotion type as the spray is difficult to manage for younger students.

(June 17th in-class training and lessons, June 18th on-bike training and lessons). A notice will be sent home to Grade 3-5 students with more information and what is needed for the June 18th on-bike day.
