We were fortunate to have a beautiful day for our Halloween parade! It was a fun day with lots of great energy and fun Halloween spirit!
Our virtual Remembrance Day Assembly was also a great success! Our Grade 5 students from Division 1 did a great job writing poems and sharing with the whole school through MS Teams. A special thanks to our two Master of Ceremonies, Fred and Megha and to Division 2 for the song they performed – “The White Cliffs of Dover”
REMINDER: Dressing for West Coast Weather
It will be very rare that we have students stay inside at recess and lunch due to inclement weather (We had only 1 inside day so far – Nov. 15th!) so please ensure that your children are dressed to be outside every day for a minimum of 1 hour.
Clothing that supports rain and winter weather: raincoats, mittens, warm winter jackets, boots
Important items for students to keep extras at school: socks and pants
We are encouraging families to have your children leave an umbrella at school as well as extra clothes – students have personal coat hooks and cubbies to keep umbrellas and extra clothes.
F.W. Howay School Learning Plan
The 2021-2022 school year will focus on our structure of support from non-enrolling teachers and support staff (i.e., Learning Support Teacher, ELL teacher, Teacher Librarian, Education Assistants, Child and Youth Care Worker, Indigenous Support Worker and Counsellor) and to develop a literacy focused collaborative model of dialogue.
WHAT WE HOPE TO ACHIEVE
Implement a structure of support that builds on a whole staff collaborative approach to enhance and develop student literacy skills and core competencies of communication and thinking.
