Our Volleyball season is well underway and we are pleased to announce that we have a boys Grade 6/7 team. The students are developing skills and have been successful in winning a game here and there. Our teacher sponsors are Ms. Harrington, and Mrs. Jensen.
Game Ready / Life Ready
The grade 3 class has just finished their 4-week program with Joe and Game Ready. This week our grade 7 students will begin their 3-week program. The students participate in various physical activities in order to promote healthy living and team building. An important aspect of self-regulation is body awareness – knowing how to fuel your body properly for athletic training. We are very excited to have this opportunity for our students to participate in the Game Ready program. (http://www.gamereadyfitness.ca)
February is Kindness Month
Inspired by Michele Borba’s book Building Moral Intelligence (www.micheleborba.com)
This month’s theme is KINDNESS – demonstrating concern about the welfare and feelings of others. We began the month with our Kindness Assembly and will complete many acts of kindness as a whole school. We will end the Kindness month with our PINK SHIRT DAY (Wednesday, February 22nd) (http://pinkshirtday.ca) message – “MAKE NICE”
Some of the KINDNESS videos that we’ve shared with our students:
Scheduled for Tuesday, February 28th (AM). Communication will be sent home to all parents from the Safe and Caring Schools Department (District Office) that will provide an explanation of the purpose of the lockdown drill. Teachers will be discussing with their class all procedures related to a lockdown within the coming days.
