Chocolate Found on Playground

Someone scattered chocolate eggs all over our playground today and students were lucky enough to find one! 

We also hung our school mosaic today!  Every student and teacher contributed one square.  The theme of the piece is 'What is my role in Truth & Reconciliation'. 

Good afternoon!

Hello families!

1.  The SCC fundraiser wraps up tomorrow so please send your orders for summer plants. 

2.  Congratulations to both of our basketball teams!  Both teams advanced to the play-offs and represented our school well.  The girls lost in the south semi-final to a very strong team (Perry School) and the boys defeated the Ready Rams to secure the championship title.  Many thanks to our volunteer coaches - Dave Severson, Greg Toews, Jayne Krueger, Lorraine Barron-Wright and Avery Dunbar.  A special thank you to teacher supervisors Mme Champ and Mme Paterson.  It was a memorable season for all.

3.  On Tuesday, March 28, 2017, at the public meeting of the Regina Board of Education, the Director of Education, Greg Enion shared information relating to the 2017-18 Provincial Budget.

What a rude return to winter today.  Remember to dress your kids appropriately as we will be going outside whenever the windchill is -25 or less. 

Congratulations to our Boys' Basketball team - they won the city-wide Basketball Beat tournament on Saturday.  They play as a team and it is bringing them great success.  Thanks to volunteer coaches Dave Severson and Greg Toews.

Correction and Kindergarten News

1.  Pink Day is in fact in 2 weeks - sorry for the confusion in yesterday's blog.  Students and staff will be wearing pink shirts for our assembly on Thursday, February 16th.

2.  We are taking Kindergarten registrations so please pass on the news to any neighbours with young children.  Our Open House for new Kindergarten families will be April 5th at 7:00.  Please help spread the news!

Have a good weekend,

Mme Revet

 

Good afternoon!

1.  Please take notice of the new traffic signs in front of the school.  The 'no parking' signs have been replaced by 'no stopping' signs as our buses and taxis were having difficulty finding places to park. With an increase in student population comes an increase in transportation needs so we simply need more room to ensure that the students are safe getting on and off their buses/taxis.  Our children's safety is paramount but you should also know that tickets have already been issued on several occasions. 

2.  Please keep sending warm clothes for your children as recess may only be 15 minutes but bare hands and ears do get uncomfortable.

3.  Remember - wear pink for Pink Day next Thursday!

4.  As many of you have already heard, I am moving to Ecole Wascana Plains for the 2017-2018 school year.  Mme Youck will take on the administration responsibilties for the final months of this school year as I will transition to the new school at the end of April.  Mme Youck and I are already preparing so that the transition is as seamless as possible for our community.  

Take care,

Mme Revet
