Students of the Week

Two SOTW winners this time around, both for single yet important reasons.  SOTW #1 is Brayden!  During our surprise fire alarm on Wednesday, he was a model student when it came to following expectations.  He was the only one to remain in one place and focus on his job, which is to stand in line and await further instructions.  Great job, Brayden.  I hope others will follow your lead in future fire drills.

The second SOTW award goes to Jenna for kindness.  Jenna voluntarily gave up her slushy drink to Austin when his was spilled and he was left without any at Adventure Bay.  It brought a smile to an otherwise disappointed student.  Exceptional compassion there, Jenna!

Weekly Digest

Dear Parents/Guardians,

Another field trip in the books, in what will likely be a record year for field trips!  (At least two, possibly three still to go!)  Thank you to those who were able to join us at Adventure Bay today.  Expect to see photos sometime in the next 24 hours.

Cancer Awareness Week has officially been launched.  We’ve all been touched by cancer in some way, some more than others.  Students were given a small envelope for a donation, which can be returned any time up until Friday.  Every coin adds up so even the smallest of contributions helps.  Students are also encouraged to wear yellow on Friday in support of the Canadian Cancer Society’s annual campaign.

Many students have completed their Vimy soldier research but a few have some finishing up to do.  I’ve added the links to the homework post so that they can finish off for Monday.  The next step is to create a post card of thanks that will be laminated and prepared for delivery this July when I return to Vimy Ridge.  I also plan on writing an article about this experience and submitting it to Our Canada magazine.  With any luck, we’ll be published a second time!

Have a great weekend!
