With February behind us after our winter break, we returned to classes rested and rejuvenated!
We look forward to the many exciting, challenging, inviting and informational activities our school has planned for March that will carry us right up to the Easter break. In the next weeks ahead we will get to enjoy some wonderful music when Singing with Sylvia comes to our school. We get to share knowledge and learning information with our parents, students and teachers with the upcoming conferences for the second half of the year. We have lined up some outdoor activities to challenge us as we take our learning outside to test our knowledge and our physical abilities in our local surroundings.
One of the big activities that we all look forward to is the annual Winter Feast. Our school (along with our SCC) puts on this event for our school families and community members as a thank you for their continued support. This FREE feast will be held on Friday, March 16th at Pike Lake Hall beginning at 12 noon. As you are an honored community and family member, we invite you to join us for this special FREE luncheon that the students will prepare with skills learned in their daily nutritional snack program. This meal will allow you to see our school in operation at its best while enjoying a wonderful student made buffet! We kindly ask you to contact the school (306-668-4808) to RSVP or to find out more information.
We are very fortunate to have two wonderful student teachers joining our teaching team here at Pike Lake School. We warmly welcome Miss Madison McLean and Miss Jordanne Estergaard to our school family. These ladies will be with us each Tuesday and Wednesday until the end of March and will progressively increase their time teaching and learning from our seasoned staff and students. We are happy to have these upcoming teacher candidates at our school to learn from and with us!
Our “Saddle Up and Read” Scholastic Book Fair was once again a great success. From all the books that were sold from this Fair our school was able to raise a profit of $900.00 worth of Scholastic books for the school library. We truly thank everyone who supported our fundraiser and encouraged young readers with all the purchases made! We couldn’t have done it without you! Special thanks to Mrs. Knackstedt for all her extra organizing work and volunteer hours she donated to make this Book Fair the success that it is!
