SPRING FESTIVAL – is on Thursday May 24th from 4:30-7:00 pm. Join us for some Helium Balloons, Henna Art, Balloon Animals, Cake-Walk, a ton of games, and the ever-popular Bingo!
Please check with your child’s teacher about volunteering for a 20-30 min shift. This is a wonderfully-successful community event and would not occur without your much-appreciated volunteerism.
All fundraising profits from Spring Festival help support extra-curricular programming and events.

SCHOOL DOORS – reminder to all students to use your proper door when coming to school and these are not the front doors! Even if it is a red recess, you still need to use your proper doors. Parents, you need to drop your child off close to their own doors, NOT THE FRONT DOORS!!!!

CELL PHONES AT VENTURE HEIGHTS –
K-4 Cell Phone Usage: Due to the abundance of the technology that is provided at school, there is no need to send a device to school. These devices are only brought so kids can listen to music or play games neither of which are a necessity in the school day. If emergencies arise, parents can always get in touch with their children by simply phoning the office. Some exceptions for individual classroom teachers may be made in coordination with the school administration.
Grade 5-8 Cell Phone Usage : Due to the abundance of the technology that is provided at school, there is no need to send a device to school. If emergencies arise, parents can always get in touch with their children by simply phoning the office. Additionally, all classrooms now have a telephone, so connecting with students will be even more efficient. Some exceptions for individual classroom teachers may be made in coordination with the school administration.
Cell phone use will not be permitted inside the school building during school hours. Students who have cell phones in classrooms or in the hallways will have them taken away and given to the homeroom teacher. Phones can be retrieved at the end of the day. Third time offenders will be dealt with by the school administration.
BUS LANES – the number of vehicles driving in bus lanes after school is increasing significantly. What is worse is that we are seeing daily occurrences of vehicles driving past buses with their stop arms out. This is a very serious safety concern and it needs to stop. The RCMP will be increasing their watch of this situation and people will be getting ticketed.
This is a very simple problem to fix – No One Needs To Drive In The Bus Lanes!
Gr. 4-8 Marafun – practices will run every Thursday from 3:20-4:00 pm. Click here for more information and registration details: Marafun note
Gr. 7/8 Track and Field – practices have been on-going and the athletes are enjoying every minute of it. Track Meet at Griffiths Stadium in Saskatoon is Wednesday May 16th.
