From The Office

As I write this there are forecasts today of more snow and another bite of cold weather before our February Break. The forecast includes some nice weather ahead while the students are off school and I know many people are looking forward to that as it feels like we’ve been cooped up a lot indoors this winter with the cold temperatures.

We’re halfway through February and well into the second semester and as normal, there is lots going on in the school and our various programs. Check out the classroom submissions that follow for what’s happening in each of the grades. Our Grade 12s will take part in their second week of Work Experience immediately following the break. We intentionally set it there so as not to break up the learning when they’re back in class this semester. Good luck at work, Grade 12, we hope you learn a lot about the career area you’re experiencing.

We’re also looking forward to hosting Senior Girls’ Curl- ing Provincials at the end of the month. Our Senior Girls’ team won four straight games at Districts in Blaine Lake Feb 7-8, and will be playing at Delisle in Regional Competition Feb 14-15. If you’re able to make it out to cheer them on, they’d be proud to have you there and to see you at the Hanley Curling Rink Feb 28-March 1. The girls who make the team up are Courtney Orsen, Hanna Anderson, Jill Krueger, Ashley Randall and Taylor Black. Also, if you have more questions, or you’re interested in volunteering some time to take part in the Provincials in some form, contact me or Scott Cory for more information.

I’d like to give you a heads up on another couple items for your calendars as well. The grade 9-12 ski trip is scheduled for March 14 to Table Mountain. It’s always a fun day for those students and we look forward to having all the students attend.

March 19th and 20th is scheduled to be our second Tri-Conferences days for parents and students to book time to meet with the teachers. Tri- Conferences will be from 5:00- 7:30pm those evenings and I’d like to remind you it’s a great time to celebrate the accomplishments of your student and recognize them with their parent in the conversation as well. I’ll look forward to seeing many of you here in the school those evenings and I invite you to drop by the office if I don’t see you in the halls.

I’m going to give a final plug for the SCC Community Calendars that are available at the office for ten dollars. There are still a few that families ordered and haven’t picked up.

Have a nice break everyone.

That’s all for now. As always, Mr. Anderson and I would love to talk to you if you have time to drop by the office or give us a call. Take care and I’ll talk to you soon.
