From the Office

While I write this, there is more snow falling from the sky to add to what we have on the ground but some more temperate days ahead if I can believe the forecasts. I know many people are looking forward to that, as it feels like we have dealt with a lot of up and down temperatures this winter.

We’re at the end of 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 are taking part in their second week of Work Experience this week. We intentionally set it here again 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.

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 6 to Table Mountain. The Grade 7 and 8 ski trip is scheduled for March 11. It’s always a fun day for those students and we look forward to having all the students attend.

March 18th and 19th 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. Swimming lessons for grade K-6 students during the school day at CC Pool was a nice success I think. The lessons wrapped up this week and I’m sure Mrs. Prosofsky and I will talk about setting up more in the future if you’re interested. You can contact CC Pool for more information.

There haven’t been any decisions made lately for further work being scheduled in our school on the structural upgrades. When more happens I’ll fill you in.
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 – we’ll assume next year that you’re not interested in ordering one. I’d also like to send a large thank-you to our SCC for helping us pur- chase some comfortable seating upstairs in the elementary hallway for a new reading spot for students.

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.

Mr. Tucker
