We’re at that time of year again when the muck, the mud, the puddles and the slushy snow are causing some havoc with our playground as it warms up outside. Believe me I’m not complaining as I know we’re all loving the warm temperatures. This might be my plug for investing in a pair of splash pants for the elementary kids who go outside or see if last year’s pair still fits.
It’s a busy week again with the parent teacher student conferences on Wednesday night (5:00-7:30pm) and after school Thursday night (3:30-6:00pm) in the school. What a great time to come learn about how your students are doing and what wonderful learnings their involved in. We also are holding our annual Knight to Remember Wednesday evening during the interviews as well going from 3:15-7:00pm. Please keep in mind there is no school on Friday.
Drama is running a little later this spring. Drama night and the Dessert Theatre performance is scheduled for April 8 and 9. They go to regionals later that week.
Our Athletic programs are also moving right along as well. The Senior boys had a great season and competed at Regionals in Regina last weekend. What a great season there! Curling was wrapped up after our teams again represented well at Districts. Way to go everyone! Badminton is in full swing as well with junior and senior playoffs the second week of April.
A big thank-you goes out to the School Community Council for all their support of our school and it’s programs! They made a motion this winter to pay for the purchase and install of two new water-bottle filling water fountains in the school and the students are loving them. Thanks again for all that you do, SCC members!
That makes me think about the Community Calendars – there are some left over that were ordered but still haven’t been picked up. Please do so as soon as you can.
The Community raffle tickets are due back at the school at March 29 so I can send them in at the end of the month. Thank you to everyone for all your offered help to sell them. There are some tickets left for those who still would like to purchase one. All tickets books whether sold or not should be turned into the school March 29.
Well, that’s all for now. For further information and updates from the students and classrooms, check out our school website at http://blogs.spiritsd.ca/hanley/. 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.
