Happy Spring Break everyone!  Your child has been given a reading chart to keep track of the books they read during the break but other than that, they are to rest and spend some time with their families!  May you all have a blessed break and we will see you Monday, March 27th!

Skating Monday!

If your child wants to bring comfortable clothes for skating, please get them to bring it in their backpacks but they must come to school in uniform.  We will change before we walk over and then when we get back, change again into our uniforms.

Thanks so much!

Good morning!

Just a reminder that today is Anti-Bullying Day at school.  Please wear your uniform but you can wear a pink top:)

We will start presenting our TEDx talks on Thursday!  I can't wait to hear them, the students have been working so diligently on them!

Student Led Conferences coming up Thursday and Friday!  See you then! (Friday=No School)

Skating on Monday so please remind your child to bring their skates and/or helmet if they have them:)

Hi everyone!

I hope you all had a Family Weekend and hopefully was able to do some fun family activities.

a) Your children have been working very hard on their Ted Talks and handed in their rough drafts today.  I will look at them tonight and give them back tomorrow.  If you are able to, could you please look over it with your child and help them create a good copy.  We are working at putting it on cue cards next week and then presenting to the class starting next Thursday, February 23rd for those who are ready.  Thanks so much for your help!

-Just a reminder to please get your skiing/snowboarding forms into the office by Monday, December 5th:)

-We are thinking about doing "Secret Santa" in the classroom and discussed the potential options.  Some students have shared they do not want to participate, which is fine, and if you would prefer your child to opt out, please let me know.  (I think we will put a $5/$10 limit on it)  They will be assigned a prayer partner however to pray for over the Christmas season:).

-Our Advent Assembly is on Thursday, December 15th at 2pm.

-December 16th 12pm dismissal and the start of Christmas Break!

-I will be getting married on December 31st and will be taking some time off at the beginning of January for my honeymoon.  Be reassured that I am meeting with the substitute teacher before leaving to thoroughly explain my expectations and plans.  I will no longer be Miss Botelho but rather Mrs. Sène! I know this will take some getting used to for me and for the students;)

Hi everyone!

Every year the grade 6 class is in charge of the Poinsettia sales to help raise some money for our school.  Unfortunately only two parents have responded and that isn't enough to keep this fundraiser going.  If you can help at all, please please contact Lucia Borkowski.

Thanks so much for all you do! or at 604-575-3123
