Dragon’s Breath Feb 5 – 9

Feb 4

Dear Parents and Guardians,

The kids in Mme Ko’s class had the honour of having Mr. Mark Madryga visit their class this week. Mr. Madryga will be reading some jokes from a joke book made by our students Monday morning on Global at 7:50am. So set your PVRs!


student led conferences

As mentioned last week…student Led Conferences are coming up on February 7 and 8. Please note that the purpose of Student Led Conferences are meant to give your children an opportunity to share their learning with you. Teachers will work with students to prepare them for this day. This is much different than a parent teacher interview. Teachers will only be there as a facilitator for your child’s presentation. Questions should for the most part be directed towards your child. If you have further questions for your child’s teacher, please make an appointment at a later time. Remember, that your child worked hard to prepare for their student led conference. Please allow them to lead the conference in the manner that they practiced.

Don’t forget that this year we will be celebrating Pink Shirt day on Tuesday Feb 27 (not the 28th because of Science Fair). Students are encouraged to wear pink that day to show their dedication to being kind. Of course, participation is optional, but we hope to see as many people participate as possible.



Our Science Fair is on Wednesday Feb 28. Students from grades 4-7 are participating. Parents are welcome to come and view our student Science Fair Projects from 9:10 – 10:20 or 10:50 – 11:50.


A reminder that we are asking families to bring $5 per student so we can replenish some supplies in the Earthquake Bin. Please click below for more information and send $5 with your child as soon as possible.
