APRIL 8

Greetings from the Orca Pod

The warmer weather is reminding us all how quickly this year is going! April is zooming by and we ask that you keep a close look at our "Dates to Remember" so that you don't miss anything. The kick-off for Jump Rope for Heart is next Friday, April 15th. Watch for pledge forms coming home. If you choose not to collect pledges, please send back the envelope to the school. The actual Jump Rope for Heart day is Wed. May 4th.

PARENT SATISFACTION SURVEYS: For Grade 4 and 7 Parents ONLY

During the months of February to April, School District 46 is participating in the 2016 Ministry of Education Electronic Anonymous Satisfaction Survey Project in cooperation with all other school districts throughout the Province. A letter with your personal code was sent home last month. Please take the time to give us your valuable feedback: www.bced.gov.bc.ca/sat_survey/access.htm


We wish to thank all of our hardworking volunteers who help to make this school so amazing! Your PAC members are busy in so many ways: hot lunch program; fundraising; playground committee; carnival planning; and a multitude of other things that goes unsaid. Please consider joining our volunteers if you are available.
