VICE PRINCIPAL'S MESSAGE
We had a great return to school in January with Numeracy Month! There were many fun activities with counting coins at school. Many students brought in their Grocery Bingo cards and they really enjoyed sharing what they learned about the price of the items. There were many discussions about how much milk cost at the different stores!
I Love to Read month begins on February 1st. We are looking forward to another fun filled month with literacy activities and special guest readers!

I LOVE TO READ!
February is I Love to Read Month. Our theme this year is The Amazing Race. Students will be encouraged to read every day after school. Every time they read for a certain length of time (depending on their grade level) they will receive a point for their class. Please fill in the reading tickets that the students take home so that they will get their reading points and be entered to win the reading prizes. The class who has the most points at the end of the month will win a dodgeball game against the teachers. As well there will be a draw at the end of the month for grand prizes. We hope this will be a month filled with the enjoyment of reading!
Here are some other exciting I Love to Read activities planned for the month:
Jan. 31 - Assembly - Period 1
Feb. 9 - Wear a Word Day
Feb. 12 - 9 a.m. Guest Reader - Corny Rempel
Feb. 15 - Steinbach Pistons Players Read to Students
