For the Week of April 3, 2023
Working together; succeeding together.
We acknowledge the harm of colonialism and the residential school system and commit to working together toward reconciliation and forging a better path forward.
This is a fitting time to reflect on that. For those that observe Easter from a religious perspective, the last 40 days have been a time of fasting and charity. It has been a time of self-denial, to deepen our connection with ourselves, our families, and our faith. This is fitting as I think the last 2 years have been a long (albeit not always by our choice) period of self-denial. It was a time when we did not do all that we wanted to do and at the time that created suffering on a variety of levels. However, like the suffering of lenten sacrifices, it was not in vain. It has led us to deeply appreciate the small things that we had, perhaps, taken for granted in past. Like lent, it ended with a type of Easter, a new beginning, a fresh start, a new birth. We have emerged with a greater sense of our need for each other and a greater appreciation for the small traditions that quietly filled our time. It is wonderful and has made the experiences, as we experience them for the first time in a long time all the more wonderful.
It is my hope that this Easter, we can once again experience more things for the first time in a long time and fully embrace our time with each other. From my family to yours, Happy Eatser!

Volunteers and Athletes of the Month
The volunteer for this month is none other than our very own PPCS Principal. Mr. Mielke has been a big contributor in organizing and running the kitchen canteen for our last couple of sporting events. Students enjoy being in there working along side him and picking up some life skills about cooking, prep and meal planning along the way. He is also now coaching Jr NBA which our younger students are excited about. Thank you for your leadership and support for Bears Athletics.
Athlete of the month is Kayden Wasylyk. He has shown a huge amount of growth and improvement over a season and a half in playing with the Sr. team. He asks questions, tries to do things correctly and is dedicated to improving his shooting and footwork. He wants to be a good player and works hard to be just that. Good job Kayden
Athlete of the month is Cruze Reed. Cruze is just coming into basketball but seems to be enjoying it to the point where he is found in the gym with a ball in his hands on most days that end in Y. His size, speed, and competitiveness make him an asset to his team. Congrats Cruze.
