For the Week of March 13, 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 weekend we also learned that some members of our Bears family are grieving; we will grieve with them, we will support them and we will be there, when they are ready, to welcome them back. No Bear is ever alone, we are here, we are your family.

Book Fair a Huge Success
Mr. Mielke's choice, a throwback to his childhood.
CL was our wishing well winner. All students got to write the book they wanted on a golden ticket and throw it into the wishing well. We drew CL as our lucky winner.
Huge thanks to our SCC for sponsoring a free book for each class. We drew 1 name from each class and they got to pick a book.

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.
