Hi everyone

Welcome to the short week. Remember no school tomorrow! But there are various activities for families on the North Shore. See below in the Community section.

Join us next week Wednesday, the 18th February at 7 pm in the school library for our 3rd CPAC meeting of the year. As the mid year meeting, the focus will be on updates and feedback on various school and PAC funded events. Everybody is welcome and it is the chance to get a quick overview of everything the PAC is involved in and see how the money collected through our ongoing fundraising is being spent.  The agenda can be found here

Remember to buy your  Gold and Black Adult Social tickets. Buy here. We also need volunteers to help out in  30 to 45 minute slots throughout the evening.  Volunteer here. See below for more details about the event. One of our activities at the social is the opportunity to take some fun photo with friends. One way to make photos extra fun is the use of props. If you have items such as fur coats, wigs, funny glasses, fur stoles, top hats, and any costumes which could be fun, could you please bring them to the school next week. A bin will be located in the office where the items can be dropped (please ensure that you label with your name so we can return the items to you).

Last, but not least, if anybody has any old lego they would like to donate for use in the school sick room, please contact Heather.

Remember this weekend is a long weekend as Monday the 9th is a BC Family Day and there is no school. Have a great weekend.

" I was impressed with a parent who I saw waiting patiently for the whistle, and then she mentioned that she was now conditioned to the two whistles before crossing. ."
