June 15 Update

principals-messagePRINCIPAL’S MESSAGE

Dear Parents,

Another busy week has flown by.  Special thank you’s to all the parents who put their names forward to sit on the PAC Executive next year.  Congratulations to those individuals who were elected, and thank you to those who were courageous and accepted their names going forward.  I especially want to thank the current executive for running such a challenging and busy meeting.  Galen you are wonderful and very professional.  Karrie, thank you for taking us through the budget.  Thank you to all the parents who came out to participate in the process of an AGM meeting.  They are usually procedural and busy to say the least.

This morning Maple Grove had a seismic presentation to parents at the cookie time meeting… it was nice to see the update of the new school building.

We also welcomed and toured our New Gr 1-7 students. (We already did our Welcome to Kindergarten a few weeks ago).  Thank you to Ms. Tornroos for opening the library to our meetings and to our gr. 6 tour guides.  It was an informative session and we look forward to seeing our new Maple Grove students in the fall.

“Sports Day is a week away!  Sports Day is on Friday, June 22.  On June 22, students need to be in their classrooms at 8:30. Don’t be late! On June 22, students will be dismissed at 1:30.

Students are asked to dress in their team colours (your child’s teacher will tell them what team they are on) and to wear running shoes and appropriate clothing.  The long term forecast is calling for sun on Sports Day so please remember to put on sunscreen and to wear a hat. Parents and guardians are welcome to join us to cheer on the teams.

We would like to extend a special thank-you to all of the high school students from Magee and Point Grey who are coming to help us out.  At last count, 40 high school students have volunteered.  Thank-you, too, to the PAC for providing freezies to the students.”




Leaving school early for summer vacation?

The school will be happy to mail your child’s report card if you provide a self-addressed, stamped envelope.  Otherwise you may give your teacher a note to allow another person to collect the report card.  Any reports cards that are not collected on June 28th will be kept in the office until September.

Lost and Found

Please encourage your child to check the Lost and Found for missing items.  We’ll have to donate and/or dispose of all the items in the next couple of weeks.
