Blast Off for Carnival!

The Virtue of May is ‘Honesty’ at VCE. A big thank you to Mrs. Doherty and Mrs. Zuckernick for running the assembly. We were impressed with a presentation of skits that were written, directed and performed by the leadership students.

Wild Safe presentations hosted by Meg Toom was a great success. The students learned about habits of different wildlife and reducing human-wildlife conflict. As well, The O.W.L. (Orphaned Wild Life) Rehabilitation Society visited VCE with an owl and a peregrine falcon. The students learned about the rehabilitation and release of injured and orphaned birds.

A huge thank you to the staff and students for wonderful student-led conferences where the students were able to communicate and show the parents about their learning. The beautiful art display in the gym was a highlight. The students practiced art in various styles and media.

Just a reminder to not miss the Scholastic Book Fair finishing today. There are many interesting books to be explored.

The plans for the annual Carnival are under way. The theme for this year is Space. If you would like to help, please talk to Amy Reid or one of the PAC members. It promises to be an exciting and fun event. The carnival will be on May 22nd between 4:30 and 7 pm. A big thank you to all PAC members for putting on this great event.

The Squamish Rotary club and an RCMP are hosted the annual Bike Rodeo. Students brought their bikes and helmets to get their bikes checked in preparation for the season. Thank you to Mr. Young for hosting.

Today, Mr. Young and Mrs. Zuckernick’s classes are off to learn about the universe at the HR MacMillan Space Centre. They are also be building rockets there.

On, May 20th, the students of HSS and VCE will be having a Skype session with the students of Nanyuki, Kenya on the topic of endangered species and wildlife conservation. If your child is interested, please ask them to come and talk to me. We will be Skyping at 6 am Canadian time (4 pm Kenyan time).

The SAM Project would like to thank all donors for the books, toys and soccer cleats as well as enough funds for purchasing six goats in Zambia.

Camp Summit is coming up on the 27th to 29th for Mrs. Dawson and Mrs. Doherty’s classes. We are sure that the students will have a memorable time.

The after school activities mentored by HSS students continues to be a success. In May, we have floor hockey and beading on Tuesdays and California kickball and crafts on Wednesdays between 3:30 and 4:30 pm. These activities are open to Gr.3 to 6 students.

Just a reminder that there is a Pro-D day on Fri, 15th and Mon, 18th is Victoria Day. We hope that you enjoy the long weekend!
