 PRINCIPAL'S MESSAGE

There goes September. We have settled in, students are learning our routines and expectations and learning is well on the way. It is always amazing watching our K students learn all about school. They are learning how to line up, walk in the hallway, how to find the bathrooms and so much more. They really have come a long way and are doing a great job. Thanks to our amazing K team and to parents too for their help and support.

During September we had our grand opening and our meet the staff night. It was wonderful to see so many parents/families out touring the school, meeting our staff and having a hotdog too! We also held our Orange Shirt Day and took some time to learn about Residential Schools and about the importance of tolerance and respect for all. Our school was a sea of orange and it was great to see. In September we had our Terry Fox Coin Drive and Run and were really pleased to earn more than our goal. Our school raised just over $1600.00 for cancer research!

Each month at our school we learn about a virtue. Our Virtue for September was Respect. We talked about what being respectful looks like and sounds like. Our virtue for October is Compassion. Students will be learning that compassion is having kind feelings toward someone who is hurt or troubled. It is about caring and wanting to help even if you don’t actually know the person. Students will also learn it is about being kind and forgiving to someone who has made a mistake.  Being compassionate helps us feel less alone and creates a greater understanding of others and ourselves.

We are looking forward to October, a month of fall colours, turkeys, pumpkins, thankfulness and perhaps a costume or two too.

Please know my door is always open and I would be happy to hear from you if you have questions, concerns or just want to get to know me a little more. Happy Thanksgiving.

Mrs. Taryn Dixon

Principal
