February was a month of Friendship and Kindness. Our Virtue of the Month was Kindness and we focused on ways we could all demonstrate being kind. It was heart warming to see the kind notes around the school, to hear kind works and to see friendly smiles. Well done Promontory. We will continue all these acts of kindness throughout the year. Our March Virtue is Determination. Students will learn ways to focus energy on a task and to stick with it until it is finished. Determination is using will power to finish something when it isn’t easy. With determination, we can make our dreams come true.
In February we welcome 36 - 3 and 4 year olds, and their parents to our Ready, Set, Learn event. It was a good time for parents to learn ways to prepare their little one for kindergarten.
We recognized Pink Shirt Day and try to focus on being Kind each and every day! We were also treated to a concert performed by Chilliwack Youth Orchestra.
We held a school wide project that involved creating something out of a box. What an incredible assortment of projects! One big part of this project was to not only help students plan but to have them work through ways to solve problems when their project wasn’t quite going the way they hoped. It was a wonderful learning opportunity with fabulous results. This activity ties in with our new curriculum and the Core Competencies of Critical and Creative Thinking.
As always my door is open and I look forward to hearing from you.
