Falkland students participate in activities in support of Remembrance Day. Lest we forget.
On Wednesday, October 31st students are encouraged to wear a Halloween costume to school. Students will be invited to the Gym at 9:20 AM for a costume parade. In addition to ensuring our district and school dress code is followed please consider these three rules when choosing a costume for school: 1. No weapons or weapon-like items, 2. Masks are allowed to be worn in classrooms only (while outside or in the hallways, they need to be off), 3. Keep the gore to a minimum.
Don’t forget to bring your entries for the pumpkin carving and decorating contest. There will be cash prizes for the winners in each category thanks to our fabulous PAC group. Adults are encouraged to participate as well.
Thanks PAC for organizing our school pumpkin patch. The students were excited to take a pumpkin home. We are hopeful these pumpkins will be carved or decorated for the contest on Halloween.
Did you know only 2 salmon out of 4000 eggs have the chance to return home to spawn? On Tuesday, October 2nd students in grades two through eight attended the “Salute to the Sockeye” experience at Tsutswecw Provincial Park. While our visit was early in the season, we witnessed several salmon at the end of their adventure. Students in grades two through six learned about the anatomy of various salmon and how important they are to the ecosystem. We are thankful to staff from Fisheries and Oceans Canada for sharing their knowledge of the salmon lifecycle at the interpretive stations and to Go Grant for the funds to support transportation.
Please see letter to parents sent out September 21st. Please dress for the rainy weather. Students in grade 1 will be joining Mrs. McAfee’s grade k/1 class. Please contact the office for more information.
Looking forward to seeing everyone tomorrow at our welcome back to school potluck dinner. We have two Lego sets and three gift cards to Image Studios Photography ($50, $50, $100) as door prizes. All student names will be entered. You must be at the dinner to claim your prize.
Image Studios will be returning to our school to do individual photos, class photos and our whole school photo on Tuesday, September 25th. We are hoping to send proofs home on Tuesday, October 2nd and orders will be due on Thursday, October 11th.
Our photographer has asked me to remind parents that a full body photo is included in the set provided so please consider your choice of footwear.
Our schedule (subject to change) is individual photos first (youngest to oldest), whole school photo, then class photos (youngest to oldest).
Looking forward to seeing your smiles tomorrow. 🙂
