Principal’s Message – October 7, 2017

Posted October 7, 2017

I can’t tell you how impressed I was on Friday to see so many of our students and most of the staff wearing green in support and recognition of Cerebral Palsy.  CP has effected a number of our students and their families over the years.  When I asked one of our students about it he commented that, “It was awesome to see so many people wearing green.  It was more than I thought.  I feel supported, people care.”  We do!  Way to go Pumas!

Tuesday we had our kick-off assembly for the Boogieathon.  A CHES favourite, but a first for Primrose.  Over the month of October our Intermediate Dance team will teaching all our students a variety of fun dances.  On Hallowe’en students will be invited to dress up and come  to gym for a fun day of dancing.  Alternate activities will be provided in the library for our families that do not celebrate Hallowe’en. Funds raised from this event will go to the purchase of technology.

Tuesday was our first School Council Meeting.  It was amazing to hear about all the programs that are running to support our students.  Breakfast Program, Milk Program, Pizza, Popcorn and Salad Days are possible only because of our parent volunteers.  If you are able to give some time, we would love the help.  Please let us know.  Elections were also held.  Congratulations and thank you to our executive for this school year:

Co Chairs: Lisa Cullen, Megan Taylor, Lisa Thompson

Treasurer: Colleen Kee

Secretary: Dianna Morris

 

We were disappointed that the Cross Country Meet was postponed due to rain.  We look forward to running this Wednesday.

We did get outside and walked around the school and yard on Wednesday as part of Walk to School Day.  We love the initiative of some of our families who parked at Superburger and walked from there.

Thursday was World Teacher Day.  We are fortunate a Primrose to have an amazing group of teachers who go above and beyond and who care for students in mind, body and spirit.  The Primrose teaching staff is amazing!

This week 68 of our Primary students came out to the Annie Choir meetings.  A number of students in grades 4-8 came out to the first Eco Club meeting of the year.  Primary students will be invited to join up for Eco Club soon.

  • Next Week’s Happenings:
    Monday – Thanksgiving Monday.  We hope you and your families have a great long weekend.
  • Tuesday – Orlando Bowen presentation for grades 4-8 at noon.  Parents welcome.
  • Wednesday – Cross Country Meet in PM
