You have made it. This year has been unique! I am so thankful to have been able to call myself your teacher for the past ten months. Know you have taught me a great deal!
My student, may you grow in faith, wonder and curiosity. May you always love generously and learn constantly. Be safe this summer. Shine light in the world, do not be afraid. You are just who you need to be, who God needs you to be. Know your teacher is proud of you. Go in peace!
Dear parents of future grade 7 students,
Thank you for allowing me the privilege of teaching your children. This year, although did not unfold as we might have predicted is marked with growth from each of your children.
I have appreciated your kind words and the support you have offered your children as we navigated the uncertainty of these times.
Your children are remarkable. They will do great things, they are ready for the next phase of learning. Continue to encourage them to grow in independence and confidence. Believe in them, hold space for both their mistakes and their victories for there will be many. Help them to learn constantly and love generously.
Be safe this summer, explore, adventure and rest.
Peace and grace,
*This class has loved music so much, I have only permitted them to listen to limited music in class but as a final project the kids have compiled a list of songs (mostly christian) that make them happy, pump them up, encourage them, lift them up when sad and calm them down. I tried to moderate the contributions. Not all songs are for everything one and that is okay too. You are welcome to use this link to access the students play list compiled this week in class. If there are any questionable songs, please email me to alert me and I will address those selections.
Please find the events for the final week of grade 6! As I have been working on report cards I have become nostalgic for the year that has passed, so much growth has happened this year. The students in grade 6 have experienced so many lessons from fractions to learning be love in their community and all the things in between. As we walk through the final days of this year and the students prepare to step into the the next chapter in their education we continue to practice being loving, brave and courageous.
Peace and grace,
Fun Day (Tuesday, June 15th):
Summer is almost upon us . . . . and you know what that means!!!!!
Intermediate Fun Day!!!!!
Despite the challenges of COVID and the closing of venues, the Intermediate Teachers have tried to put together a fun day of games, activities and water!!
On Tuesday, Jun 15, the Intermediates will head outside for some outdoor fun starting at 10:55 and running until 2:35 with breaks for lunch. This will happen rain or shine and hopefully the weather will cooperate with us. One of our exciting events is an inflatable water slide which will be on the field. Students should be prepared to get wet and bring the following items:
Clothes/apparel students can waterslide in (appropriate swimwear only – no swimwear that too much skin)
Clothes for students to change into after water events
Hats and sunscreen (We’re still hopeful!!!!)
lunches and snack
We’re hoping for a great full of fun and laughter.

June 18 – Last Day of School – Half Day (12:00)/Report Cards
Sorry for all the posts lately, this is the last of the week I promise. Please congratulate all athletes today. When I checked in for their HIGH/LOW/CHEER (something good/something hard today/someone who lifted them up somehow) they mostly responded with a success in one track event, a track event that pushed their limit and a friend or classmate who spoke encouraging words to them! Such a proud day for me as a teacher, it is so fun to see my class fly!
Peace and grace,
June 4 – Intermediate Track Meet @HRA
June 7- Highschool Tour (grade 6 in school 1:45)/Parent Meeting: Link to be emailed by Mrs. Lade
This week we remember those lost, those who continue to suffer and those who are lifting their voices. In class we have shared our responses to the news from Tk’emlúps te Secwépemc territory and the Kamloops Residential School. We have spent time praying at the memorial created by students at HRA in the field, we also wrote Haiku poems to process our feelings. I have included a few resources you might be interested in exploring on your own or with your child. Find the link to the students writing at the bottom of the post.
