March 11th-15th (One more week before the break!)

Just one more week to go! It is hard to believe we are so close to spring break already. A few housekeeping things to take care of:

  • Thank you for your support of the Bake Sale and Book Fair in the last few weeks. This year has been odd in that there has been a huge fundraising push, it continues to amaze me how generous this community is!
  • I still need volunteers for the Pancake Breakfast and Intermediate Art Gala. Please consider helping, I know it is a very busy time of year but these events are great for community building!

Spelling:

Grade 5: R(a) honour, your, loose, sweet, tension, stage, resign, precious, common, congratulate, provision

Grade 6: T(d) nation, national, television, automobiles, autograph, minute, dilemma, microphone, minute, telephone

Bible Memory:

Oh, how great are God’s riches and wisdom and knowledge! How impossible it is for us to understand his decisions and his ways! (Romans 11:33 NLT)

Pancake Breakfast

Spring break is right around the corner!  To celebrate we are having a pancake breakfast for grades 4-6 on Friday, March 15th.  Breakfast will be served before school, between 8:00 – 8:50 am in Mrs. Goosen, Ms. Froyland and Mrs. Moisin’s portables.  Come early, get some fluffy pancakes, and celebrate a with us.

*We are in need of some parent helpers and griddles.  If you are able to help, please email:

Money can be brought to the classroom teacher or paid at the office.  Please send money in by Friday, March 15th.   Thank you for supporting our silent auction.

Interested in Joining the school Track team?

Each year, all grade 4-6 students are expected to participate in a standardized track meet at Bear Creek Stadium as part of our physical education program in class. If your child is keen to do more, keep reading!

Due to the grade restructuring in the Chilliwack public schools, the Chilliwack track and field coaches have extended an invitation to grade six athletes to participate in the three local track meets in April.  At these three meets, students would compete against other grade six athletes as well as grade seven students.  The events that they could compete in are limited but this would allow them to get experience in the sport if they were interested.

  • 100m
  • 200m
  • 400m
  • 800m
  • 1500m
  • Long jump
  • High jump
  • Shot put
  • 4×100 relay
  • 4×400 relay

The meets take place on:

  • Wednesday, April 10 (3:00-5:30)
  • Wednesday, April 17 (3:00-5:30)
  • Wednesday, April 24 (9:00-4:00)

If your child is interested in joining the track team and participating in these local track meets I will arrange for them to connect with the coach (Mr. Barkman). Students interested in participating are welcome to train with the high school for the remainder of the season (late May).

Please contact me via email if your child is keen!
