Dead Pens, Markers, Battery Collection

Dear parents,

Our class is collecting dead pens, batteries, mechanical pencils and markers. We will be collecting them from now to November 30th, 2018. We are taking these things to help the environment, also to enter a contest put on by the City of Chilliwack to see how can get the most dead pens, batteries, mechanical pencils and markers between fifteen other classes in Chilliwack.

Please consider collecting recyclable tools from your work places to send with us to school. Check those junk drawers!

Thank you,

Grade 5/6 Students

Genius Hour

Thursday, Nov. 15th, 2018 is our first Genius Hour session where students are free to start their projects once they have received proposal approval.

Genius Hour will continue on every Thursday until further notice. It is the student’s responsibility to attend class with all materials necessary to work on their project at school.

Let the learning begin!

VSO Trip

Tomorrow is the VSO field trip with Mrs. Dekoff for Grade 6 students. I am sure it will be a wonderful day!

Students must be here at 7:45 am.

Bring a bagged lunch and money if they want to purchase anything at Granville Island.  No electronics on the bus.

Good afternoon,

As we prepare for the assembly I thought I would send off a brief snapshot of our coming week. Have a safe long weekend. May you find moments to remember our blessings and the sacrifices of those who protect our rights and freedoms.

Team Thailand is busy preparing for our trip in March. HRA is excited about working with this team of students and seeing what God will do in us and through us.

We would like to invite you to help support our team project, which will involve some rice distribution, VBS activities, and basic healthcare.

We will be taking orders for poinsettias, wreaths, and table top arrangements tomorrow after school (3-4pm) in the foyer and would love to set you up with all your Christmas floral needs.

Poinsettias are $13, wreaths and arrangements are $30.  There are pictures of the products at the school office.

Good morning Grade 5/6 community,

This week we will kick off Genius Hour! Grade 5/6 is very excited. Please be sure to check in with your student, often genius hour projects require some support from home in the form of materials and encouragement!

During our first wave of presentations of the King’s Equal projects I have been so impressed with the students effort and creativity! Bravo Grade 5/6!
