Here are a few news items to take us to spring break.
- Parent info – gr 4 & 7, student learning surveys. Your child will complete a similar survey at school. Your perspective as a parent is valued. Please take 20 minutes to complete so we can take your feedback into consideration as we continue to work through our school goals. Use “direct access” -we opted to not use pin numbers this year for parents https://brooklyn.comoxvalleyschools.ca/apps/pages/index.jsp?uREC_ID=1063300&type=d&pREC_ID=1362384

- Dance Pl3Y – Thank you PAC for providing this super program for our students and staff. We are midway through our 6 lesson series, and will have a Dance Celebration at the end (on Fri., Mar 6 1pm) in the gym that all students will be involved in. Please join us if you are able.
- Coronavirus update – we continue to reinforce handwashing and the hand sanitizer stations at each door have been re-filled. Please continue to monitor your child’s health and keep home if unwell. Though our risk for coronavirus is quite low, people are sensitive about being in the same space as ill people these days. Thank you.
