May 3rd Update

I hope you enjoyed the weekend! Thank you to all the students who dressed up as heroes and showed some gratitude for our local heroes!

A few announcements:

Missions 2021 Top Crop Flower Pick up – Tuesday 12-2pm
If you ordered flowers from the missions group, they will be ready for curbside pick up at the school on Tuesday – please use the Kiss and Go area.

Kootenay Fun 5 – if you are registered, please get out there and walk/run a 5K of your choice before May 31st. Then post a pic to the KF5 Facebook page. Swag bag pick up will be the first week of June.

Library Book Pick Up System
Mrs. Spyksma and Mrs. Burnham are going to start a library book pick up system, as we know there are some students who are missing “real” books to read. Simply email Mrs. Spyksma ( with your book requests/genre ideas, etc BY Thursdays at noon. Then on Fridays, these books may be picked up at the school between 11am-12pm. Books will be in labeled ziplock bags. These bags can be exchanged each Friday.

Fun Family Friday Challenge – Week 5
This week I am challenging our students and families to a “Musical Challenge”.???????? We want to see families “jam” together, sing a song, make some homemade instruments, play an instrument (recorders? ukelele?) piano, do a dance – be creative! Entries will be posted on social media and a name will be drawn on Saturday. The name drawn will win a gift certificate to Happy Cow Ice Cream!
I (Mrs. Zurrin) will be sending out my song tomorrow – look out for a song sung by your principal!

We continue to pray for our leaders, who are making decisions for our communities and province. We pray for wisdom. We pray for God to heal our land.
