February Break – Please make note that February Break is the week of 19 – 23 — during which time, there will be no classes. For High School students this will be ‘Work Experience Week’, as they take up placements in the community.

Recommitment at the Grade School & High School – Letters and reminders have now gone home to all families from Grade 1 through 11 regarding recommitment for the 2018-19 school year. If you missed this letter, you can find it here: https://goo.gl/4eqyft. Confirmation is required by the end of the month on February 28.

Emergency Contact Forms – If you have received a paper form, please bring in the corrections/additions ASAP. We are required to have the MSP# and emergency contacts for your child(ren). If you live across the bridge, consider listing someone on the North Shore, in the event that bridges could be closed due to an earthquake. Ronaye will be happy to make the corrections on BigSis for you if this makes it easier.

SHIFT Workshop for Parents – Tuesday, February 27. Open to all parents, although content may be more applicable towards parenting youth ages 12 – 17. See the poster below for detail.

Lost & Found – What an abundance of beautiful winter coats, pants, t-shirts, etc. in the Lost & Found box! On Friday, February 16 you are invited to help yourself to whatever is left in this box; the remainder will be taken to the goodwill!

Have a lovely week!
