February 2017

Happy Year of the Rooster to everyone!  Classes resume Monday, February 6 and that is also the start of our Term 2 Extracurricular Activities.  If you have any questions about what activities you signed up for, please speak with the homeroom teacher.  We will celebrate our 100th day of school on the 16th. Wow, that came fast!  On Friday the 17th students will receive their Report Cards and during the week of the 20th to the 24th, we will have our Report Card conferences.  During this week there will be no Extracurricular Activities.  Wednesday the 22nd is our Pink Shirt Day where everyone who participates will wear a pink shirt to support the Anti-Bullying Campaign.  On Friday the 24th we will have our Community Chest Dress Casual Day.  Students can come in casual dress with a donation of $20 or more.  I hope the year of the Rooster is lucky for you!

I graduated from Dalhousie University with a B.Sc. in Agriculture (Hons).  After five years working in the golf course management field, I attended The University of Maine and completed my Bachelor of Education in anticipation of looking to work overseas.  In 2003 I started working at Delia School of Canada.  I have been a homeroom teacher in grades 3, 5 and 6 before becoming Head Teacher in 2014.  Currently I am a candidate in the MBA Education (International) programme at Keele University.
