February 15th Update

It’s National Teacher Appreciation Week!! Heather MacKenzie and her committee have been very busy organizing a week of events to show the teachers and staff at West Royalty Elementary just how much they are appreciated by all of the parents and children.  Thank you Heather!

Literacy Night for the parents of children in grades K-2 will be held on Tuesday February 22nd from 6:30-7:30 pm. The children in attendance will be enjoying a movie and snack in the multi-purpose room. Encourage them to come in their PJs, and then they’ll be almost ready for bed when they get home!

The results of the Primary Math Assessments were sent home with Grade 4 students on February 14th.  At the February Home and School meeting, Mr. Gaudet mentioned that the students at WRE did quite well overall. For more information about the assessments, visit the Department of Education and Early Childhood Development website at www.gov.pe.ca/eecd/ProvincialAssessment.

The Winter Carnival is shaping up to be a great family event! On March 12 from 10-12, the school is THE place to be! Tickets will be $2 per person, and an order form will go home with the students soon. All proceeds of the Carnival support the French program at the school, so come on out and play some Wii, or if BINGO is more your speed, you can do that too!

CBC’s Dragon’s Den is looking for the next great youth entrepreneurs! They are doing a tour across Canada looking for students who are inspiring entrepreneurs to audition for their program.  Information can be found at: http://www.cbc.ca/dragonsden/audition/

See you at our next meeting on March 8th at 6:30 in the staff room at the school. Until then, stay warm, and take a break from shoveling!

Cheers,
DB

February 9th Update

Our next Home and School meeting will be held on March 8th at 6:30 pm in the staff room. All parents are welcome to attend as we discuss many important issues for the children of West Royalty.

We are excited about the Literacy night for parents with children in grades K-2 on February 22nd from 6:30-7:30 pm. It is taking shape and will be a great event! For those of you who signed up and are bringing your children, they will be watching a movie in the multi purpose room while the parents soak up the literacy information. Keep in mind that the event for students in grades 3-5 will be held on April 12, and registration will occur closer to that date. These sessions are presented in partnership with the PEI Home and School Federation through the parent engagement initiative.

Teacher and Staff Appreciation Week is next week! Heather MacKenzie chairs this important initiative. She is still in need of volunteers to monitor classrooms on Feb 16th while the teachers are treated to lunch. If you can assist, please contact Heather at: hlmackenzie@hotmail.ca.

Mark your calendar for the WINTER CARNIVAL! It will be held on March 12th from 10 am - Noon. It is a great family event with sleigh rides, cookie decorating, face painting, bouncy castles, bingo, and lots of other FUN! All proceeds are directed toward the French Program.
