March and April

Spring Break is rapidly approaching. Some families are already off to warmer climes, and the students are excitedly discussing their plans for the break with one another!  Before we disperse for Spring Break, we have a field trip on Wednesday, March 14th to The Velveteen Rabbit, at Carousel Theatre.  There are still spaces available to participate in this lovely production.  The cost is $11.00 per person and the show is at 10:00 a.m.  Please meet at the theatre by 9:45 at the latest, as Carousel will not seat us until all our group is present.

After Spring Break, on Wednesday, April 4th, is the whole-school field trip to the UBC Roots and Shoots Music Program at the Chan Centre.  School busses will be taking students and teachers to and from the Chan Centre, so please mark your calendars to be at school by the first bell:  8:55 a.m.  Busses will be leaving promptly at 9:00 a.m. and will not wait for any latecomers.  Students will be back at Beaconsfield at 12:00.  Intermediate students can be picked up directly from the bus or from the lunch room.  Primary students will stay for lunch and the afternoon programming.  Please ensure that you have filled out the consent form ASAP for this event.  Any children who do not have a signed consent form will not be able to attend.

UBC Science Program:  I have received a number of questions about these classes which I am attempting to arrange.  Once UBC and I have fully arranged everything, I will provide information on dates, times, etc.  Thanks to everyone for your quick responses.

ADST Fair:  I have put an information sheet in every family’s folder regarding this year’s ADST Fair.  The fairs will be held in the afternoons of April 23rd and April 24th.  Please take a look at the information sheets and let me know if you have any questions.  I have no doubt the students will come up with fabulous ideas – I have been so impressed already with the ideas they have been generating in  class for their “Thingamajig” project and the further ideas which have emerged from their presentations and discussions.
