It’s tradition at Silver Creek that the last afternoon before spring break, we celebrate with a school wide Spring Break-Out in the gym. Multiage teams of students from kindergarten to grade 8 will compete in fun and silly challenges. There will be special grade 8 and staff challenge too. Chelsey Beckham, our indigenous educational worker will be helping kids make bannock and chili for lunch, free of charge to all.
Spring break runs for two weeks March 16-27. School resumes Monday March 30.
We are hoping to see many of Silver Creek’s 3-5 year olds tomorrow afternoon at our annual Ready, Set, Learn session led by Early Learning Coordinator, Jennifer Findlay. Call the school at 250-832-8282 to let us know you are coming. Children will receive a goody bag with early learning materials. March 2, 1-2 pm.
Remember to wear your pink shirt on Wednesday February 26 to recognize Pink Shirt day. We will be having a special assembly put on by Mrs. Klassen’s class, a photo booth and a cookie and cupcake sale sponsored by our Me To We club. Each item is a dollar and the proceeds go towards global and local awareness and support activities.
