We have many items in our lost and found.
Sunnybrae families, we would like you to take a few minutes to follow the link below and then respond to three ‘Survey Monkey’ questions. For more than a year now the School Council, made up of parents, staff, administration and community members, has been exploring the idea of bringing an instrumental Music program to our school. This is an ambitious undertaking so we are seeking feedback from as many stakeholders as possible. We appreciate your thoughts and will take them into consideration as we move forward in our School Improvement Planning. Please be assured that all responses are completely anonymous.
With the end of February, it begins to feel like the ‘homestretch’ as we are officially in the second half of our school year. We had a great turn out for the Valentine’s Day Dance-a-thon and an incredible Olympic experience. The Spring Break is only a few days away, report cards have all made it home and Spring is around the corner. We’ve survived another winter (almost) but there is a lot of school left and now is not the time to give in to the temptation to let those good habits slip.
As we asked after the Fall Progress Report went home, please take a few minutes to take another look at the report card, with your child(ren), and talk about what meaningful and achievable goals can be set for the second half of the year. Consider goals in different subject areas but pay particular attention to the Learning Skills. When students work hard to do their best, to take responsibility for their own learning and to respect themselves and those around them they are guaranteed to meet their potential. That is the true measure of success both in school and in life.
The Dance-a-thon raised $3000 for our school—essentially the same amount as last year. We were overwhelmed by the generous donations of money and prizes. Our sincere thanks to the many people who contributed to the success of this event. Olympic Day, despite the cold weather was also a huge success. Many staff members, volunteers and students worked together to make it a really special day for all involved. Last minute changes to the schedule shortened all of the outdoor portions of the day, most students were well dressed for a Canadian winter day and as always, all students were permitted to come into the building upon request. Both the Innisfil Examiner and the Innisfil Scope covered the event so be sure to check out the local papers to read more.
We, the staff of S.P.S. wish all of our families a safe and refreshing Spring Break and look forward to seeing you all back on March the 17th.
