Administration Monthly Message

Meadowbrook School has been a busy place. We had a lovely Remembrance Day Ceremony on November 10. Student and guest speakers provided touching poems, speeches, and musical performances. Many thanks to Ms. Ponath for orchestrating the details of this ceremony. All of our Grade 5 classes have now had a visit to the swimming pool. Thanks to Mr. Nail for organizing. Grade 6’s will begin their swim schedule next week (Tuesday PM – 6.2, Thursday PM 6.1). Thank you, as well, to Mr. Nail for making arrangements for the Ski Trip, that was enjoyed by our students on Monday, November 27. We appreciate all the parent volunteers who helped out on this day. Accompanied by Mrs. Christensen, our Grade 7 and 8 Band students will walk over to RJ Hawkey on Tuesday, December 5 in period 6 and 7 to play for the students over there. Students in Grades 6, 7, and 8 will attend a play, The Drowsy Chaperone, at Bert Church on Thursday, December 7.We will walk over around 9:30 and will return after the performance, which is expected to last 2 hours. Students will be having lunch when we return, which will be a bit later than usual (12:30). Students in 6.1 will bring their lunch with them and walk to the pool from Bert Church to do their swimming afternoon. Our staff have reviewed the RVS Satisfaction Survey results and in an attempt to provide students with an opportunity for further input and sharing of thoughts and ideas around our students’ school experience, I have been going around to classes inviting students to talk about their positive experiences, concerns, and ideas around school improvement. On December 5, our students will participate once again in Hour of Code. You may learn more details around Hour of Code through this link https://hourofcode.com/ca. Developers of the Hour of Code say this about it, “The Hour of Code started as a one-hour introduction to computer science, designed to demystify "code", to show that anybody can learn the basics, and to broaden participation in the field of computer science. It has since become a worldwide effort to celebrate computer science, starting with 1-hour coding activities but expanding to all sorts of community efforts.” Many of our students are looking forward to this day! I am looking forward to our Christmas Concert at Bert Church on December 11 at 7:00! Our next student assembly will be December 12 in Period 5. Our next School Council meeting is on December 13 at 7:00. All parents are welcome! While teachers have been inputting information (comments and final marks), we have closed access to Powerschool marks. It will open again after report cards go out on December 8. Wishing all our families a wonderful and restful holiday! Until the new year,

S. McDuffe
