Memo for Garden Creek Parents and Guardians

Good Morning, Creeker Families,


We trust that you had a beautiful long weekend, regardless of the weather outside.

 

Parent Survey 2019  Update –  As a result of the parent survey conducted this spring, we received 167 responses.  Among other comments, parents have made suggestions that they would like to be more frequently  informed of their children’s individual progress other than at the regular reporting periods. They would also like more stretch learning for their children where  warranted and to be more involved in the school through either  volunteering or  being invited into the school more often for celebrations and viewing of student achievements.  Discussions have already gotten underway both  through our  PSSC and Core Leadership team of teachers and we will then bring this to our staff for considerations  for this coming school year.  Thank you to all who participated!

 

Professional Learning Updates –last Monday, teachers took part in professional learning through a presentation given by George Couros, a speaker on empowering learners and leading a culture of innovation and creativity. This was a motivating presentation and is in line with our school improvement plan  in regard to teachers learning more about and implementing personalized learning at Garden Creek.

 

Garden Creek Online – if you would like to be more informed about great things happening at the Creek, you are encouraged to follow our twitter page – @Gardencreekers  

 

Home and School Meeting postponed – this meeting is postponed to Wednesday May 29th at 6:30 pm

 

Volunteer Luncheon! This Wednesday is our volunteer luncheon.  A huge thank you goes out to all who volunteered this past year in any capacity to support our Creeker learners. We look forward to celebrating our volunteers this week and continuing our work together in the years ahead.

School Memo # 33 - Monday, May 13th, 2019

Memo for Garden Creek Parents and Guardians

​​​

Happy Monday Creeker Families,  I hope you enjoyed the weekend.  Creeker mothers...I hope you had a beautiful day on Sunday!  Parenting (from what I have observed and heard!) is the most difficult but also the most rewarding job you can have and from what I see everyday in outr little and big Creekers, that hard work has paid off! So here is to you!


Notes and Reminders:


Music Festival – Congratulations to all our Creeker participants in this year’s festival. A special mention goes to Grade 3 FI and 5 FI classes who won awards in their categories! A plaque will be given to representatives of both groups this coming Wednesday night at 7:00 pm at the Journey Wesleyan Church. WAY TO GROW!​

Regional  Heritage Fair Creeker Winners – We are proud of the students who represented us at the Regional  Heritage Fair this past Thursday, Elaina, Rhys, Joshua and Breyah. Joshua received an honorable mention and  Breyah won the School Days Museum award. Her project will be on display at the museum this summer.  Congrats, Creekers!

Correction to the Craft Fair Totals – My mistake – The Craft Fair last week brought in a much higher amount than I first reported.  $1000 was raised  for playground improvements through table  fees of about $600 and tickets sales of about $400. $675 was raised for our family in need. AMAZING!!

Spring Raffle Fundraised Totals – WOW, WOW! Thank you to all, over $3700 was raised for the school! The Grand prize winner was Hannah Karen Steeves Carney, winning $1000 worth of donated prizes – THANK YOU to all our donors! ! Two  students won bicycles donated by Savages and another two students won gift cards from Toys R US J  Jennifer Harns won a $200 voucher for a bike donated by one of our other generous Creeker parents.   Thank you Home and School for your work in this!

Volunteers Needed for the 3-5 Track and Field Day –  A reminder that Track and Field for grades 3-5 at the Creek will take place on Thursday, May 23rd . We need volunteers to help with these events. If you can lend a hand for the morning, please let us know by calling into the office or responding back to this email. Thank you for your support!
