Good morning from PAMS

I have two message this morning.  The first is a message to all students.  As you know, we are now in the last two weeks of your learning plans.  The theme in this week's lessons in grade 7/8 is "The Great Outdoors" while the grade 6's are working on "Sports".   There are many great learning activities for you, please visit the website and participate. We also have two theme days this week.  Today is Hat Day and tomorrow is Show off your Juggling Skills Day.  There is a PE learning plan about juggling on our site (April 6).  We would love to see a video of your juggling skills or your favorite hat. Our advisory teachers are hoping each of you will send them an email this week using outlook in office 365. Please share what activities you have completed, liked or had difficulty with.  If they don't hear from you, they will be calling your home to speak with you. 

The second message is for grade 8 students.  We know that the beginning of June marks a time when we traditionally are preparing for end of year celebrations.  We want you to know that we haven't forgotten about this important time.  We are currently working on virtual celebrations as well as certificates and yearbooks.  We have also been communicating with SVHS and transition to high school activities will take place before you go back to school. We know that you may be getting anxious thinking about moving on to high school, this is very normal.  Rest assured that the team at SVHS are anxious to meet you and will be working hard to help you with this big move.  These activities will take place in the fall.  If you have any questions in the meantime,  please call me at the school 273-4760.  

Have a great day everyone,
