Weekly Update May 16-20

We had another AWESOME day at the Heritage Farm! Here are some pics from our day:

NO SCHOOL THIS FRIDAY-There is a Professional Development Day for staff, but schools are closed to students in the District.

NEW Paper PERMISSION FORMS-have been handed out to students for our next 3-weeks of sessions for more spring outdoor and community field trips. We will be visiting the Nicholas Sontag Marine Education Centre (Gibsons Aquarium at the Market Building) for 3 weeks, starting next week, Thursday, May 26. Please sign this form and have your child bring the form THIS WEEK.

FILMING DAY (half-day) is happening THIS THURSDAY. Bring all necessary costumes/props and equipment you need. It has been difficult for groups if members are away, so if you really, really can’t make it that day, please be courteous and let your group (or a staff member) know so your group can find a way to work around your absence. Filming should be wrapping up this week, so we can move into editing.

BEANS have art this week.

It sounds like everyone is able to make the Sea to Sky Canoeing Outdoor Adventure on June 13th! We have heard from a few parents too who are able to join which is fantastic! We need all the muscles we can get! Please email Kaia if you are a parent and able to join us for that fun day. Parents don’t need to pay extra. We have paid $50 per student from program funds for this day, so be sure to keep that day clear for this amazing opportunity!

Parents and Students: Be sure to mark on your calendars “Wednesday June 22nd” EVENING: We have booked the Heritage Theatre so we can show the students’ films in a professional setting! We’ll also have our year end slide show at that time. It will be a fun evening of short films….for PSSFFC…Project Spider Student Film Festival Challenge!

LITERATURE CIRCLES NEXT FRIDAY, MAY 27TH. Be sure to have your ROLE prepared to present to the group, and the WHOLE novel read. I’m in the middle of reading my 3rd novel in the mix–“Dry”…and it’s really exciting! If you can’t remember your role, here’s a reminder list:

BIG CALENDAR (note that it shows now the days when we will work on film editing, and if you still need to take a few short clips, you can do it at these times):
