The February newsletter has been posted. Sorry for the delay. Here are some notes for this month:
Parkdale has traditionally had mandatory Heritage Fair and Science Fair participation for grades 4-6. This year, we would encourage participation, but it is strictly voluntary on the part of the students. We are running both as clubs after school and at lunch time. This also allows time for research and computer use in the school
The Science fair has started in the building. Mr. McQuaid is overseeing this with students from 4 to 6. The provincial science fair will be held on April 2.
The 2014 Provincial Heritage Fair will be held at Confederation Centre of the Arts on Thursday, May 15, 2014. Mr. Goss and Ms. Harris will be overseeing the projects here. More information will follow at a later date.
The Friendship meet for gymnastics will be held Tuesday, February 11. Thanks to Mr. McQuaid for his efforts here.
Pink Shirt day will take place on Wednesday February 26th, this event not only happens in PEI, but all across Canada and world wide. Each year thousands if not hundreds of thousands take the opportunity on this day to stand up and speak out against bullying and to encourage a more empathetic, tolerant and inclusive society and to stop bullying in our schools, communities and workplaces.
A Terpstra’s sleigh ride will be held on February 19. Details to follow.
This week, Feb. 9th – 15, is also Teacher/Staff Appreciation Week. Thanks so much for your kindness.
