News and Week of April 13th – 17th

Posted on Updated on

Message from Mrs. Paxton:
As some of you already know, I have accepted a principal position in SD #38 Richmond for September. My daughter is graduating from HSSS in June and will be attending UBC. My son and the rest of my family is in Vancouver and I’d like to be closer to them. I will be VERY sad to leave Squamish Elementary and SD #48, as I have been here for almost 18 wonderful years, but it is time for a new chapter in my life. I will miss everyone very much. Thank you for all of your support and encouragement over the years. At this time, we do not know who will replace me, but as soon as the position is filled, I will let everyone know.

Students and Mr. Thompson from Don Ross talked to our Grade 6’s on Thursday.

There is lots going on at school next week!

Monday: Earth Kids meets at lunch – all students welcome. Our reading Link Challenge team competes for the trophy at 6:30 in the Eagle Eye Theatre.

Tuesday: Inventors’ Club at lunch. Students can sign up at the office.

Wednesday: Local photographer, Corrie Lindroos, will start taking pictures and she will be here Thursday and Friday as well. Parent volunteers needed – see below! We sent home a flyer this week to tell you which day your child’s class will be on. We have a fire drill at 10:15 and at lunchtime the grade 5/6 French classes will be walking to the pool.

Thursday: Because I Am A Girl at lunch

Friday: Media Club, Cribbage Club and Running Club at lunch. Parent work party to build garden beds for the front of the school – 5 pm. Please join us!

Here is some additional information from the PAC:

  1.  We have Corrie Lindroos Photographycoming next Wednesday, Thursday & Friday. We really need volunteers (2 per day) to help to make sure this goes smoothly (and help with getting groups of kids out of the class without disruptions). If you can help on one of the days (half day (9:10 – 12:00 or 1:10 – 2:45, or all day)- please let the PAC know in the FB group or by email,
  2. Plant Fundraiser! Deadline for online (you can pay online) is May 1st and delivery is May 8th.  Great for Mother’s Day!
  3. Hot lunch forms were due today for the hot lunch on Wednesday, April 22nd.
