May 24th – 28th

Hi Kinder families,

We had a very exciting week in Kindergarten! The children had a wonderful time brainstorming reasons why we love St. Paul School! We drew beautiful minions and thought of a “minion” (million) reasons why we love St. Paul School!

Can you believe we are almost into June? As we prepare to enter our final month, we will begin our Genius Hour inquiry projects, where children will learn, create, and present on a topic of their choice. The Grade 7s are also having their Spring Fundraiser. Being inspired by their friend and classmate, Justice Guno, all proceeds will be donated to BC Children’s Hospital. Please have a look in your children’s homework folder for more information.

Friendly Reminders:

  1. Sweaters – Please remember to check your child’s school sweater(s) to ensure they have their own, as we have had a few incidents of lost sweaters especially with the nice weather. We also kindly remind you to label your child’s sweater so that they can be returned, if they go missing.
  2. Walkathon-  We hope that all families have a wonderful time on Friday for Walkathon. Each family has been asked to send a photo of their walk to add to a video that will be shared with the school community. Please wear your St. Paul spirit wear and make it a fun family activity!
