Hello QEA Families and
Welcome back and I hope
that you all had relaxing and revitalizing break. It was so lovely to see all
the kids coming back to school today – I swear they are all taller!
We have many exciting
learning opportunities and other school events to look forward to for the rest
of the year. In support of our school goal (Strengthen our social-emotional skills),
we will be doing a yoga residency with Mme Jie from Panda Yoga. Classes will run for
six weeks on Tuesdays from 22 January to 26 February. At the end of January, we
will be welcoming back the famous M Gino for our Tennis Residency from 28 January
to 1 February. M Gino will return in April for a second week of lessons. Please
look for the permission forms for these Field Studies in the coming days.
Report Cards will be
sent home at the end of January and there is a Professional Development Day on
January 25th – students do not attend this day. Additionally, there
is a Curriculum Implementation Day on Friday, February 15th (ahead
of the Family Day Long Weekend) – students do not attend this day. Please check
the school calendar on the website for other important dates.
In March, we will be attending
the VSO as a whole school and as well, we will have a 2 day in-school coding workshop
with Canada Learning Code. Before
you know it, it will be Spring Break!
Happy 2019 everyone et
Teresa Wells, VP
