Good Morning, Creeker Families!
I hope you are enjoying the weekend and staying dry :) Here are some messages and dates for you:
Music Festival Concert a Success! We were all very impressed with our students who performed for the school and some families this past Wednesday. Both choirs performed as well as 1 M, grade 3 FIs and grade 5 FIs. Numerous individual students also performed in the area of piano, violin and singing. CREEKER CHEERS to them and our staff and volunteers who supported them! Special thanks goes to Mrs. McGregor for all her work :)
Professional Learning - This past Friday , all members of our staff were busy learning. Teachers and EAS will be discussing their sessions at our upcoming staff meetings and learning from each other. More to come on this next week. This coming Saturday, our Learning to Lead team will be spending their day at UNB as we continue to focus on best practice projects in our school.
Visit from Barbados Teachers: This Monday, some of our teachers will be hosting visiting teachers from Barbados as they view best practices. This is in conjunction with UNB. Thank you to our teachers for taking part in this.
