Memo to Garden Creek Parents & Guardians
Saturday, February 19th 2017
I am hoping that this week finds us back to a normal schedule at the Creek. We know that the storm days resulted in lost learning for students, so staff will be working hard at ensuring all essential outcomes are covered throughout the rest of the year.
100th Day Creeker Food Drive - This week we will begin our 100th day Food Drive, as per the notice you received. If you could... Kindergarten: peanut free granola bars, Grade 1: Pasta of any kind Grade 2: Pasta Sauce ( cans preferred), Grade 3: lunch snacks Grade 4: Cereal and oatmeal Grade 5: Canned Goods - Thank you!!!
Fluoride Permission Slips : please pass these in if you have not yet done so. We will probably delay our start by a week due to the storm days causing disruptions in routines etc.
Parent Perception Survey - if you have not had the chance to complete this.. here is your homework . Thanks for your support! https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/GCSParents
Professional Learning Day this Friday - At this point, we are still anticipating a Provincial Professional Learning Day this coming Friday. Teachers will be focusing on the 10 year plan, learning about assessment strategies through a book study, sharing how they have been engaging students through outcome focused centers, and their work thus far in formative assessment practices. There will be no school for students.
