Track Meet Volunteers for May 16

Hello Bert Ambrose Community. We are still in dire need of some volunteers for tomorrow’s Track Meet, especially Grade 4/5 Girls. If you are able to volunteer any time at all it would be greatly appreciated. Please call the office at 250-785-2321. Thank you!

Track Meet Parent Volunteers Needed

We are in need of some more parent volunteer’s to help lead groups for our school Track Meet on May 16.  If you are able to help out please contact the school at 250-785-2321 or send back the orange volunteer sheet with your child indicating which time and group you can volunteer with.

We appreciate your support in helping us make this event a success!

Cross Country Running Oct 3

October 3rd, Cross Country Running:
This is our last race of the season. The team will leave the school at 2:30 and will travel by bus to Taylor. The race starts at 3:00 and the course usually begins by the golf course parking lot. Hopefully, we will be finished at 4:00 and should arrive back at the school by 4:30. Thanks to those of you who have already sent me notes saying that you are giving your child (children) rides home. Please send any other notes indicating that you will be giving your child a ride home to the school in advance of the race so that I can establish a list of those who will be riding the bus. It sounds like it will be quite cool on Wednesday so please ensure that your child brings a warm jacket. Thank you for all of your help!

On May 25 we held our school Track Meet for the Grade 3-6 students. We were so happy the weather cooperated! Thanks to all the teacher and parent volunteers who made this event such a success! Thank you to Bianca Krezanoski for taking the attached pictures.

Cross Country Skiing Fun

These pictures were taken of some of our students who participated in a loppet on the weekend. A loppet is a Scandinavian term meaning a gathering of skiers, who participate in a timed ski event for fun and/or competition. Looks like a lot of fun! A big thanks to Mrs. Tacey and Mrs. Brown for organizing these fun and healthy outings for our students.
