Newsletter: April 4th, 2011
Dear Parents and Guardians:   I trust that spring break was an opportunity to relax and be with family and friends!
It is hard to believe that we have three months left in our school year!  Looking ahead I see a very busy schedule with lots of exciting things happening at Bert Ambrose!
Our next Parent Advisory Council meeting is Tuesday April 12, 2011 at 6:30 pm. in our library.  Babysitting will be provided.
I would like to take a moment and thank our ACHOTE Student Teachers for their wonderful contributions to our school and wish them nothing but success as they pursue their teaching careers! (Chelsea Green, Shallen Gerwing and Nadine Aulin)
Missoula Theatre is here all next week beginning with tryouts Monday April 11th in our gym at 3:00 pm.  Tryouts are for everyone, but understand the cast is usually about 65 students, so everyone may not get a part. (Sorry)
The production Treasure Island will be on Friday at the North Peace Cultural Centre.
Shows at 1:00 pm for our students and at 7:00 pm for parents and general admission.
The elementary badminton season has begun with the District Tournament to be held on April 29 and April 30 at North Peace Secondary.  We are in the process of choosing the 22 students who will represent Bert Ambrose Elementary this year.
Kindergarten registration:  You are welcome to come in during any school day to register your child for next year’s kindergarten.
Mud:  Please remind your children to have inside and outside shoes at Ambrose.
*******   Parking continues to be a serious concern!     *******              We as a school community are very worried about the potential danger first thing in the day and at dismissal at 2:45pm.  Please be patient, back in when possible, use the parking lot if possible, please do not park on the street in front of the school.  We need to be safe at all times.
