This Week at Ambrose- May 21-24

Hello everyone!
I hope all our families had a wonderful long weekend … thankfully the weather was beautiful on Sunday and Monday and I hope everyone remembered the sunscreen!!
Thank you to all of the parents/grandparents/guardians who came out to volunteer with the Track Meet last Thursday. We can’t hold some of these events without the wonderful support we received from our school community and want you to know how much we appreciate each one of you. Also, a thank you to the many parents and family members who were able to attend and cheer on our students. While the weather was less than ideal, I think it was a great dayd and we have an awesome team of students selected to represent Bert Ambrose at the District Track Meet on June 7th.
Our Grade 6 students leave for Barkerville early Tuesday morning. A HUGE thank you to Mrs. Barr and Mrs. London for taking on the organization of this trip for their classes. And another thank you to the many parents who have stepped up to assist with preparations for this trip and/or agreeing to chaperone. We are sending you off with the hopes that it is an absolutely amazing experience for everyone!!
Last week saw an increase in behaviours that do not align with the 4 guiding words for the school (Safe-Respectful-Responsible-Kind). Miss Brekkas and I had MANY conversations with students and parents and we really hope that the remaining few weeks of school are more positive; both on the playground and in the classroom. At this time of the year, there are many special field trips and we don’t want students missing these activities due to poor choices made at school. Please know every effort is made to prevent this from happening; but Miss Brekkas and I will support our teachers if they are not comfortable in taking a student off school grounds due to poor behaviour choices.
The annual “Pitch-In” effort will happen on Friday – parents and family members are welcome to join us for this event. Please check with your child’s teacher to confirm the time each class is heading out to contribute to cleaning up our school community.
