This Week at Bert Ambrose: September 19th – 23rd

Last Friday, during the “Infinitus” performance students had so much fun listening to the band and participating! We look forward to our next cultural activity!
Permission Forms and the Registration Verification Form were issued last week for parents to sign and we request students return them to their teacher as of September 21, 2016. One of the forms will allow students to participate in a Fruit and Vegetable Nutritional Program that is sponsored by the BC Ministries of Education, Health, Agriculture and Lands, Tourism and Sport and the Arts. The purpose of this free program is to introduce a healthy snack choice once a month and provide teachers with a teaching tool on good nutrition. The Computer User Agreement gives students the opportunity to work in our computer lab. Please return the Registration Verification Form and signed consent forms by Wednesday, September 21st.
Open House is this Tuesday, Sept. 20th! Doors will be open at 6:00 pm until 7:00 pm and parents will be able to meet their new classroom teacher as well as celebrate the start of a new school year! Because of limited parking we encourage families to walk where possible. On this same evening, PAC will hold their meeting from 7-8 pm, in the library. PAC play an important role in our school and we hope you can join in! Babysitting is provided and PAC information will be included in the upcoming monthly newsletters.
