Bringing the many pieces together that create a cohesive school experience is like a working on a huge puzzle. This past month the pieces included field trips, a return of skating, an Open House, a visit to the Symphony, an interesting SPA coffee morning, great studio learning...and a flood. Mr Hoff and I are working on piecing things together to bring the kitchen back to full functionality. If the trades are able to work according to schedule, we hope to have everything finished by the end of March Break. Keep your fingers crossed!
We had our first catered lunch yesterday, and everyone seems to have enjoyed it. The process went smoothly, and we are happy to have a solution to take us through until the kitchen is restored. Thanks again for your support throughout this challenging episode of life at SBS.
This week brings with it a very special day: Student Led Conferences and the PYP Exhibition. Our students from JK to GR 5 are preparing their presentations for their parents, and our GR 6 class will share their learning with the entire school. The GR 6 PYP Exhibition, Fueling the Fire: Climate Change and Human Impact, explores many aspects of climate change. Don't miss a great presentation on Friday, and be sure to make time to visit the Arts Studio.
Music from Peter Pan is beginning to fill our halls as students prepare for auditions next week. In the fall we asked our students about the process and listened to their feedback in preparation for the auditions. They had some very thoughtful suggestions which we believe will improve the experience for all our actors and we have incorporated them into our plans for auditions. We are very proud of each and every student who takes a risk and tries out for a part in the play. Good luck - we can't wait to see you all on stage!
March Break begins at the end of the day on March 11th, and I wish you all a wonderful, relaxing time. Wherever you are during the break, I hope that you and your children enjoy some delightful family time together.
