A Message from our Principal

Addendum: 

We thank Mr. Thomson for teaching our grade 4/5 class since the start of the school year.  Due to new opportunities, he is unable to continue teaching at our school.  We wish him and his family all the best.  Please join me in welcoming Mr. Andrew Gait, who will be teaching in the grade 4/5 class on Fridays, Mondays and Tuesdays until the end of December.

 

Dear Barrowtown Parents,

 

I hope you and your family continue to be healthy and safe.  It was only a few weeks ago when our students dressed up in their favourite Hallowe’en costumes and took part in the Pumpkin Olympics.  Since then, we gathered as a school for a Remembrance Day ceremony to pay tribute and show our respect to the war veterans who sacrificed so much for the freedom that we have today.  A few days later, we celebrated Diwali as a school with students making a presentation and dancing in the gym.  Here are some updates as we move into the next few weeks:

 

Food Bank Drive

To support this very worthwhile cause, our school is having a House challenge.Students are encouraged to bring in non-perishable food items as building blocks to use for collectively creating a work of art to represent their team.At a glance, it looks like the Salmon House students are building a ship, while the Eagles are making something tall.The last time I checked, the Bears were creating something that looks like a bird, while the Cedar House are still getting their building blocks together.The contest will close towards the end of the month with the judges determining which House has the most ‘eye catching’ work of art.

 

Term One Report Cards

As a reminder, the first formal report cards will be sent home on the last Thursday of this month.

 

Early Dismissal Days

To provide our teachers more time to communicate with Barrowtown families, there are two upcoming early dismissal days on December 2nd and 3rd.On these two days, students will be dismissed at 2:18, one hour earlier than the usual dismissal time.

 

Purdy’s Chocolate Fund Raising

Once again, our PAC team is hard at work supporting school initiatives.The deadline for ordering Purdy’s chocolates is November 26th. If you would like to put in an order, visit the following web link:

 

Feel free to send me an e-mail (terry.jung@abbyschools.ca) or give me a call (604-360-2565) if you have any questions or if there is anything you would like to discuss.  Take care.

 

Sincerely,

 

Terry Jung

Principal
