Dear Parents,
Happy New Year! We hope that you enjoyed a wonderful holiday with your family.  Welcome back to a fresh start, new goals, and winter weather.
Floor hockey intramurals have begun during the lunch recess.  Seventy-five students divided into five teams will enjoy play on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays during the winter months.  Thank you to Mr. Wolf for organizing this anticipated extra-curricular activity.
On Thursday, Gallaugher Centre welcomed Scientists in the School and participated in the Get Charged workshop.  All of our classes will participate in a hands on Science workshops due to the generosity of so many families who contributed to our voluntary school fees. The next workshop is scheduled for students in Benoit Centre on January 23rd.
Ms. Shipley accompanied a number of grade 8 students to Bell High School for their annual Grade 8 Day. Greyhounds enjoyed the opportunity to 'taste test 'what it is like to be a Bell Bruin and to see former classmates and friends.
Looking ahead to next week, on Monday and Tuesday, our Future ACES, with guidance from staff leads Mrs. Friesen, Mrs. Thompson and Ms. Shipley, have organized indoor and outdoor activities for grade 6 students at SPS and Westwind and grade 5 students at RPS.  We look forward to seeing our student leaders excel and our future Greyhounds having a great time!
As part of our Inclusive, Safe and Caring Schools Initiatives, we will welcome Jefferson Morris from The Canadian Centre for Gender and Sexual Diversity. This year, our grade 7 and 8 students will participate in conversations surrounding heterosexism (homophobia) and cissexism (transphobia) within sports that typically involve exclusionary policies and professional challenges surrounding coming out. 
On Thursday, January 19th, our Math Club members will participate in Caribou Contest #3.  We wish these Greyhounds the best of luck!  Thank you to Mrs. Law for providing this enriching opportunity for our students.
Winter Activity Day packages will be coming home next via backpack express.  Some of the ski packages will come home in green paper as per the cover letter.  Others will come home in blue paper as we ran out of the green.  Sorry for the inconvenience and potential confusion.
Finally, just a reminder that we will be hosting our Annual Family STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) Night on Wednesday, February 1st, 2017.  Pizza will be served at 5:30 PM and activities for students in grades 1 to 8 will begin at 6:00 PM.   If you have not already RSVP’d, please complete the form at .  We look forward to seeing you there!
Have a great weekend!
