Lady Grey and Field Elementary Schools Principal

At Lady Grey students and staff are currently on their Spring Break.

April will be filled with activities starting with Education Week April 2-6.

As part of our ongoing efforts to make Lady Grey “Bully Free”, we are pleased to anticipate a Red Cross Anti-Bullying workshop entitled “Beyond the Hurt.”.

This comprehensive program offers training to students during the day and an adult workshop in the evening.

We will host the evening workshop on Wednesday, April 11 at 6:30 p.m. in the Lady Grey Gym.

It is important for family and community members to join us in our quest to better understand and therefore be better able to prevent bullying.

A huge thank you to our PAC for funding these workshops.

Rehearsals will be underway again for our play this year called “No Strings Attached.”

Public performances will be on April 24, 25 at 7 p.m. at the Golden Civic Centre.

The Grade 6/7 basketball team played Windermere Elem at Lady Grey and  returned to Invermere last week to play three schools.

Our school wide environmental awareness project is coming along nicely.

We have hundreds of wooden fish being cut out by the Robertson and Bolt families in preparation for the art portion of the event.

During the week of April 30-May 2 we will be having watershed awareness and fish painting workshops culminating in putting our decorated fish on our school fence.

Folks wishing to help out with the preparation of the fish, the art workshops or the hanging of the fish on the fence, please contact the school.

In closing, I would like to thank our Parent Advisory Council for all the hard work they do to make our school the best it can be.

In particular, thanks to our PAC and parents in organizing our lunch program.

Field School Happenings

Spring is just starting to make an appearance in Field and we’re ready for it!

We’ve just finished skating lessons in Golden and the children loved it.  We also had the last cross-country ski lesson.

Our wind up was a treasure hunt at Lake Louise.  Who doesn’t like following a map and finding Kinder Eggs buried in the snow!

We’ve been enjoying the company of Emily, a teaching student from the University of Calgary, and she has been doing some great science units with the students.
