A Smooth Start to Lady Grey School Year

Lady Grey School got off to a great start thanks to Laurie MacDougall, our new Vice Principal, along with the support from the rest of the staff. As a result the students and staff are nicely settled into classroom routines. September ended off with Mrs. Kelly McArthur’s class doing an excellent job of organizing our school Terry Fox Run.

We have changed direction with our School Growth Plan this year focusing on raising the Reading Comprehension level for all of our students.  In order to achieve this goal the staff  has decided to use SMART reading tools in their class each term and then come together as a full staff to discuss what they have learned and share their successes.

Ongoing events and clubs include Operation Fresh Air Activities, running, wrestling, drawing and juggling clubs. There are also Aboriginal Education activities and street hockey at lunch.

The PAC is also off and running and their major fundraiser is a fantastic raffle.  The grand prize is a trip for four to Disneyland or a $5000.00 voucher for travel.

Upcoming events include Photo retakes on Tuesday, Oct. 25 and a Spirit Theme Day at the end of each month.  I would like to take this opportunity to thank all the students, staff and parents who make Lady Grey such a great place to be.

Field Elementary Update

We are happy to be back to Field School.  We’ve been enjoying the wonderful weather and taking advantage of it by going on some great trips.  So far we’ve been to Lake O’Hara for a hike.  Also, we went to the Columbia Ice Fields for a guided walk on the glacier.  Last week we took the gondola at Lake Louise for a talk about wildlife by a Canada Parks interpreter.  These trips have been fantastic.  No trips this week because we’re busy preparing for our Thanksgiving lunch and making apple sauce for our families.  The Fall has been fine in Field.
