Lady Grey and Field Prinicpal

At Lady Grey we look forward to an eventful time between now and Spring Break.

On Tuesday, February 12 our staff participated in a number of different professional development activities. Wednesday, Feb. 27 is Pink Shirt Day where students and staff are encouraged to wear pink to support anti-bullying, anti-discrimination, and anti-homophobia.  We will also be holding a special Pink Day assembly in the afternoon. Lady Grey continues to work hard to support our “You Matter in a Community of Awesome” theme.

Over the next few weeks, all of our grade six and seven classes are engaging in discussions around appropriate use of social media and related issues.

Finally the second formal report card will be coming out on Friday, March 8.

As part of our reading goal, we have several ongoing programs in our school. Read Naturally is attended by students in every grade, who need a boost in their reading skills, it happens every morning of the week. Guys Read is a voluntary lunch club attended by a mixed grade group of boys where they engage in shared reading, book talks and snacks with our coordinator, Mr. Horlor.

Lastly, but certainly not least, our One to One program continues with community volunteers reading with a number of individual students. We really appreciate our volunteers, they really make a difference in our school.

Our Grade 6/ 7’s have almost finished their cross-country skiing at the Dawn Mountain Trails while our Grade 4-7 skating finishing earlier in the month.

A reminder that Grade 4 and Grade 7 parents should have received a Ministry Parent Satisfaction Survey from your child.  Please return completed surveys to the school no later than April.

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. A reminder that our next PAC meeting is at 7:00 p.m. on Monday, February 25 in our library.



Field School Happenings



February is a busy month at Field School.  We’ve been enjoying cross country ski lessons as well as daily tobogganing!

We’ve been doing lots of celebrating-Valentine’s Day, Chinese New Year and 100 Days.  We are also excited to be doing another Outdoor Ed.

Morning with Jane Powel from Golden.  Still lots of snow here and we will be making Quinzee huts next week. ( Jane Powell taught Mrs. Larose how to do this on Pro D day!)  Time is flying by for us at our little school!
