Parent Help Needed

May 16th, 2022

Usually I do lots of activities where parents can come into the classroom and join us. Covid had taken that away from us, but we are now free to slowly open things up.

Are any parents interested in a games afternoon from 1-3 on May 25th? I would need 4 parent helper who could bring a game to play with a small group. Is there another parent who can send 15 individual snack size bags of chips?

Let me know if you are available!

Blue Heron Reserve Field trip

May 15th, 2022

We were so thankful that the weather cooperated on Friday for our Blue Heron Reserve Field trip! The sun came out and we even got to take our coats off. Even though we were very noisy, we were able to see some of our native BC frogs and a turtle. The Art lesson was wonderful and I rarely see the children that quiet and engaged.

Baking cookies

May 10th, 2022

We are slowly moving back to pre-covid protocols and I thought that I would bake cookies with the kids on May 18th in the morning from 9:00am-10:30. I am hoping to have one parent volunteer to help in the kitchen and two parents who would be willing to make a batch of cookie dough for us! Can you help us?
