Lest We Forget.....

This is the message that we send to all of those who fought for our freedom.  A special thanks goes out to Mrs. Johnson's class for leading the Remembrance Day assembly yesterday.  Although it is not a "celebration", it is a time for our students to come together to reflect on the historical significance in a way they can understand.

Indigenous Veterans Day - November 8

November 8th is a day marked to honour the contributions of Indigenous Peoples to the Canadian Military.

"Did you know that First Nations served in the Canadian Military at a higher rate than any other group in this great nation? More than 4,000 Indigenous people served Canada in the First World War. In fact, First Nations, Inuit and Métis people served Canada in all the great conflicts and peace support missions of the 20th century."

Good Morning Brent Kennedy Families!

Lots of fabulous things have been happening around our school!  Special thanks go out to our PAC for their organization of the Art Cards for Kids fundraiser.  These cards will be back well in time to be sent out for Christmas!

Today you should have received an email regarding the expectations around Halloween.  If you are unsure about your child's costume, just give me a call at the school and we can chat.

From the Principal Sept 18

Happy Sunday everyone!

The weather sure is starting to change; we are seeing more warm and fuzzy coats in the morning. Make sure you help your child dress for the weather, although predicting that is challenging in September!

It's great to see the Multi-Age program has already gone on a field trip to Kokanee Creek Park.  I know other fieldtrips are in the works; this year there will be extra paperwork to fill out so please be prepared for that; it is an initiative that is being done across the district,

September 12 Principal's Weekly Blog

Good Morning,  Brent Kennedy Community!

Thank you to all of our staff and families for getting through the bottleneck of the first week of school startup!  So sweet to see the Kindergarten children and their families register and pop into the building.   We are planning to do more multi-age actitivities this year than we have been able to over the past couple years as we focus on this school & community-wide goal that we developed in May.
