Farewell to Mrs Klan

I took Mrs. Klan out for breakfast this morning and then we returned to GES for an assembly to honour her-- 37 years teaching and so many hearts touched.

For those who participated I want to pass on a heart-felt thank you. It was a wonderful tribute to an outstanding teacher. Thank you Mrs. Klan for all that you have done for us! Best wishes in your future endeavors as you begin your retirement.

There was a celebration at GES this afernoon/evening in honour of National Aboriginal Day. There were crafts, singing, words of wisdom from a Squamish Chief, along with a pot luck dinner and a lot of fellowship.

Those in attendance really seemed to enjoy the time together.

What beautiful weather for this event!

Until tomorrow-- remember your pirate gear for the Spirit Assembly honouring Mrs. Klan.

Have a great evening.

Covered for Mrs. Servo-Sept Class

I covered for Mrs. Servo-Sept this afternoon, as she took the GES Games Crew on their year-end field trip-- they went kayaking thanks to the PAC.

The class was delightful and after USSR time we went outside and enjoyed the great weather with a game of Capture the Flag. The Green Team was victorious over the Red Team 2-1. It was good fun and they ran until they were very tired.

They finished the afternoon up working at a variety of centers. The students were full of energy all afternoon.

Just a reminder that the Aboriginal Gathering tomorrow, from 4:30- 7:30 p.m. will be a celebration of National Aboriginal Day-- all are welcome. There will be a pot-luck dinner for those interested.

Until tomorrow.

Field Trip, Birthday & Art

The Kindergarten classes were getting ready to go on their field trip to Davis Bay and a got a picture of two excited students taking up their class attendance. When I ventured to Mrs. Klan's class I heard a birthday song... we sang another rendition of Happy Birthday when I went in the class. The two students seemed appreciative.

The third picture is an art project that Mrs. Kopeck's class has done. It is great to see how far these K students have come.

Division 1 is on a field trip to Katherine Lake today, so it should be a bit quieter than usual.

Until later.
