THIS WEEK’S NEWS

Thank you for a Great Assembly – R.E.S.P.E.C.T.

Last Friday, during our Character Counts Assembly, our amazing Student Council (with some guidance from Ms. Pon-Barry and Ms. Gules) led a wonderful school wide activity. 

Our current Character Counts Pillar is Respect, and break out rooms were arranged so that students could work together with a Student Council Rep, and create an acrostic poem using the letters R.E.S.P.E.C.T.  The variety of words and phrases were endless, and a unique poem emerged from each break out group.

Afterwards we got back together to share our poems and appreciate each other in our Spirit Day attire.

Please don’t miss the completed poems at the end of this Konnection!

Speaking of Respect – Thank you Kyle, Anna and Tracie

Earlier today Mr. L and Trudy had the good fortune to meet with some KPA reps to discuss parent ideas and input regarding re-opening for in person learning. It was very informative and helpful and we thank you all for your thoughtfulness.
