School is Closed on Monday, November 11th

November 08, 2019

School will be closed on Monday, November 11th for Remembrance Day.  We will re-open on Tuesday, November 12th.

Walton honoured Remembrance Day today.  We had presentations from our Grade 3 divisions (Mrs. Meadows, Ms. Pass, Ms. Wegrich, Mrs. Shum and Mrs. Sluis’ classes) perform “Where Do We Find Peace?” and the Walton Choir performed “Come in From the Firefly Darkness”.    Thanks to Mr. Dyer-Dietz for his work with both groups.  Thanks to Mrs. Rajwani and Mrs. Peragine's Division 3 for starting our ceremony with ‘O Canada’ in both English and French.   Mr. Meston returned to play the bagpipes as each division presented their wreath.  I’d like to thank all of you for your generous donations to the Poppy Fund.  We haven’t counted the monies, but it’s clear we have more donations this year.   The donations will help the Canadian Legion and our veterans. 

I hope that your family takes time to attend one of the Remembrance Day ceremonies in our community. Here are the four ceremonies in our area, as reported in the Tri-City News:

There are four Remembrance Day services in the Tri-Cities, starting at around 10:30 a.m.:
• Coquitlam: Blue Mountain Park (975 King Albert Ave. at Veterans Way);
• Port Coquitlam: Veterans Park (2580 Shaughnessy St.);
• Port Moody: Port Moody Arts Centre (2425 St. Johns St.);
• and Belcarra regional park (2375 Bedwell Bay Rd.).

Does anyone have an old juke box?  Our Winter Musical is called “Jingle Bell Jukebox” and it would be great if we had a juke box as a prop.  If you do have an old juke box and you’re willing to let us use it, please let me know!  Thanks!  We found that most of the kids don’t know what a jukebox is.

Your child will receive their first report card on December 6th.  Please keep in mind that all report cards will be using proficiency scales.  This includes Grades 4 and 5, who have traditionally received letter grades.  This information was shared back in May.
