Updates for the Upcoming Week

February 16, 2018

Happy New Year! 

A few dates to keep in mind for the upcoming week. 

We have another 4 day week since Friday, February 23rd is a Professional Day!

Walton celebrates the Lunar New Year with the Lion Dance on Tuesday, February 20th at 10:45am.  We are using a new group for this year’s performance.   Parents are welcome to attend.  Thanks to Mr. Chiang for arranging the performance.  Mr. Chiang also writes:  "Happy Lunar New Year! As we say farewell to the year of rooster, we welcome the new year of the dog! In the Walton classroom community, a variety of celebrations are happening: paper lantern making, classroom calligraphy, Fly Over Canada and China special field trip for the intermediate classes, classroom dances…etc. As the Mandarin team leader of the school and on behalf of all the teachers here at Walton, I would like to wish you a prosperous and healthy year with your family! Xin nian kuai le (which is happy new year in Mandarin!!)."


I’d like to extend an invitation to families who’d like to bring a personal item that represents their cultural background  to school to place in our Display Case this month.  Walton has a diverse community of learners! If you’d like to send something along, please ensure it is accompanied with a brief description that can be placed beside the item.  The display case will be kept locked.   We’ll display items for the week of February 19-March 2nd.


We’ve noticed that students have been arriving on time more frequently in the past few weeks.  Thank you!  We are tracking students who are chronically arriving late.


You will be receiving your child’s second term report card on Friday, March 16th.  March 16th is also the last day before Spring Break!


Also, if you are long range planner, you'll notice that we've started to put up dates (holidays, professional days, etc.) for 2018-2019 into our school website calendar.  These dates are determined by the school board.  There are still two more school based professional days that we have yet to add.   Please be mindful that some of the dates in February 2019 may change with the announcement that BC Family is moving to the third Monday.
