Starting Monday, February 6th through Friday, February 10th students will have the opportunity to send a Friend Gram to a friend. What is a Friend Gram? A Friend Gram is a card where students can write a positive message to a friend, or even tell them why they are important to them! This friend does not need to be in their class, but they will need to know which class they are in. Leadership students will be delivering the Friend Grams on Valentine’s Day and the best part is that it is free!
We will also be having a Spirit Day on Valentine’s Day, February 14th! Students can earn House Points for their Sports Day Team by wearing either: Pink, Red, or White. They can also come to school wearing clothing that has hearts on it! Students will earn 1 House Point for wearing any of these colours! If they would like to earn an additional point for their Team they can also wear any accessories such as a Valentine Day headband. So, in total they can earn 2 House Points for their Sports Day Team! Happy Valentine’s Day!

Black Excellence Day is an opportunity to celebrate the joy, resilience, contributions, and achievements of Black People around the world. We want to honour the history and narratives of the past while uplifting and supporting the voices of our futures.
Black Excellence Day was created by the Ninandotoo Society and the date was chosen in honour of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.’s birthday which was January 15, 1929.
Staff and students are invited to wear black on this day!
Suncrest will be having two dress up opportunities and one shopping opportunity after our winter musical performances this week! Thursday is Winter Accessories Day – students are invited to wear their favourite toques, scarves, mittens, and gloves etc.
Thursday afternoon Divisions 1 and 3 will be hosting a Suncrest Kid’s Market. The two classes have created a number of items as part of an entrepreneurial unit they have been working on. Most items will be sold for between $1 and $5 with lots of items at the inexpensive end and some that are a little more costly. Suncrest classes will tour the market Thursday afternoon and may purchase items if they wish.
Friday is our Pancake Pajama Breakfast to send us off to the holidays in a festive way! Students and staff are encouraged to wear their PJ’s on Friday.
Suncrest will be having a Food Drive from Monday, December 5th to Friday, December 9th. All items will be donated to a local organization in need. Any non-perishable items will be much appreciated! Students are asked to bring in their donations during the week of December 5th. Leadership students will be visiting each class daily to count how many items have been donated and each day an announcement will be made with which Primary and Intermediate class brought in the most donations!
We are looking forward to spreading kindness to those in need!
This Friday will be our next Spirit Day. The theme for this Spirit Day is “Zoom Meeting” which means business/professional attire on top and pyjamas or comfies below! We hope that you can participate in this fun day! House Points for Sports Day will be allocated to those that participate!
