Although we are not able to have our traditional public Remembrance Day Assembly, Suncrest will be having a virtual assembly on Wednesday, November 10 to commemorate this very important occasion. We will record the session and, barring any technical issues, share a link to the assembly with families later that day.
We will be collecting donations for the Canadian Legion on Wednesday should you wish to contribute. You may also donate to the Legion directly by clicking HERE.
Schools are not in session on Thursday, November 11 as we take time to recognize the sacrifices made by our Veterans.
Suncrest will have two school wide Halloween activities this year. The first is a scaled back pumpkin patch and hot chocolate during the morning of Wednesday, October 27th and the second is the opportunity to wear school appropriate costumes on Friday, October 29th.
We will share the schedule for Wednesday early next week and parents are welcome to be on the perimeter of the pumpkin patch along the inside of the park fence to watch. Please send a plastic bag to help your child transport their pumpkin home and back to school on Friday once it has been carved.
Student costumes for Friday should not include full face masks, depict violence in anyway, or be overly revealing. We also ask that costumes do not depict or reinforce cultural or gender stereotypes . Thank you for your help in making Friday an inclusive and fun day for all of our students!
As a reminder, please refer to the daily health check for students and their families to determine if a student should attend school that day.
CLICK HERE to access the checklist online or to download the K-12 health check app onto your device.
Please keep in mind that the Health Check is Covid based and that if students have any other cold or flu symptoms, they should not attend school.
On Friday, October 1st, Suncrest Elementary will be supporting the Terry Fox Foundation and Cancer Research by participating in our annual Terry Fox Run. This year we will run during three different time slots. Parents are welcome to watch the race from outside the chain link fence along Rumble St. or Roseberry Ave. Teachers will share the time that their class is running closer to the event.
We will be having Orange Shirt Day at Suncrest on Wednesday, September 29th. We are encouraging all students and staff to wear orange to support children everywhere.
Wearing orange is meant to recognize the harm that was done to residential school students and to show a commitment to the principle that every child matters.
Thursday, September 30, 2021 marks the first National Day for Truth and Reconciliation.
Our Welcome Conversations for parents of Gr. 1-7 students will be Wednesday, September 22 and Thursday, September 23 starting at 2:10 pm.
On both Wednesday and Thursday we will have an early 2pm dismissal for all students K-7.
This is a 10 minute virtual chat (not at the school) meant to provide initial contact between parents and teachers and an opportunity to briefly discuss topics such as goals and expectations for the year, student hobbies/interests, school/home responsibilities and any questions that you may have. Scheduling links will be sent home soon.
The ﬁrst PAC meeting of the year will be Tuesday, September 28th, 2021 at 6:30 PM via ZOOM. We hope you’ll join us.
RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than Friday September 24th, 2021.
The link to the meeting will be e-mailed to parents attending by PAC. Thank you!
