Week of June 13, 2022

Happy Sunday Skyhawks Parents & Guardians!

What a great week of celebrating together!   We started with a trip to the LEC to see our first FV Bandits Basketball Game with all the other middle schools in Langley and it was a blast!  Mr. Briscoe made quite a splash even being interview by CTV (https://bc.ctvnews.ca/video?clipId=2460186)!  Then our hallways and classrooms were filled with SCIENCE – as our grade 7 students showed off all the experiments they have conducted over the past month during the Science Fair.  Our students planted flowers in our Medicine Wheel garden with the help of Mrs. Matthews and Ms. Villeneuve.  Finally, on Friday morning our Amazing PAC treated our the Skyhawks Staff to a wonderful Teacher Appreciation Breakfast – the spread was out of this world!

This week is another busy one with highlights including the LSS Grad Walk on Wednesday, Skate board Day at Penzer and our “Return of the Musicians” Band Concert this Thursday at 7pm, and the Stafford Olympics all day on Friday!

Here’s the SCOOP!

New Community Resources/ Opportunities

I wanted to pass along some community supports that are being offered in the near future.  I’ve attached a PDF to this email with information, workshops and opportunities that are coming up. Some of these events are  time sensitive and are happening in the next week, so I wanted to make sure you had this information in time. I’ve also included a list of mental health supports that can be accessed locally.
