Stafford Scoop June 6, 2022

Posted: June 5, 2022


Week of June 6, 2022

Happy Sunday Skyhawks Parents & Guardians!
It’s hard to believe that we are 2 weeks into June already – especially with all the rain we’ve had this past week!  One thing the weather has been able to dampen is the excitement of the past week!  I apologize that last week’s Scoop did not make it out to parents from a mailing glithc – and so I want to acknowledge the tremendous efforts of our amazing PAC this year! They ran a fantastic PAC Spring Picnic last week, and have also raised funds, supported projects, and built school spirit for our students all year long – THANK YOU! 

This past week started out with all our Grade 8’s showing off their entrepreneurial and marketing skills at the Grade 8 Powerplay event.  Then Tuesday had our Grade 7s off to Camp Kakawa in Hope to make some amazing memories, meanwhile our Grade 6 music students are skillfully preparing for our “Return of the Musicians” Concert on June 16 at 7pm!  There were eyeball dissections, Math challenge problems, and Twin Day to cap it off.

This coming week has our school going to the LEC for the FV Bandits basketball game on Tuesday, and the Grade 7 Science Fair on Wednesday – here we go!

Here’s the SCOOP!

THE WEEK AHEAD AT HD STAFFORD

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.
