Happy Sunday! Hope everyone is enjoying their weekend. Here’s what you need to know about the upcoming week.
New Information To Share:
Track Meet A Success: What an awesome day last Friday was! Our students competed so well as we held our annual HD Stafford Track Meet. The winners will represent our school at the District Middle Track Meet on June 4th. The day was captured perfectly in this 5 minute video montage (click here).
Pro D This Friday: Just a reminder that this Friday is a professional development day for staff. Students are not in attendance.
Volunteer Appreciation Lunch: Our annual volunteer appreciation lunch has been set for Wednesday June 12th from 12:00 – 1:30 in the Library. Our school is very fortunate to have many volunteers working with athletics, after school programs, events, classrooms, and our breakfast and lunch programs. Invitations will be sent out and we hope to see everyone who contributes to our school out to be celebrated.
Information From Last Week:
DATE CHANGE For Neon Dance: The date of the upcoming dance is changing as our grade 7s are at camp on the original date. The Neon Dance will now be held on Thursday May 23rd.
Phone Use And Social Media: It seems that there has been an increase of issues arising outside of school hours between students on social media accounts (Instagram, SnapChat, etc). While these often end up showing themselves at HD Stafford, it would be extremely helpful if parents could be diligent about checking their child’s phones on a regular basis. It is important that you know how your child is using their social media to interact with others.
LSS 110th Anniversary Celebration: LSS would like to extend an invitation to attend the Langley Secondary School 110th Anniversary event on June 8th … click here for details.
