December 9, 2018
And then there were two …. can’t believe how fast the month is already going as we head towards Christmas. We have so much going on in and around the school so please read through all the information carefully.
New Information To Share:
Report Cards Distributed On Friday: Just a reminder that report cards will be distributed electronically this Friday. You can go to this link to log into MyEdBC to access the reports. This website will also assist you if you’ve forgotten your password or have never logged in. You may request a paper copy of the report card at the office. starting Monday December 17th.
Pick Up/Drop Off: Just a reminder to those that drive students to school and pick up after …. the center lane on the East side of the building is a DRIVE THRU lane. Please do not stop in that lane to pick up or drop of students.
Band Concert: This Thursday is our Christmas band concert starting at 7:00pm. All families are welcome to join us for some Christmas spirit.
Nite To December Christmas Concert: We will be having our annual Nite To Remember show on December 18th at 12:00 and December 19th at 6:00pm. It is a great opportunity to showcase the many talents of our students. And there will be a special guest appearance! Looking forward to seeing our Stafford Community in attendance.
Information From Last Week:
House Team Hallway Decorating Contest: We will be holding a (holiday themed) hallway decorating contest between house teams. The winning hallway will be decided by admin the last week before the break, with the winner announced and points awarded at our spirit assembly. See Mundeep if you have any questions surrounding this.
Rafiki bracelets: Bracelets that were ordered this weekend and hopefully will be here before the winter break, but with the Canada Post strike, I guess we just need to keep our fingers crossed. If you wanted one but missed the deadline, you can go to https://ca.shop.metowe.com/pages/rafiki-bracelet to order your directly.
Stafford’s Spirit of Christmas Store: Please bring in any of your gently used household decor (example: picture frames), jewelry, clothes, books, toys and more. Me to We is going to set up a store with all prices under $5. Students (and staff) will have an opportunity to shop for gifts, have them wrapped so it’s all a surprise for their loved ones at home. All proceeds will go to support Toys for Tots – or two of the girls wanted to shop for toys, wrap them, and take them to BC Children’s hospital for kids who have to spend the holidays there. This was a student driven idea. They worked out all the details themselves and this is probably the only piece they asked for my help with! There will be a sign up for your class to come and shop.
WE Day Holiday Cards: Holiday cards order forms are out! Please forward your student, teacher and student teacher forms and money as they come in to Mundeep’s classroom (120) or mailbox and a helpful Red house 8 elf will fill the order and put it in your mailbox for you to deliver. All cards were original student designs. These 5 were chosen from some tough school wide grade 8 competition. All profits will go to support Me to We (WE Villages). Thanks in advance for you support 😊
School Status Alerts: Given that we are heading into the winter season, it’s a good time to remind our Skyhawks Nation where they can get information regarding the status of HD Stafford Middle School. We will always keep you posted through our normal channels of communication. The more real time information will be through our text subscription (Remind), Facebook and Twitter. We also will share information via email. Final, you can go to the district website which you can access by clicking here.
