Information To Share

Professional Development Days This Week: Just a reminder that this Thursday is a staff collaboration day … students are dismissed at 1:34pm. This Friday is one of two re-designed curriculum development days. Staff will be a district-wide event so there is no school for students.

Congrats to our grade 8 girls basketball team: Our Gr.8 Girls basketball team came 1st in the SRT tournament over the weekend. Please congratulate the girls if you see them on Monday.

Kwantlen Student Nurses – Over the next few weeks, they will be here to work with classes on Social and Community Health curricular competencies. We have two student nurses from Kwantlen who will be presenting information on the sexual health portion of the curriculum. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact administration.

Bottle For Athletics: HD Stafford Middle has opened an account at the Langley Bottle Depot (20137 Industrial Avenue) It’s an easy NO SORTING drop off service with proceeds going right back into our athletics programs. The account is under HD Stafford Athletics please specify this when you or your teams drop off any recyclables. Encourage all of your teams and parents to use this account, and pump it up as the holidays are a great time. Thanks for helping build HD Stafford Athletics.
