Week of June 6th

June 5, 2016


Hopefully that weather is a sign of things to come this summer…that was a hot one! Here is what’s coming up This Week At HDSMS: June 6th

Information To Share:

Grad Walk: This Thursday is our first annual grad walk. The LSS grads will arrive at 12:30 so we can celebrate this great accomplishment with them while reminding our own students what lies ahead of them at Langley Secondary. 

Gold & Green Day: To celebrate our first annual Grad Walk, we would like to encourage staff and students to wear Gold and Green

PAC Meeting: Just a reminder we have a PAC meeting this week on Wednesday at 6:30. All parents are welcome!

IFA Acceptance Letters: Just a heads up that Grade 6 IFA acceptance letters are being sent to elementary schools this week. 

Wrestling On Hold: The after school wrestling program is currently on hold. We have Chris Rinke coming during the grade 7 & 8 elective blocks to work with our grade 8s

Class Requests For Next Year: Each spring staff put in a considerable amount of time in creating classes for the following year that are conducive to powerful learning for each student. And while we have many things to base these decisions, parent input can be helpful as well. There are no guarantees, however if you have some input you’d like to share you must email Mr Davids (sdavids@sd35.bc.ca) prior to June 17th.

Happy Ramadan: Ramadan Kareem to all students, friends, family and colleagues who celebrate and experience this special time.
