Turner Valley School News: Winter Activities Keeping Everyone Warm

Owls and hearts - TVSCan you believe another month has come and gone? February is here and we are full speed ahead again after the break. Students and staff have been working hard as we focus on literacy and numeracy in the building. During the last week of January we celebrated Family Literacy day, which featured a camping theme which made many of us crave the warm summer days even more. Thank you to all of the parents and families who came out and supported our students. The Grade 5/6 Outdoor Ed class also enjoyed a snowshoe/cross country ski day. Though the snow was sparse we still had a great time.

On February 12th our second annual French Winter Carnival put on by Mrs. Baxter and the French club, takes place. Carnival is an opportunity for students in Grades 3 to 6 to learn about French culture through various games and activities modeled after the actual Quebec Winter Carnival. Also that day will be our Grade 4 assembly at 9:30am.

The February break (Feb. 15-19) is an excellent opportunity for students to reconnect with their friends and family and enjoy some winter activities. During this time teachers will be engaged in very important professional development activities to help further student learning in the building. Also, just a reminder that our next round of student led conferences will be March 8 & 9th, so mark your calendars. We cannot believe that this school year is already half over. We would like to extend our gratitude to all of the families, students and staff who make our school such a great place. We are looking forward to an amazing second half of the year.
