Dear Eagle View Families,
February has been a month of “sharing, caring and moving!”
Thank you to the many families who joined in on the fun during the two days of Student Led Conferences. What pride the children took in sharing their learning and daily activities! Thanks, as well, to the team of parents who organized the Scholastic Book Fair. The fair helps boost reading opportunities for children both at home and at school; EVE library benefits from the sales, too!
Throughout the month, students highlighted and celebrated kindness and caring. In addition to class projects, students created pink links of kindness. Students described a kind act they had performed or witnessed, wrote them on strips of paper and then joined them to make a school chain. The chain was unveiled by our “Secret Service Agents” in a Kindness Assembly this past week. Kudos to Divisions 2, 4, 5 and 7 as well as the Eagle View Drama Club and Choir who performed and shared their kindness thoughts. The caring also extended from our friends and family to the world around us. Visitor, Gary, and his wolf, Tundra, enthralled our grades 2—5 students as they learned about the importance of caring for our environment and ecosystems.
Children also learned about cooperation, team play and sportsmanship (as well as honing in on athletic skills!) in several ways. Eagle View Swim Club members represented our school in both the Preliminary and City Swim Meets. (Thanks to Coach Wiersma!) The grade 4/5 basketball team put the balls in the hoop during the Spectrum Family Basketball Tournament. (Thanks to Coaches Houldsworth and Nast!) Dsdance, student performers from the Sunshine Coast, shared their love of dance and concern for the environment in a beautiful dance presentation a few weeks ago. Three members of the Royals Hockey Team took on the EVE grade 3 Floor Hockey Team (Thanks to Coach Borich!) And, to round up the athletic events, this past Thursday, representatives from the Greater Victoria Football Association, demonstrated and taught some key skills in football to a group of eager eyed students during a noon hour demo.
The fun and learning continues as we move into March. We wish you and your family a Happy Spring Break!
