Principal’s Update

We welcome you back and hope you had a very blessed time with your family celebrating our Saviour’s birth.

Everyone was excited to come back to see everyone but getting back into the routine of things can be difficult for everyone (yes, including the adults).  Students will probably be tired for the first while, so be prepared for the possibility of a few rougher days …. change is difficult for adults and can be especially difficult for children.

We have a number of after school activities that will be offered near the end of January until approximately Spring Break.  The forms are came home yesterday for these activities which include Mad Science, Bricks 4 Kidz, Archery, and Coding.  Please send in the registration forms, if interested, by January 17.  Hopefully all information you require is on the forms, but if you have any questions, please contact the office or myself.

I have heard so many words of praise regarding BSLS and its’ staff over the last few weeks and I really appreciate hearing all of the wonderful comments (and even suggestions or ideas).  The best form of flattery that you could demonstrate to us is to tell your family and friends about us.  If you know of anyone who is looking for childcare or for a great school, please share that we are having an Open House at our Birchdale Location on Wednesday, Jan. 24 from 6-8 pm and again on Thursday, Feb. 15 from 6-8 pm.  We also will be having an Open House at our St. Mary’s location (1541 St. Mary’s Road) on May 9 from 6-8 pm.  We encourage personal tours when it is convenient for families to come and visit the school during our open hours or evenings, whichever  works best for them.  To arrange a tour they can call Mrs. English at 204-984-9600 x4.  Please tell them to tell us you sent them!

Advanced violin will begin again on Monday, January 22 from 3:20-4:20.  New participants are welcome to audition.  If your child is interested please contact Mr. Badiuk directly at bbadiuk@bsls.ca or call the office at 204-984-9600.

Parents in Partnership’s next meeting is on Thursday, February 1st from 6:30 – 7:30 pm followed by Pastor Schnarr holding an opportunity to learn and discuss “How Do We View Christianity?” from 7:45 – 8:30 pm.  Free babysitting will be provided for the evening.

I Love to Read month kicks of on February 1st!  BSLS plans activities for one week  of the month and also invite parents/families to make arrangements to come and share a book with a class or school.  If you are interested, please contact your child’s teacher  to make arrangements.  Complete details of our planned events will come in the next few weeks!
Have a wonderful week!
Mrs. McCrea
