Signal Hill Circular - November 19th, 2021

Signal Hill Circular

for the week ending Friday, November 19th, 2021

We are honoured to be living, working and playing on the traditional, unceded ancestral territories of the St'át'yemc Nation.


Dear Signal Hill Families,
With our first snowfall this week, things are exciting at Signal Hill! Last week our staff and students honoured our veterans with a school-wide assembly. We were proud to have our students lead the assembly. Our staff also participated in a Professional Development Day. Some of our staff participated in a Wild BC Workshop and others participated in a non-violent crisis intervention training.
A few reminders and updates:
With the cold, wet, and snowy weather in full swing, please remember to send your child with clothing that is appropriate for the weather conditions. Also, please send along dry clothing for when they do get wet outside. We also have some extra clothes that have been donated to our school. 
Sea to Sky School District Report Card information can be found here. Your child's teacher will be communicating further information. 
Due to ongoing COVID-19 challenges and an abundance of caution, the Signal Hill Winter Concert will be a digital film this year. A link will be provided to families before the winter holiday break. 
Signal Hill's blended classes have been hard at work preparing for our Winter Craft Fair. Students have been busy crafting a variety of handmade goods including: candles, artwork, jewelry, toys, ornaments, and even some pet treats! Further details about when the Winter Craft Fair will take place will be announced next week! Stay tuned!
