Signal Hill Circular - June 10th, 2022

June 10th, 2022
This week we celebrated meeting our first Signal Hill C.A.R.E.s goal! Students receive a ticket when they are demonstrating an example of Community, Acceptance, Respect, or Excellence which goes onto our Medicine Wheel. When the wheel is full, we celebrate our achievement with an assembly, a prize draw, and a school wide prize. Next week the whole school will have a bonus recess as their prize. We are so impressed with how caring our community has been. Our goal is to fill the wheel again by the end of the school year!
We have a few students who won, were runner up, or have honourable mention for their art at the Howe Sound Art Challenge.
For grade 6:
Arleigh Kemp for Runner Up
Julia Leigh for Honourable Mention
Marley Vertefeuille was the grade 7 winner!
First it was the chickens, now it's ducks! Welcome to the ducklings in Ms. Cameron and Ms. Madsen's class! They are so cute! We are so lucky to have so many students caring for our many animal friends.
