The Bears' Blog December 20

The Bears’ Blog… The kindness of the season has been on display in every corner of the school making everyone feel so cared for!  Thank you to our ‘Christmas Cheer Committee’ who spoiled staff on Thursday morning by going door to door with treats!  It is such an honour to work in partnership alongside such caring families in helping create these amazing little citizens.

I am still in awe over the generosity of the folks over at Infinite Eye Photography who donated their time to take some amazing photographs of our incredible performers at our Pine Street Christmas concert.  If you haven’t already, check out the pictures for purchase on their website.  

Starting in January, classrooms will be invited on the third Wednesday of the month to submit students ‘best writing’ for consideration in our Principal’s Pick writing contest.  Prizes, in the form of toques & ball caps with our cool logo on them, were generously donated by Bradson Promotional Group.

As we move into the Christmas holiday, on behalf of all the staff that you honor with caring for your children, we would like to wish all members of our Pine Street families a safe and joyous holiday season and the very best in 2020.  Enjoy your break everyone!
