It has finally arrived!  Spring, and Spring Break!  This will be short and sweet edition of the Bobcat’s Den, with some photos from the Languages Food Truck experience, a few goodbyes and some information about what’s happening when we return in April.

IN THE CLASSROOM

On Monday, French and Spanish students were treated to French crepes when Crêperie La Bohème, a food truck from Vancouver, arrived and parked in front of the school.  In French or Spanish, students were able to order sweet buckwheat crepes with delicious fillings such as Nutella, chocolate, butter and sugar, banana, and various other fruits.

It was a beautiful warm, sunny day and students enjoyed getting out of their classes briefly to enjoy some authentic French street food. 

 

STAFF FAREWELL

Mr. Pue in search of his phone. Staff had some fun and wrapped ‘everything’ in his office as good bye ‘gifts’!

This week was the last week for a few of our staff members.  As you know, Mr. Mike Pue has accepted a position at the School Board Office, which will officially begin in April.  He will still be in and around the building for timetabling, graduation and a few other training jobs.  We are also sad to say goodbye to Mr. Rusty Jaques, who has accepted a new teaching position at Correlieu Secondary in Quesnel.  He says thank you and farewell to all of his students.  One of our counselling staff, Ms. Lindsey Zaragoza, is beginning her maternity leave after Spring Break as well.   We wish her and her new baby (when it arrives!) all the best.

 

 

 

FLEX RESET

As will any break, it will be important to reestablish some expectations on student use of FLEX time after we return from the break; therefore, April 4th will be a FLEX Reset, with further reset information broadcasted throughout the week.  We are looking specifically at issues surrounding attendance, hallway occupation and lates this April.  Please reiterate with your student the benefits of properly utilizing FLEX time.
