We had a great turn out for out AGM/Meet the Teacher evening last week; thank you for taking time out of your busy schedules to attend. Several extra-curricular activities have just begun, or will be starting very soon. Your support of these activities through driving, coaching and cheering on the children is appreciated. Our grade 7 classes are off to camp next Monday, please keep all of the students and their teachers in your prayers. Construction will continue along Arthur Drive for approximately one more month. Thank you to everyone for your patience during this work. Having a sidewalk from Augustine House to Ladner will be great for our community. Thank you to Mr. Lan, a parent in our school, who is also the Director of Engineering for the Corporation of Delta, for explaining the project to our parents at the AGM last week.
