Remember to wear orange and black and save your costumes for Trick or Treating tomorrow night.

Have fun and be safe!

Principal's Message-October 2012

We are a month into the school year and I see everyone is settling into a routine. The month of September has been quite busy! I would like to thank all of the families who were able to attend the Back to School BBQ. We had a great turnout. Thank you to the staff and Big Bob’s BBQ for serving up hotdogs, hamburgers, drinks and treats and to Mother Nature for providing us such a beautiful evening.

There are many Leadership activities up and running at Ruth Pawson School: Safety Patrol, Cross-Country running, Volleyball and SRC. It is wonderful to see so many Pawson Panthers want to come to school and get involved in leadership activities. Getting involved in school activities helps students develop their sense of Belonging, Mastery, Generosity and Independence. You can find our schedules here on the website under Extra Curricular Activities.

As always I encourage parents to get involved in their child’s education. We will be sending home Goal Setting forms on Thursday, October 4th. This is an excellent opportunity to sit down with your child and discuss their plan for school success. Please sign and return this form to your child’s homeroom teacher on October 12th.

A lot of important information is posted here on our school website. I encourage you to bookmark this website and check it regularly for updates. You will notice our School Calendar can also be found on the website.  We are also on Twitter. Follow us @pawsonschool.

I encourage you to keep in close contact with your child’s teachers and if you have any questions or concerns please call us to set up an appointment.

Terry Fox Walk/Run

Ruth Pawson School is helping to raise money for the Terry Fox Foundation.  For every $1.00 your child brings they will get a shoe to put their name on and post in the hallway as we walk to help cure cancer.

Our Terry Fox Walk/Run will be held this Thursday, September 27 at 12:50pm.  If Terry could do it, so can we!

Spelling Begins

Our  class has begun our spelling program  this year.  Students will get their lists on Fridays and we will do word work activities throughout the week and then have our tests on Thursdays.  Our test for lesson 1, is this Thursday.  Please help your child to study their words.
