Eid Mubarak! We wish all our families and staff members celebrating a very happy Eid.

Attention: Parents of students in grade one and two, those students who were going to African Lion Safari on Monday, our trip is being rescheduled due to expected weather conditions. You will receive a separate communication also with more detail.

Monday this week we had our Grade 5 friends from EW Foster PS visit us for some fun in the learning commons getting ready to join us at Sherratt next year!

Both our Girls and Boys Soccer Teams enjoyed a tournament this week, where they were able to demonstrate their skills and love of the game. Go Gators! Thank you to Mr. Goral and Mr. Aidoo for coaching our teams!

On Thursday we welcomed our Volunteers into the Learning Commons for our Volunteer Appreciation Lunch. Thank you to all of our volunteers who help to make Sam Sherratt the place that it is, where community, staff and students work together to make it great!! Thank you to Ms. Turjman, Ms. Brazeau and Ms.Jerzyk for all of your hard work.

Our Symphonic Winds Band went to Canada’s Wonderland to perform, and Mr. Smith has shared with us, that our school was given exceptional feedback on our presentation and our professionalism. Good Work Gators!! Thank you to Mr. Smith for all of your hard work!

A reminder to grade 8 parents, there are a number of communications coming home with regard to grade 8 graduation, please be sure to complete all the permission forms and return them as soon as possible. The tickets are currently being distributed (4 per student) and we are putting the final touches on our ceremony planning for the evening. We are looking forward to a very special night for our graduates!

Buddy Bench: Last week our Buddy Bench was installed by the back doors. This Bench was donated by the Halton Learning Foundation and dedicated to students who felt alone at recess and needed some support. With the help of Mr. Charrey and his Peace Keeper group, this bench is monitored and Grade 6 students are trained to help/support their peers.

This week our Grade 6 Peace Buddy captains (Ava & Grace) went to all Grade 1-5 classes to talk to students about the bench and how to use it, students are really excited and we have already had some customers on the bench!

Royal Bank of Canada Teach Your Kids to Code Program:

This week and next we have guest instructor Jacquie Dolman from the RBC Teach Your Kids to Code program in the Learning Commons to provide an opportunity for students to enhance their coding skills. Students were taught skills such as block coding in order to create a game online using SCRATCH and the website.  We look forward to expanding this program next year to our primary students.

In Partnership,

Maggie Parker, Principal

Bita Watts - Vice Principal

and the Staff of Sam Sherratt
