TE Scott Spring Concert …. Here comes
…. Spring Fever!
Remember this year we chose not to have a Christmas Concert…. instead a Spring Concert. Staff and students have been planning, practicing and working on decorations for our Spring Concert happening next week. There will be singing and dancing with all classes performing. Please mark April 27th on your calendars and join us for one of our performances. There will be two. Our afternoon performance at 1 pm is free and our evening performance at 6:oo pm will be $2.00 per ticket with a maximum of 4 per family. The cost of the evening tickets will help pay for chair rental. Order forms for tickets will be coming home today.
April Showers…. really?
Rain rain go away…. it’s time for sunshine! Our West Coast recess has been put to the test this year. Thank you to all of our parents of our primary children who continue to send in an extra pair of clothes for their children. We certainly have needed them.
Aboriginal Enhancement Week May 1 – May 4
We are excited to be one of the first schools in Surrey to be hosting an Aboriginal Enhancement week; First Peoples in Residence Program. All students and staff at TE Scott will be participating in Aboriginal Enhancement cultural presentations throughout May 1st to May 4th. Our week will begin with an Opening Assembly May 1st ~ 8:45 – 9:30. During our traditional opening we welcome Coleen Pierre to perform an Honour Song and Traditional Drumming. Throughout our week we welcome Cultural Facilitators: Richard Pierre, Kayleigh Leon and Mavis Dumont. The First Peoples in Residence Program will help to enhance the learning of all students around Aboriginal culture, traditions, history and language of our traditional and local communities. For our Closing Assembly we are excited to welcome Alex Wells. As a three-time world champion hoop dancer, Alex Wells, often finds himself an ambassador of First Nations culture. The Lil’wat dancer has performed across North America and as far away as Taiwan, New Zealand and Europe. Hoop dancing is a tradition shared by nations across North America. There are strong elements of storytelling involved: The shapes made with the hoops represent plants and animals that have specific meaning in each culture and belong to legends, artwork and family design. Everyone in our TE Scott Community is welcome to come and join us for our Opening and Closing Assemblies, and of course, any time throughout the week to join in the cultural presentations in our classrooms. Please come and join in the learning and festivities.
