    Hello Bert Edwards Families! Just a few notes as we head into - hard to believe - the holiday season:

    We are participating in the "Be A Hunger Hero" program in partnership with the Kamloops Branch of the Salvation Army. From Monday November 27th until Friday December 8th we are asking that non-perishable donations be sent to the school for those less fortunate. Many schools in our district will be participating in this worthwhile initiative, and the school that donates the most food - as determined by weight - will be rewarded with a Pizza Party courtesy of the Salvation Army! Thanks so much in advance for your support!

    Next, over the Christmas break, our school district tradespeople would like to do some painting in the gym. They may do some prep work ahead of time, or have a little to complete after the break. If you have any questions or concerns regarding the painting, please contact the school.

    Also upcoming: our PAC Christmas craft fair this Sunday Nov 12th from 10am-2pm at the school, and the PAC Christmas store will run two days - Dec 5th and 6th at the school.

    Lastly, just a reminder our Christmas concert will take place on Wednesday December 20th with performances at 1pm and 6pm.

    Tomorrow is Orange Shirt Day

    ORANGE SHIRT DAY - All Children Matter
    Orange Shirt Day is a legacy of the St. Joseph Mission (SJM) residential school commemoration event held in Williams Lake, BC, Canada, in the spring of 2013.  It grew out of Phyllis' story of having her shiny new orange shirt taken away on her first day of school at the Mission, and it has become an opportunity to keep the discussion on all aspects of residential schools happening annually. 

    The date was chosen because it is the time of year in which children were taken from their homes to residential schools, and because it is an opportunity to set the stage for anti-racism and anti-bullying policies for the coming school year.  It also gives teachers time to plan events that will include children, as we want to ensure that we are passing the story and learning on to the next generations.

    Orange Shirt Day is also an opportunity for First Nations, local governments, schools and communities to come together in the spirit of reconciliation and hope for generations of children to come.
