A MESSAGE FROM A PARENT...
If they cancel the rest of the school year, students would miss 2.5 months of education. Many people are concerned about students falling behind because of this. Yes, they may fall behind when it comes to classroom education...
But what if...❤️❤️❤️
What if instead of falling “behind", this group of kids are ADVANCED because of this? Hear me out...❤️❤️❤️
What if they have more empathy, they enjoy family connection, they can be more creative and entertain themselves, they love to read, they love to express themselves in writing. ❤️❤️❤️
What if they enjoy the simple things, like their own backyard and sitting near a window in the quiet. ❤️❤️❤️
What if they notice the birds and the dates the different flowers emerge, and the calming renewal of a gentle rain shower? ❤️❤️❤️
What if this generation are the ones to learn to cook, organize their space, do their laundry, and keep a well run home? ❤️❤️❤️
What if they learn to stretch a pound and to live with less? ❤️❤️❤️
What if they learn to plan shopping trips and meals at home?❤️❤️❤️
What if they learn the value of eating together as a family and finding the good to share in the small delights of the everyday?❤️❤️❤️
What if they are the ones to place great value on our teachers and educational professionals, librarians, public servants and the previously invisible essential support workers like truck drivers, grocers, cashiers, custodians, logistics, and health care workers and their supporting staff, just to name a few of the millions taking care of us right now while we are sheltered in place? ❤️❤️❤️
What if among these children, a great leader emerges who had the benefit of a slower pace and a simpler life to truly learn what really matters in this life?❤️❤️
What if they are AHEAD? ❤️❤️❤️❤️

Celebration assembly winners - 8.02.19
This week we were visited by the good people from the office of Tour de Yorkshire. We are super excited that the race will be running right past our school gate!!!! So…. a nice gentleman came in to tell us all about the different races and what it would mean for our school. We even got to look at the trophies that the winner get their names engraved onto (Miss Wroe and Mrs Tabbner even got to hold them and they were very heavy. They had to wear special gloves to protect the trophy).
Our school will be taking part in lots of exciting events running up to and on the day of the race. Stay tuned throughout the year to hear lots more information!
