Triathlon practices are cancelled for the month of February. I was recently in a car accident and need to focus on recovering from that for now.
Practices will resume in March. I will send out more information about those practices closer to the date.
The children have been telling me about the swimming that they have been doing either in lessons or with their family! It sounds fantastic! Good job, families!
We will receive information about visits with Burnaby North and Alpha. If your child is attending a high school other than those two next year, be sure to contact the school to find out information about their grade 7/8 transition activities.
Today, the students received a pamphlet with an outline of the various programs offered at Burnaby high schools. Have a look at it with them and see what courses/programs might be a good idea for your child to take in preparation for their future career.

Hip hop lessons have begun at Capitol Hill and the students are looking fantastic! The performance will be on Friday, December 7 at 1pm. This is usually a popular event for parents to attend, so make sure to come early so that you get a good view . . . and come even earlier than early if you are hoping to get a seat. Seating is very limited since half of the gym is used for the performance, so it is highly likely that you will be standing.
