Orange shirt day has been declared on September 30th annually and has been happening for the past 6 years in Canada. The events were designed to commemorate the residential school experience, to witness and honour the healing journey of the survivors and their families, and to commit to the ongoing process of reconciliation. Chief Justice Murray Sinclair challenged all of the participants to keep the reconciliation process alive. This year September 30th falls on a Sunday. At South Slope / BCSD we will be commemorating this day on Monday October 1st. Students are invited to wear Orange Shirts on this day.
Important Please Note
We are asking that drivers dropping off and picking up students obey the safety signs and regulations that are in place. These signs are there for the safety of your children. Please do not drive through the staff parking lot, slow down, drive alert and do not park in front of crosswalks as this blocks visibility. There have been several close calls and accidents because these signs have not been adhered to. Keeping our kids safe is everyone’s responsibility!
The Scholastic Book Fair will be here Monday, Sept.17th until Thursday, Sept. 20th! Parent volunteers needed. Please sign up outside the library or speak to Mrs. Araujo. Come and find a great book and help support the school library. Thank you!
