WELCOMING A NEW YEAR

Dear Cambridge Community

There is one more week before we welcome our students, parents, and teachers back to school. We hope this week’s post finds you happy, healthy, and not too tired after the hustle and bustle of the holiday season.

As I write this week’s post, I think back to all the happenings, special events, and  activities that our students and teachers have taken part in; it’s hard to believe that classes have only been in session for four months:

  • Cross Country Season
  • Meet the Teachers and Community BBQ
  • Assemblies and Hot Lunch Days
  • Visitors from Holland Come to Tour Cambridge
  • Terry Fox Run
  • Orange Shirt Day Activities
  • 3rd Annual Cardboard Challenge
  • Reading Under the Stars
  • Primary Halloween Parade
  • Halloween Family Dance
  • Remembrance Day Assembly
  • Making Cambridge Planter Boxes
  • Volleyball Season
  • Book Fair
  • Duffle Bag Theatre Performance
  • PAC Gingerbread Houses and Pancake Lunch
  • Christmas Sing-a-Long

The list goes on and on…

On behalf of all the teachers and staff at Cambridge, we hope you enjoy one more holiday week, and we wish all our students and parents a Happy New Year.  We look forward to another busy and productive term of learning, growing, and working together.

See you January 3rd.

BUDDY, CAMBRIDGE’S ELF ON THE SHELF

Buddy did stay around all last week, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday, having fun at Cambridge before heading back to the North Pole.

And on Saturday, December 24th Buddy enjoyed himself and found a few treats that were left behind in the staffroom and in Ms. Lacey’s candy bus.

We wonder if we will see Buddy back again at Cambridge next year?  Thanks for visiting our school, Buddy, and helping us enjoy the magic of the holiday season.

Look what Buddy found in Mr. Nelson’s office.

VIDEOS OF THE WEEK: MAKING A DIFFERENCE

Every year many of us make resolutions to eat better, exercise more, and do something that improves the quality of our own lives, but this year, why not resolve to also do something that makes a difference in someone else’s life? Studies show that doing an act of kindness is as good for the heart as it is for the soul.

As 2016 comes to an end, I begin to think about how we can continue to work together here at Cambridge to make a difference not only in our own lives, but in the lives of others. How will you choose to make a difference in the new year?

I invite you to watch the two videos below and take some time to discuss the messages shared and the meanings behind them with your child.
