- EARTHQUAKE PREPAREDNESS – ARE YOU PREPARED?
- WALK/ROLL TO SCHOOL WEEK – A GREAT SUCCESS
- CAMBRIDGE STUDENT VOTE 2018
- PAC NEWS
On October 18th, Cambridge Elementary students participated in the first Earthquake drill of the new school year. It was part of a larger initiative titled, The Great British Columbia Shake Out, where over 360,000 other students in the province practiced school district protocols to prepare for an earthquake. Within the Surrey School District, schools participate monthly to practice fire, lock down/out and earthquake safety drills. All students at Cambridge practiced DUCK, COVER AND HOLD wherever they were and listened carefully to instructions given by adults. It was a great opportunity to talk with students about what preparations have been made at home in the event of a major earthquake. If your family has not set up an emergency response plan, Emergency Management BC has a great resource titled, PreparedBC: BC’s central resource for emergency preparedness information that has a wealth of resources for your family.
The weather was spectacular for last week’s Walk/Roll to School Week, and Cambridge students came out in droves each morning to walk and roll to school. Our friendly competition with Goldstone was a great incentive to choose an active way to get to school and we prevailed. Our classroom tallies indicated that students made over 1800 trips to school on foot or scooter or bike last week. Awesome work, Cambridge community.
Thank you to everyone who participated in the WALKING SCHOOL BUS last Wednesday. It was a pleasure to have City of Surrey employees, the RCMP, and ICBC representatives join us for a morning walk to school.
As we look at the forcast for the coming week, the Fall rainy season may be about to greet us. In preparation for this change in weather, we want to remind our community that all students are expected to be outside for recess and lunch each day (unless the weather is extremely fierce). Please encourage your child to dress for the outdoors as they head to school each morning. Boots to play in the puddles with, a waterproof jacket with hood, gloves, and an umbrella make for a more enjoyable day for students as the weather become more winter like.
On October 18th, division 6 planned and hosted Cambridge’s Student Vote. We had acting Voting Clerks, Voting Officers, and Scrutineers. Voting Officers sealed and signed the ballot boxes. Voting Clerks checked for identification and crossed out voter names and obtained signatures, while the Voter Officers dealt with the ballots. Our Scrutineers observed and directed voters. At the end of the vote, Voting Officers opened up the sealed boxes. Voting Officers and Clerks took the enormous task of examining all the ballots and declaring them as “accepted” or “rejected” and then tallied up all the votes. The entire voting process was as authentic as could be!
- Thank you to all the Volunteers who helped at the Halloween Dance. It was a huge success!
- Tomorrow is Hot Dog Hot lunch for those who ordered.
- Fresh Street Bagged Hot Lunch is Monday November 5. Please order by Sunday October 28
Campaign has ended! All unsold books and book orders need to go to the classroom and from there they will be brought to the office to be recorded/processed ASAP! Thank you to everyone who participated in support of the playground addition.
Please return all books ASAP! Thank you to everyone who participated in support of the playground addition.
Thank you! Allyson, Taryn, Jaime and Miriam
