Creator Great Spirit as we gather together in this circle we are thankful for each one as we remember and honour “the little ones” whose lives ended at Kamloops residential school those many years ago – May the ancestors watch over them – May the road to the other side be graced by tall majestic pine trees with sweet scented healing flowers along the way – little birds singing their lament acknowledging their passing – May candles lit in their honour light their way – May the angels comfort them along with our prayers as we send our love and wrap them in warmth protecting their journey.  We also remember the families left behind – May they know comfort and peace with all the love we send.

Hych-guh Siem!

We will be spending this week until Tuesday, June 8 (215 hours), acknowledging and recognizing the residential school tragedy and recent discovery by the Tk’emlúps te Secwépemc First Nation. We are so fortunate to have amazing Indigenous partners in SD62 and have connected with Elders to seek guidance about how we may proceed as a community and mourn alongside one another.

Reminders:

Please remember to do the Daily Health Check with your child and keep them home if your child is sick.  This is still so important and we all really appreciate your support in keeping everyone healthy. Please remember to send your child with extra snacks as we are finding that the children are extra hungry these days.  They must be growing!!  Our snack basket at the office needs to be filled 3 or 4 times during the day.

Please also remember to wear a mask at all times when you are on the playground with your child.  Please remind care givers who are dropping off and picking up your child as well.   And please also stay safely on the non-paved areas away from the staff when they are picking up their classes.   We all really appreciate your cooperation.

 

If your child is going to be away from school, it is important to email your child’s teacher to let them know directly.
Spare clothes at school is always a good idea.  Please put some in your child’s backpack to keep at school.
