for May 11, 2017


I cannot believe that I am writing the MAY newsletter! This is such an exciting time of year at Princess Elizabeth school. Our students are involved in some wonderful opportunities– both in, and out of the classroom! With the nice warm weather, many of our teachers are bringing the learning outside, looking for opportunities to see, touch and feel the learning. We also have a bunch of extra-curricular activities running during recess, before and after school. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, we are very fortunate to have the teaching staff that we do. This is largely due to the fact that many of our staff volunteer to lead and coach multiple sports, clubs and activities.
I also want to take a second to thank all those volunteers who take time out of their day to support all of our students. From those on school council, to those who volunteer for school lunches, to the many parents and community members who come to PE to read and work with students- all of us benefit from their support. There is still a great need for parent volunteers here- if you think that you can support the school with your time, please contact us at the office.
We have a big month coming up, with Tract and Field, Yearbook, EQAO, just to name a few! Thank you all for your support in making this the greatest school in town!

Make Change for Children- Mini-stick Hockey Tournament:
The Education Foundation of Niagara is an organization that provides financial support for many of our students here at PE. They helped us pay for school trips, educational resources as well as school presentations and plays. In return, schools often support them through fundraiser's. This month, with the help of our students council, we will be hosting a 'mini-sticks' competition during recess breaks. Students from grades 1-8 will have the chance to form their own teams of 3 or 4, bring their own mini sticks in and square off against other teams in the hopes of being crowned the mini -stick championship! The tournament will take place at recesses from May 15th-18th, 2017. Thank you to our student's council for their leadership and support!

Book Fair
We want to thank all the students and parents that supported our school bookfair this month. Thanks to your support, and the support of our many volunteers, we've raised almost $2,000 for our school library. Your support helps to ensure that our library has all the books that keep students engaged and excited about reading. Well done PE!
