Nov 20 Assembly

We managed to do our first “regular” assembly today, by video.  Hope you enjoy!

(You’ll need your child’s Office 365 account to access the video from Stream)

Spirit Squad Fundraiser

Spirit Squad Fundraiser

Spirit Squad will be accepting pre-orders for our fabulous centrepieces this year. They will again be $20.00 each, and you can choose your colour (within reason) when you order. The kids love making these, and we use the money for things like Pizza party prizes, supplies for our fun days, and decorations. Since Spirit Squad is limited to one cohort this term, we will limit the number of centerpieces we make to 12. First come, first serve! They will look similar to the picture, but likely, with a little more ‘flavour’! They will be available for pick-up from outside the school by December 11th  If you are interested, please order by December 1st

BVE Remembrance Day Video

Today each class marked Remembrance Day by sharing this recorded ceremony, featuring Mrs. Lavelle’s Grade 7 class, Ms. Langille’s Grade 2 class, and the BVE choir.  Students can show you the video using their Office 365 login (the same login they use for Teams).

We hope you enjoy!

Remembrance Day at BVE

The Canadian Legion’s poppy campaign begins now, and Remembrance Day is coming up on November 11th.  Mrs. Lavelle’s class is putting together a video for the whole school to watch in our classrooms on November 10th.  We can’t do large assemblies, so this is our COVID work-around 🙂  Here is a video from the Legion about how funds raised from the Poppy Campaign support the work of the Legion:
