Pink Shirt Day at Tyee

Principal's Message

Dear Parents,

February has been a month filled with physical exercise. All students are skating at Trout Lake Community Centre, and Divisions 4 & 7 are learning yoga. The Sr. girls and boys basketball teams have been providing solid competition for their opponents at various schools. Congratulations to the teams for working hard and winning games! We are very proud of the efforts of everyone. Intermediate students will be snowshoeing in March to end the term. More physical activities are planned for term three.

For six weeks there is a community-building program for grade 4 students only. These students are working on making connections with their peers and discovering what they have in common. Activities include introduction games, teamwork challenges, and cooperative experiences. New friendships may form and all will get to know each other!

Pink Shirt Day will be recognized throughout Canada on February 26th. The idea of wearing a pink shirt to school comes from two 17 year old Nova Scotia students who stood up and protested the bullying and harassment of a grade 9 male student who wore a pink shirt to school. David Shepard and Travis Price arrived at school and distributed pink shirts to all of the boys in their school who were taking a strong stand against harassment and bullying. We encourage all Tyee students to wear pink on February 26th to symbolize that as a society we will not accept bullying or harassment of anyone, at anytime, on any day. We ask all students and adults to apply the message of these two Nova Scotia students on a daily basis and act with respect and acceptance of all. For more information see www.pinkshirtday.ca.

Each year parents and students have an opportunity to express how they think and feel about what is happening at school. Satisfaction Surveys are for grade 4 students and will be completed on-line at school. Each grade 4 student will access the survey with their personal random number to answer the questions. Each grade 4 parent will also receive their own number to respond to parent questions. We encourage parents to provide their opinions.

Once again, in the spirit of true community giving, Tyee is collecting food for those in need of the Food Bank assistance. Boxes will be set up in the front hall next week for you to drop off non-perishable items. Thank you once again for Tyee generosity as we reach out to the community.

I hope everyone is enjoying the Olympic Games and cheering on our amazing Canadian athletes. The message I hear over and over again is practice, practice, practice!

Please see the important parent messages at this weeks newsletter under “Parent Events”.


Gail Marlow, Principal
