Dear James Hill Families,
There have been many exciting events at James Hill Elementary over the past two weeks. We hosted another Drop Everything and Read morning, we had another grade 5 Honouring Assembly, and we had the privilege of using sport wheelchairs in the gym during PE classes. Our grade five basketball
l team is playing very well at their games! Keep up the great work! Special thanks to our PAC volunteers who also ran a successful popcorn day and hot-dog hot lunch! The kids really enjoyed it.
A particularly special event for our school was our Learning Circle Opening Ceremony, lead by our dear friend and teacher, Mr. Carman McKay. We are grateful for his gifts and teachings. You can see more about this significant ceremony here: https://twitter.com/LangleySchools/status/1225585467212652544
