October Date & Time: Thursday October 28th, 12:00 pm – 1:30 pm

Register: http://www.familysmart.ca/events

Watch Now: https://youtu.be/paAcC1wWI_s

Details: When our kids are having a hard time, or we are seeing something for the first time, we might wonder what’s going on? In this video conversation, a parent and counsellor talk about the developmental stages of children, what are typical behaviour’s, and how do we know when something more might be going on. This conversation is for all families and caregivers who feel like they are parenting in the deep end of the swimming pool or are just wondering what they can do when it feels like more. Join us for a video followed by a group discussion.

 
 

Halloween Celebrations at Willway

We are celebrating Halloween at Willway on Friday, October 29th. Costumes are allowed and encouraged however no masks are to be worn on student faces as we are already wearing medical masks for health regulations.  We do not allow weapons (including fake ones) and ask for no more than three drops of blood for makeup.  If children would like to wear orange and black or not dress up at all, that is fine too.

We want Halloween to be a fun celebration for all students. Due to Covid 19, health and safety protocols are followed.  There will be no shared treats are allowed unless they are individually packaged from the store. Please check with your child’s teacher about in class Halloween celebrations.

 
 

Dear Parents, Students and families of Willway,

THANK YOU so much for coming out and supporting our first in-house book fair since the pandemic started.

Because of your help we sold over $3000 of books and resources which gave us back $1000 in scholastic rewards money. This rewards money will mostly be going towards S.T.E.M. kits and activities for the LLC as well as biographies and picture books that support writing.

Big shout out to Alysha Hoogestraat, Stef Szewczyk (my wonderful parent volunteers) and Miss Mayenburg (Mrs Andrew’s student teacher), for volunteering their time to assist me, I am ecstatic with the result and our wonderful students of Willway are going to LOVE these resources.

Thank you all again,

Mrs Sketchley

p.s. for all students who ordered items, we anticipate them being delivered on Wednesday when the Book Fair is collected. Thank you for your patience and understanding 🙂

This week we had a female bat on the side of the building for two days, she ended up inside the building and did a bit of a fly around. We had classes hold and secure which means students stay in their classroom and continue with learning with closed doors. This lasted until the bat was safely back outside. The Bat society tested the bat to make sure she was healthy and then took her to Goldstream. She gave birth to a baby pup this morning in a bat house. We are thrilled for both Mom and babe!
