OUR SWING TO SOUTH HILL

Hurray for community! Everyone handled the recent upheaval with positivity, resilience and a cooperative spirit. If you still have questions or missed something, we have created a summary page with all the information related to the move (hot lunch, bus service, after school programs, when we expect to be back, etc).
 

OUR VALUES IN ACTION

A sample of 24 parents/guardians identified the following values as what we want our parent community to be: Transparency, Making a DifferenceCooperation and Inclusion. What do these values look like in terms of specific behaviours? Tell us what you think at vanhornepac.com/values-survey or read about the values exercise at vanhornpac.com/ourvalues .

CULTURAL FOOD FAIR

Wednesday, May 1st 6pm-9pm
Come join your community as we celebrate the strength that is our diversity! Bring a dish from your heritage to our May 1st Cultural Food Fair (people who register and bring food get free entry). Sign up your dish here and please pass on this message to those who may require translation.
