Maturation Materials

Parents,

Due to recent changes in legislation and policy, Quest has opted to provide parents an opportunity to access maturation resources electronically. Feel free to take some time to watch the below video with your son or daughter and respond to any questions they may have. These videos are the same as those which have been used in past years. Please note that the first link will direct you to the boys maturation video and the second link to the girls video. We hope that providing these materials electronically will allow you to access them at your convenience and support positive communications about maturation between you and your child.

Wow! As I am writing this blog post, I cannot believe how quickly the school year has gone this year. Mrs. Anderson has announced that the last week for library will be the week of May 6th through May 10th. All library books need to be returned by Friday, May 10th.

This has been a fabulous year, and I hope that everyone has found some new books and genres that they find interesting to read.

Optional Dollar Dress Down Day!!

download (1)

We are so excited to announce that this Friday we will be having an optional dress down day.

This is a very special dress down day for Mrs. McBride. The money from this dress down will go directly to a project that Mrs. McBride and her son are working on. In July, they will be going to Fiji on a service trip to help families in the village of Narikoso. This village was directly hit by Cyclone Winston and is still recovering over two years later.

They will be helping in rebuilding structures as well as helping the villagers with business development, personal hygiene, sustainability, and English lessons. If you would like to donate money you can bring money for the dress down day this Friday. Thank you so much for your help and support for this exciting project.

Click on the following link to view the Sub Zero Menu.  We cannot guarantee that all ingredients will be brought to the school.  Each student who would like ice cream will need to pay $3.00 to the front office, prior to this activity. All students will be able to experience the presentation, but we will only allow students who have payed to eat the ice cream.
