Week at a Glance

Hello Storrington Stingers,


We hope that all of our Stingers had a great Easter holiday and enjoyed the long weekend.   

 

Please see the information below in this week’s Week at a Glance.  

 

Storrington Clubs

Storrington P.S. has begun to offer clubs and activities again. Below is a list and description of some of the clubs that we are currently providing:

 

Running Club

Mrs. Freeland, Mme Dannenberg, Mrs. Kuhnke and Mrs. Saha has begun Running Club for students in Grades 3-8. They have been out running for the last couple of weeks and are working towards competing at the Bayridge and LCVI Road Races which take place at the end of April and early May.

 

Eco/Gardening Club

Mrs. Gifford, Mme Dannenberg and Mr. Pattison will be starting up Storrington Eco and Gardening club in the next couple of weeks for students in Grades 1-8. They will be working on beautifying the school garden and hopefully creating a new one. There will be opportunities for students in the primary grades as well as the community to participate. 

 

Art Club

Ms. Saha is providing an opportunity for students in Grades 3-6 to practice their creativity through drawing and colouring.  Students can follow a provided template or they can free-draw.

 

Skipping Club

Ms. Gifford is offering Skipping Club, for any students in Grades 2-8, who want to learn basic jump rope skills in single, long rope, and double dutch ropes.  They will also be working on some tricks and playground games. This is a great introduction for anyone who is interested in joining the Jump Rope team next year.  

 

Earth Day 

Earth Day is on Friday, April 22.  This is a day dedicated to bringing awareness to climate change and environmental disasters.  It is also a day to recognize our role in ensuring we are doing our part to reduce our ecological footprint and working towards a greener Earth. During the day, classes will be participating in activities to pick up litter from our school yard and to beautify our gardens.  We also encourage all our Stingers to wear green as we work towards a greener planet.

 

Storrington Forest of Reading

Our Storrington Stingers have been reading many amazing Canadian books written by nominated authors in 4 different categories.  On Thursday, April 28, our Stingers will participate in our Forest of Reading Voting Day.  Students will have the opportunity to vote for their favourite book and contribute towards selecting the Forest of Reading Award winners for this year.  As well, the classes that read the most amount of books will have the opportunity to win a pizza party.  

 

Water Bottles

With the warmer weather and lots of outdoor play, our Stingers are encouraged to ensure that they have their own water bottles.  Our water fountains are still closed but bottle filling stations are available.

Covid 19 Health Protocols

The provincial screening tool has been further amended to align with federal requirements, and to take into account different vaccination circumstances.  The screening tool will advise on any isolation requirements for your particular situation.

-If a household member has tested positive and your child is not fully vaccinated (2 doses) they must also self-isolate.

-If a household member has tested positive and your child is fully vaccinated and has no symptoms, they must wear a mask for 10 days.

-Upon return of a positive test and after 5 days of isolation, students and staff must wear a mask in all public settings for Day 6 to 10.

-If you have returned from international travel in the last 14 days, you must wear a mask for 14 days in all public settings.
