Week at a Glance

Hello Storrington Stingers,


We hope that all of our Stingers had a great weekend and are well and healthy.  

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

National Indigenous Peoples Day

Wednesday, June 21st is National Indigenous Peoples Day.  It is a day dedicated to commemorating and celebrating Indigenous cultures, traditions and customs. We will recognize the importance of this day through classroom activities and school announcements.


Show Your True Colours Day

In recognizing Pride month, we want our Stingers to be their authentic selves and celebrate their True Colours.  On Thursday, June 22, our Stingers are encouraged to show their authentic selves and dress in their favourite colour or colours for True Colours Day.  Together, we can work towards an inclusive and positive school environment!  


BEE Yourself Rock Garden

On Thursday, June 22, every student will be given a rock to paint, which will be placed in our BEE Yourself Rock Garden.  Students will be asked to paint a picture that best represents their authentic selves.  Since we will be using acrylic paint, we encourage our Stingers to bring an extra shirt that can be worn during the painting.    


School Based Vision Screening

For the current 2022/2023 academic school year, KFL&A Public Health made the difficult decision to pause the school-based vision screening program.  This pause will continue for the upcoming 2023/2024 academic year.

KFL&A Public Health recognizes the importance early detection of vision problems has on children’s overall health and learning.  They have updated their website with information for parents and caregivers about vision for school-aged children.  For more information:  School aged children - KFL&A Public Health (kflaph.ca)
