We are off to a great start at Sands this year! The school year opened with a rush of energy and excitement. Students returned to school anxious to reconnect with peers and engage in learning. Our staff also returned with a similar energy, looking forward to meeting and working with new students.
Like the start to any school year, the beginning to this year has had a busy pace. Classes have been assembled and teachers and students are engaging in learning. Due to the delayed start to the school year however, we have made adjustments to the dates of some important events in our school calendar.
- November 4 – Interims posted on Student & Parent Connect
- November 12 (7:30am) - Grade 8 Breakfast (Parents are invited to attend)
- November 19 & 20 – Parent Teacher Interviews
Although I have had less than two months to immerse myself in the culture of the school, I am impressed by the warm, caring environment that characterizes the Sands community. There is an openness amongst staff and students, a sense of camaraderie and a true feeling of community that is immediately evident. The staff is committed to student growth and learning and together we will continue our journey to achieve the bold vision that we created for the district. I’m very excited to have joined such a community that values relationships and learning. Please view the video above to hear staff and student express their feelings about the Sands Community.
In addition to the learning occurring in classes, the school is a hub of vibrant extracurricular activities. Whether it is Athletics, the Fine & Performing Arts, Clubs or other celebrations, there is always something happening at Sands. I encourage you to connect with us on Twitter and Facebook to stay informed.
As always, we are here to support you so please do not hesitate to call on me or any of the staff if you have any questions.
Mr. A. Akune, Principal
