PINK SHIRT DAY

Wednesday February 26 is international Pink Shirt Day.

Thursday, February 27 we will be having a kindness assembly for all of our grade K-2 students.  Travis Price, co-founder of Pink Shirt Day, will be speaking to our grade 3-8 students in the afternoon on Feb 27.  Travis Price and a friend stood up for a fellow student who was being bullied for wearing a pink shirt at school in 2007.  This created the start of a bullying prevention movement that is now recognized globally as Pink Shirt Day.  Travis will share his story about how bullying affected him and how we all have the power to make a difference.

We encourage all of our John Stubbs students to wear pink on both Wednesday for Pink Shirt Day and Thursday for our kindness assemblies.

LITERACY WEEK

Literacy week is well underway at John Stubbs. Kick off assemblies took place yesterday, Read-a-Thon pledge forms and reading logs have been sent home and book donations continue to arrive (thank you!) All students have the opportunity to choose a gently used book to keep from the donations received.

This Thursday, the Victoria Grizzlies hockey team will be at the school reading with some of the elementary classes. All students are encouraged to wear hockey jerseys if they wish. Grizzlies players will be available for autograph signing, and to play floor hockey with middle school students at lunch recess. This Saturday, the Grizzlies are having a special night to celebrate military members and their families. Game time is 7:00 pm – everyone is welcome.  Please visit https://www.victoriagrizzlies.com/ for game schedule and other information.

Friday is “dress as your favourite book character” day. It is also milk and cookie day; PAC is supplying milk and we ask that each student bring a cup or mug and a couple of cookies.

There are several community events taking place throughout the city. Please visit https://southislandliteracy.com/ to find out more.

A final reminder to visit the Greater Victoria Public Library website www.gvpl.ca There are always lots of programs and events taking place. We encourage students to search the public library for books that we may not have at our library and to place holds for added convenience.

Thank you and happy reading!
