Dear Parents and Guardians,
It is hard to believe we are already into December! The past months have seen our students work extremely hard in their classes, in their extra-curricular opportunities and in our community. We are excited about the coming month and about the recent accomplishments of Howe Sound students. Here are some highlights:
Volleyball season wrapped up in the second week of November with our Junior Girls Team being crowned district champions once again. Congratulations to all players and coaches.
Our Sounders Football team finished their season on November 28th by playing in the Tier Two Provincial Final at BC Place vs Earl Marriot. While the boys were not successful in securing the championship, they played with intensity and represented our school with class. Congratulations to players and coaches on a great season and good luck to those players graduating and moving on to new Post-Secondary Football opportunities.
Our Winter Gala is coming up and our music students are very excited to showcase their talents to the greater community while raising money for a good cause. Tickets are $20 and are available in the front office. The event is scheduled for December 9, 2015 at 6:00pm. Please come join us in celebrating our music program!
Additionally, basketball season is now underway. Our Senior Girls, Senior Boys, and Junior Boys are practicing and preparing for weekly games and tournaments. Please visit the school website to see schedules for each team, and come out and support our Sounders at home or away games during the season.
Finally, as we move closer to Winter Break, I would like to take this opportunity to wish you and your family a restful holiday. Upon our return from the break, we will have three weeks left before Semester 1 final exams! Exams are scheduled for the last week of January. More information will be forth-coming regarding final exams in the New Year.
Please contact me at any time if you have any thoughts, questions or concerns regarding your child’s education. I can be reached by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at 604 892-5261 ext. 105.
