Ross Road SPELLATHON 2013

spellathon_heartsIt’s SPELLATHON time! Please check your kids’ backpacks for a letter, pledge sheet and word list about this event.

We hope you will enjoy the beautiful Valentine-themed words.  Please practice these words with your child and help them collect pledges for the event.

The funds raised by this year’s event will be directed to updating the library to help ensure its relevance within the new BC Education Plan (see  The new plan calls for going beyond the four walls of the school to the world; to that end, we would like to purchase a projector and computer to be permanently stationed in the library for the purposes of led and collaborative research and to replenish/supplement the books.
