Home / School News / Principal’s Notice to Parents – February 5, 2018


Good morning Spencer Families,

Welcome to February! This week is shaping up to be a busy one!

Some of you may have noticed our electronic sign is not working at the moment; it will be up and running soon.  Some electrical work is being done so it has been temporarily turned off.  I apologize for the inconvenience, but hopefully these weekly emails and our website will suffice for now.

As we start to look towards next year and the transitions that are happening for our Grade 8 students to high school next year it would be helpful to hear from families if they do have plans to be at a different school next year.  If this is the case for you and you know your family is moving can you please contact the school office so we can make note of any upcoming changes.

Our grade eight students will be going to Belmont for a fine arts performance this week on Thursday.  They will be picked up by school bus at 10:30 and will return to Spencer by 12:10.  We are looking forward to watching the Belmont students perform!

The Youth in Action Club is holding a 24-hour famine this week and are collecting pledges.  All funds will be donated to the Goldstream Food bank so if you wish to donate, please drop off a cash or cheque (payable to Goldstream Food Bank) this week in the office.
