More Hiring Announcements

Thanks be to God for continuing to provide for all of our staffing needs!

We are excited to announce the hiring of Andrea Orantes Duran as Assistant Principal for the 2019/20 School Year! Andrea is a graduate of Nanaimo Christian School and Vancouver Island University. Following her practicum, she spent five years in a BC Offshore School in Columbia where she taught in both elementary and high school classrooms. Most recently, she has served as Principal for the BC Graduation program at this school. Following her wedding in July, she and her husband Jose Daniel Posada will be moving to Prince George to start new adventures of life and work. We are pleased to have Andrea join our leadership team, and look forward to introducing her to our community in September!

We would also like to announce that Mrs. Jamie Erbacher has accepted our offer to teach Primary PE next year in addition to her Teacher-Librarian role. A big thank you to Lorne Braam, who has done an awesome job filling this role over the past year on a Letter of Permission from the Ministry of Education!

High School Service Day Project Needs Your Help

On Wednesday, February 27th, for our quarterly HS Service Day, a group of students will assemble and donate Cat Shelters to the SPCA. We’ll need the following materials:

  • 10 x 18-gallon Roughneck Rubbermaid totes
  • 10 Styrofoam coolers to fit inside the totes
  • 2 x rolls of duct tape
  • Straw (which will be placed in each house to keep the cat warm)

If you are interested in helping out with either donating the funds or purchasing the items, please contact Dave Rowland at dave.rowland@cedars.bc.ca

Jump Rope for Heart Day Update

Today the kids participated in Jump Rope for Heart. If you haven’t already brought in your fundraising envelope please do asap. If you fundraised online, you do not need to bring in an envelope. As of this morning, the online total was at $2725 which is 77% of our goal! Currently Mrs. Erbacher’s class is in the lead for the pizza lunch in the staff room. The rest of the donations will be counted on Friday, so all donations need to be in by then. Thank you for supporting this cause and being a community builder!

Elementary Choir Starting Next Week

Ms. van Dijk will be starting up an elementary choir on Thursday, February 21. Grades 4 – 7 are invited to join the choir, which will be held Tuesdays and Thursdays during lunch hours from 12:15pm – 12:45pm.

In this choir, students will learn how to:

  • sing harmonies
  • sing in different languages
  • have school performance opportunities

If you are interested, come to the music room next Thursday!

Building Update – Feb 6, 2019

This week’s updates from the Building Committee and Leadership Team:

  • This was a big week for the building committee! James and Paul met with a potential contractor and engineering firm in Vancouver. We have been in discussion with these firms for many months, so this face to face was the next step.
  • They brought back a motion to engage Krahn for all engineering disciplines and have the president of JCI act as owner’s rep through the engineering phase. On Monday night, the Board passed this motion unanimously. Both these firms have been very generous with their time and expertise leading up to this, with no guarantee of anything, so they come to this position with a great spirit.
  • As hoped and discussed at the last town hall, the engineers within our society will be welcomed as eyes on the ground to help Krahn as editors and advisors.
  • On the local front, the permitting work is moving forward, with L&M assisting on the civil and EDI on the riparian.
  • Note: Our next town hall meeting will take place on Feb 25th at 7pm. More details about the agenda for this meeting will be coming next week.

Thanks for all the prayers and support! If you have any questions, please contact Kenton Friesen at kenton.friesen@gmail.com .
