Parent Update- April 2018


April 3rd, 2018


***Please note that the monthly calendar is posted under the NEWSLETTER section of this website. Also, he calendar displayed at the bottom, right of the homepage is update regularly. 


Dear parents,


I hope that you and your families have enjoyed Spring Break, although I almost hesitate to call it  a “Spring” Break in light of recent weather.

April will be a bit of a slower month for us at Botha School. Looking back at how busy we have been with events/trips and then report cards and teacher interviews, not to mention fewer school days in March, April will help us set our feet again to have a strong finish to this school year.  As the weather gets nice, we will be sure to start venturing outside to explore wetlands, trees, ecosystems and more.


Just before break, we had parent/teacher interviews and I would like to thank all parents. For those parents who attended interviews, we appreciate your time and the conversations. For those parents where interviews weren’t requested, we appreciate your understanding.  As always, if there are ever any questions regarding student learning, please don’t hesitate to contact us.

I’d also like to thank all of those who worked on behalf our our school, through the Botha School Society to organize the Jimmy the Janitor Fundraiser.  It took a lot of work for this to come together, but in the end it was great event for the community, and funds raised by the Botha School Society support students through field trips and offsetting costs.


While April may be a bit of a “breather” we are working on scheduling our end of year field trip, as well as swim lessons and Grade 6 camp. We look forward to being able to update you on those plans soon.


All the best in April,


Mike Flieger for the staff of Botha School
