Dear parents & students,

As of today, this blog site will no longer be updated.

All future 4S announcements will happen in Microsoft Teams beginning Monday, April 6.  This is our way of simplifying things so you don’t need to check in two places for information.

Off-site learning is a new experience for us all. Please know that you and your family are at the forefront of our thinking as we move forward. I warmly invite you to email me with questions, comments, or concerns at any time. Please contact me at csemke@myrcs.ca. I will respond as soon as possible. If a longer conversation is needed, we will make sure to set up a time for a phone call or Zoom chat during my office house (Tuesday & Thursday, 2 – 3 pm).

Thank you for being so gracious, patient, and flexible as we begin our new Off-Site Learning adventure.

See you on Teams and Zoom!

Blessings,

The 4S Team  (Miss Semke, Mrs. Kinniston, Mrs. Chan)

RCS Off-Site Learning Starts Soon!

Trust in the Lord | TAPESTRY

Hi everyone!

Looking forward to connecting with all of you by Zoom this week. I will be sending an email to all our 4S families later today with instructions and invitations.

We will retire the Semkeville blog site this week. Ongoing communication will happen by Email, MS Teams, & Zoom. Instructions for parents & students will be coming this week.

Don’t worry :)…we will figure this out together!

In Christ,

Miss Semke

Dear 4S Students & Families,

I hope that you are all in good health and enjoying Spring Break!

My family and I are well.  We are self-isolating, practicing social distancing, and washing our hands a lot!  I keep busy by doing projects around the house and reading a kazillion books.

Please know that I miss you and am praying for you.  After Spring Break, we will keep in touch by online learning…that will be a cool new adventure!  In the meantime, I will update you through our 4S Blog.

May the peace & love of Christ be with you all,

Miss Semke

Thank You, Sheriff!

Today, 4S students had the privilege to meet and learn from BC Sheriff Marcinowsky, a 26 year veteran in British Columbia law enforcement.

We learned:

  • the importance of treating everyone as kindly, politely & respectfully as possible
  • to “use our words” to peacefully solve problems
  • how important it is to develop self-control (one of the “fruits of the Spirit”)

A big thank you to Sheriff Marcinowsky and all the law enforcement officers who work hard to serve & protect our communities with honour, integrity, & commitment.

Dear Parents,

SNOW! SNOW! SNOW! Brrrrr!

The students had so much fun in the snow last week.  Most children were well prepared with boots, snowpants, sweaters, water-resistant jackets, hoods & hats, scarves & gloves.

Thank you for protecting the children with warm, weatherproof clothing so they can enjoy their outdoor breaks on windy, frigid days!

Gratefully,

Frosty the Snow Teacher

Dear Parents,

The first week back to school, 4S students were introduced to our Robot Homework Helper project.

Each child was asked to:

  • explain the project to you
  • ask you to read & sign the “Robot Project Letter”
  • draw design ideas for their robot + collect parts/supplies

Three “Art Afternoons” have been planned at school.

Students need to bring their robot pieces/supplies/tools on these 3 days:

  • Friday, January 24
  • Friday, February 7
  • Friday, February 14

The final product is due on THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 20.

Note:  A parent permission note is required for students to use hot glue guns & box cutters at school.

LET THE INVENTIONS BEGIN!
