March 14 Parent Education Night


Carlin and the PAC co-hosted parents and guardians for an educational night. Five teachers and Ms. Langston and Mr. Corston were joined by eighteen parents/guardians to learn together. We began the conversation to help parents learn ways to support an anxious child, and to regain calmness. The ‘GO ZEN’ program was presented for how it is used at school and as a resource for parents.   Another parent site was shared. Next, three math teachers, representing grades 4-8, then joined together to present strategies and give reasons why they are used in today’s math classes. There was a wonderful feel to the night and something we all look forward to happening again. Thanks to all who organized, presented and attended.

Week of February 26th

Carlin Kindess Club and the Silverbacks

On Tuesday Feb. 27 The Carlin Kindness Club (Students in Ms. Colonna’s, and Ms. Hall’s/Ms Langston’s class) held a cupcake sale with all proceeds to be donated to the Shuswap SPCA.  We used money from our the District Me to We grant to purchase supplies to make cupcakes and student families also donated cupcakes. Thanks to the generosity of our school community and some hungry Silverbacks, we raised $280 for the SPCA. A big thank you to the Carlin Kindess Club and to all who contributed to this successful event.

This is an example of the Renewed Curricululum Core Competency Learning

Panago and the Salmon Arm Silverbacks

Thank you very much to the Salmon Arm Silverbacks for coming and reading with Ms. Bowlby’s class on Tuesday, February 27 and then playing a game of hockey against the class; we won’t share who won. Connected with this visit Panago Pizza supplied lunch for Ms. Bowlby’s class and if you can believe this, the entire school. 

A huge thanks to our two community partners and Ms. Bowlby for helping to make this happen.
