Welcome to the first blog of 2015! There’s plenty going on, so I’ll try to be concise.
First of all, a very warm welcome to all our new children; it’s wonderful to see the Roots and Wings village growing!
And a huge group hug to Aaron Cunningham, the new Director of our Primary Class at Surrey Centre. We’re thrilled with all the good he has already brought to bless our community – and we can’t wait to hear him singing with his guitar with the children. 🙂
A reminder to parents of children in the primary, elementary or secondary programs. Even though our program is individualized, it’s very important to the children’s comfort and focus that all students arrive on time. Late arrivals are disruptive and unsettling, particularly for the late-comers, and at some levels result in your child missing shared information. It’s all valuable and important – don’t miss a minute! Thank you for your cooperation.
The Intermediates have extended their bottle drive for one more week (We get that you keep forgetting that bag in the garage!) Please bring bottles to Langley, or to Sullivan or the Heritage Home where they’ll be put on the bus, or to Surrey Centre, where they’ll be picked up on Wednesday evening.
All proceeds go directly to the classrooms of contributors! Thank you everyone.

Building a Greenhouse
We’re planning to build a greenhouse – in fact ideally, we would like to build one at each of our centres. If anyone has any materials or expertise, we’re always happy to receive them, thank you!
a last request:
We’re looking for a stage or possibly a venue for our major musical performance on May 15. If anyone has any connections you think may be helpful, we’re all ears.
Thank you one more time! Have a wonderful weekend.
