Important information for Langley Parents:
Skating starts this Friday!
Langley students (full day) will skate for the next six weeks, sometimes Thursdays, sometimes Fridays, from 1:15 – 2:15, as follows:
Friday, Jan 23 Thursday, Jan 29 Thursday, Feb 5 Friday, Feb 13 Thursday, Feb 19 Friday, Feb 27
As last year, the rink is the
George Preston Recreation Centre
20669 42nd Avenue (about 10 mins from the school)
Skates $3 (should know your shoe size)
Helmets (mandatory – not bike helmets) $1
We would appreciate some help with tying skates and/or skating with the children, as well as transportation for those who won’t fit in the bus.
We will also need to work out transportation from the rink to the Heritage House, to Willowbrook or back to the school so it would be helpful to know as soon as possible if you intend to take your child home directly from the rink.
Adults only, childcare available (let us know in advance)
Come and be your child for a day, experience a day in the life of school at Roots & Wings.
Mark your calendars:
Our very popular evening of
- Dinner and Performance
- silent auction
- sneak preview of MMUN speeches by this year’s six delegates
Don’t miss this great opportunity to connect with the rest of the Roots and Wings Village, for fun, entertainment and support for our hard-working delegates.
As last year, prior to the Gala, the elementary students will be holding their
25th Annual Entrepreneur Show
Each student is creating a product for sale, completing a business plan and marketing.
With their profits, they’ll learn the skills of spending, saving and giving.
4:45–5:30 Entrepreneur show
Doors open 5:30 Silent auction
6:00 Dinner with live music
Professional and student performers
Irish and African dance and drumming
Advance Tickets: $25 per adult, $50 per family, $10 per child
At the door: $30 per adult, $60 per family, $10 per child
We are requesting that every family come up with at least one item for the silent auction. Be creative:
- Gift basket
- Service or product from a family business
- Afternoon tea at your home
- Afternoon on your boat
- Donation from a local business
- Product of your creation
- Gift cards
All items can be brought to the Langley office, or delivered to any of our other locations
Thank you so much for this valuable support for our delegates to the United Nations.
