Happy Soggy Weekend Parents,
Great weekend to dig into a novel with your family! Reading aloud has often been cited as one of the favourite memories of adults – including reading as teens! If you haven’t tried it yet, I highly recommend it. There are so many great novels out there for every age level, and this half hour group activity is one of the highlights of our school days.
Langley – Tuesday January 27
Heritage House – Wednesday January 28
Students should wear Earthwear and their best smiles!
Thanks to all who participated in our “day in the life of your child” on Tuesday night. We never get together without learning something about your children, and your responses tell us you learned from this experience too.
Our MMUN delegates are working hard on their presentations for New York – and for you!
Have you decided on your silent auction contribution yet? Just let Gayle know (604-510-2588) or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
- Dinner and Performance
- 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
5:30 Gala room doors open
6:00 Dinner with live music
Professional and student performers, including MMUN alumni!
Irish and African dance and drumming
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.
