We want to welcome back all Arbutus families as well as our new students and families who will be joining us in September. We hope everyone has had a wonderful time this summer relaxing and enjoying the holidays. We are excited to be continuing our focus on place-based education, where students will explore and get to know many of the local neighbourhood amenities and resources that the Arbutus community has to offer. We will also be furthering our efforts to have a strong program to enhance social-emotional learning that supports students’ personal and social development. On Team Avalanche we promote a culture of caring and kindness, where students are challenged, well-connected to adults in the school, and encouraged to follow their passions. Here’s to a great year ahead!
