Wow! The month of October flew by. It was a busy and eventful month.

We are fortunate to have members from the Coyote’s hockey team volunteer to read with our primary students every second Tuesday. Students enjoy reading with the two Coyote volunteers. At recess the older students like playing floor hockey in the gym with the Coyotes.

The Okanagan Language and Cultural team will be working with the senior students setting up the outdoor day camp: setting up a teepee, building drying racks and tanning racks. All students will participate in tea picking for the Four Food Chief Ceremony at the end of the month. The grade 5-7 classes will be picking tuk’ten to make mats for day camp. Grade 3-7 students have been making spic’n to tie tuk’ten together to make mats. Finally, the grade 7 students will also be peeling logs for the racks that need to be built.    

In November Senpaq’cin School will be doing the following events:

  • November 7th Remembrance Day Ceremony with the Oliver Legion starts at 9 am in the gym and the Awards Assembly will follow
  • November 12 from 1-1:30 pm a Volleyball Game, Staff verses Senior students in the gym
