Our principal is leaving our school and we would like to thank him for how much he has done for us and how he has inspired us to be great kids. Our principal helped support foundations such as Right to Play and Miracle on Main street, which helped us remember and think about the needs of others. He taught us about the Turbo button and to keep persevering even if things get difficult. He always used inspiring words when he spoke to us such as believe, inspire, and equity. He always talked to everyone kindly, and if they needed to do a better job with something he encouraged them and told them he believed in them. I feel sad that he is leaving our school, but am happy for him as he starts a new role in his life. I will always remember him and how he inspired me to try to always be a great kid.

Thank-you for dreaming of making this wonderful school.

Turbo means never give up. Never feel like something is too hard for you. Just work on it. I learned about my Turbo Button at my school. When I push my Turbo button it makes me do even better. Last week I did a presentation in French in front of my class. I spoke in a loud and clear voice so everyone could hear me. Even though I felt a little shy, I didn't give up. I challenged myself because I didn't use my paper - I memorized it so well. At the end of my presentation I felt super happy because I knew that I pushed my Turbo button to do my best and my teacher said I was 'super!' Doing this presentation was so fun, I loved it! So always push your Turbo Button because it feels good to do your best. Never give up.

I love karate! It give me something to reach because the kohai always says the black belt is on the roof. I am a girl. When you take karate you can get different colours of belts until black belt. More girls need to be in the class because then it gives girls power and you feel strong. It makes me feel good and bieng a karate fighting girl is good feeling.
My brother gave his lego star wars set to the toy drive at school today. He loves star wars and lego! But, he still gave it away so other kids can have nice toy for christmas too.
