QQS Updates Feb 2018
Dear Snuneymuxw Mustimuxw, Parents, Guardians, Friends & Family,
It has been a very productive month! We have been working hard here at QQS to improve all of our students’ achievements! We have noticed in our DIBELS data that most of our students are growing and improving! One thing that could help us improve our scores of course is the student attendance. For students who are not here at QQS regularly, we notice that their scores are not as high as they could be! We would love to see our attendance improve and we would then see our data go up too!
February has been a busy month here at QQS! We have done the following:
Feb. 1st and 2nd – We have Benchmarked and done our DIBELS monitoring
Feb. 7th – We went tubing at Mt. Washington
Feb. 12th – BC Family Day!

In April all of our students will be starting to do swimming lessons. So parents please get your child ready for this by making sure that they have the proper swimwear for their lessons. (bathing suit, swimming shorts) More information, permission slips, swimming lesson schedule will be sent home with your child.
We are continuously working on our programs here at QQS! We want to ensure that each child is receiving the best education possible. We have set the bar high for each student and staff member. We are constantly working hard to achieve our goals on a daily basis! So parents keep on sending your child in daily! Encourage them to do their best! We only believe in success! We will succeed!
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to call me or come to see me in my office at the school.
Yours in Education,
