Because.... Queen. And Friday. Enjoy!
We had tentatively scheduled this Friday, Nov. 13, as a Fresh Air Friday and the weather has mostly cooperated so we will spend the afternoon at the river. Right now its hard to predict if it will be ice, snow, slush, mud, sand or a combination thereof and we tend to play hard, as evidenced by the state we came home in last time, so please dress your child appropriately. We can't wait!
As so many of us will not have the opportunity to gather together for moments of remembrance this November 11, Western Canada Theatre is proud to bring songs, poems, and letters of remembrance into your homes, to complement the streamed service from the Kamloops Cenotaph. An outstanding company of Kamloops performers pays respect to all those who have lost their lives or been affected by war and conflict, including those from Kamloops and from across Canada.

Having a day at home next Wednesday will be lovely but I find Nov. 11 often produces some sober musings, and well it should. I will spend most of the day doing the usual must-be-done things but I will also take a few moments to remember why I am home and not at work. Our Remembrance Day assembly this year will be a prerecorded video we will watch together in our classrooms on Tuesday. As it is a very somber occasion, which I'm sure will be felt even with the unusual delivery, I anticipate some of the children feeling sad. Truth to tell, I always feel emotional at the Remembrance assembly too. So while I am thankful to have a day at home next week, it seems ungracious to revel in it as the cost for it was so high.
