Mother's Day Around the World
Belated wishes to many of the Mothers of our community and their celebrations last Sunday in honour of your special day. We recognize the importance of celebrating all that you do for your children. In that regard, I hope that the children of ASW took this opportunity to cherish and care for you in essential ways with extra hugs and much lovingkindness to show their awe and appreciation for all that you do.
But, we should also be quick to mention that many countries celebrate Mothers on different dates. Poland officially celebrates Mother's Day on May 26. France follows shortly thereafter on May 29 along with the Dominican Republic and Sweden. Spain, Portugal, Romania, Hungary, and Lithuania celebrated on May 1st. Other dates in various countries include February 13, November 27, August 12, October 16, and June 12 in 2022. In our diverse community, it means we are celebrating Mother's Day throughout the year, as it should be! ;-)
Wishing you all the best and thank you for all that you do!!
Hoping you have had a chance to check out our website and consider joining us for an elegant evening here at ASW in support of our programs at our inaugural event. We are moving quickly towards our date, so please consider joining us by purchasing tickets either as an individual or as a group or corporate sponsor. Our partnerships are very important to us, and would be so happy to have you with us at this important event!
We had a wonderful PYPx for our Grade 5 students last week. Each year this constitutes a significant capstone of the elementary experience where years of learned skills are brought together into a multi-disciplinary project. We should applaud the talented and capable staff of the elementary school and all the volunteer adult mentors and experts who helped to make this a robust and rewarding experience for our students. The projects were a dazzling array of ideas and actions that will have a profound impact on our school and community, demonstrating a key part of our mission - changing the world for the better. See below for more information in the elementary section of this eNotes.
