Campbell River elementary school staff spread messages of kindness to students, families

Staff wrote heart messages, organized Easter parade as in-class instruction remains suspended in B.C.

It’s been almost one month since Campbell River teachers and their students have seen each other face-to-face.

Students began their spring break on March 16 and while they were off, the province suspended in-class instruction indefinitely.

The change in routine has young learners missing their teachers, and vice-versa.

Messages of kindness have appeared outside of schools, like Pinecrest Elementary, where staff lined a fence with hearts.

“We love and miss our Pinecrest families and students, xox,” reads one of the hearts.

“Pinecrest families, we all miss you so very much. We miss your smiles and the happiness you share with us everyday,” says another. “Look after yourselves and we look forward to the time we can all be back together.”

There’s a heart with a Dr. Seuss quote, and more with teacher messages to students.

Staff at Georgia Park Elementary took things a step further, bringing Easter cheer directly to neighbourhood students.

A handful of staff put on their bunny ears and hopped into their decorated vehicles for a parade around the neighbourhood on April 9 before the holiday long weekend.
