Reminders and Updates

Snow has arrived!  For some of us the white stuff was exciting…for the rest of us it was frightening!!  Please remember to send your children with appropriate clothing to be outdoors and make sure your items are labelled!  Our lost and found is growing rapidly.

Tomorrow is a PA Day and there is NO SCHOOL for your children.  Staff will be engaged in reviewing and renewing our school plan for continuous improvement and student achievement.  This plan will be shared at our next council meeting on November 21st.

Monday is Halloween – your children may choose to celebrate in their costumes, but masks and replica weapons are not permitted.  Please do not send food or snacks to share as there are too many allergies and we are working hard to be a healthy school!  In addition, when you send Halloween treats in lunches next week (and the weeks that follow) please ensure there are none with nut products!  Be visable and SAFE when out trick or treating and check your child’s treats carefully when you get home.

Next Thursday is our first FAMILY MOVIE night.  Please see Cash Online if you are pre-ordering pizza for dinner.  Zootopia and Goosebumps will be playing.  All students must be accompanied by an adult for the duration of the evening – it is not a drop off event.

Yesterday was our first recognition assembly for Character Matters  and our Touchstone. It was a wonderful opportunity to come together to celebrate and to kick off our monthly focus on Courage.  Our Touchstone says ‘We take risks and can unlock the future!’  Talk to your kids about ways that they demonstrate courage at home and at school and share ways that you demonstrate courage.

Please consider our Playground Donation Drive, it will be closing on Monday night at midnight.

Have a wonderful weekend!
