**Please fill out the online consents as soon as possible. There are still 65 families who have not filled these out. It is important as we need parents to ensure they are doing the “daily health checks” at home before sending their child to school. The consent should only take about two minutes. You do need your child’s PEN number for the school cash online, which is a 9 digit number that Naomi can provide for you if you do not have this number.

**Please remember to send in the forms that were sent home last Friday. These forms are very important as they update our emergency procedures and contacts. Thank you.
**On rainy days, please send your child with rain boots and rain coats as we like the children to get fresh air as much as possible even if it is raining. Because we can only let the children play in certain zones, often the students will be spending recess and lunch on the field where their feet end up wet and cold.
Orange Shirt Day is coming up next week and will take place on Wednesday, September 30th. Please have your child wear an orange shirt to school to honour those that went to residential school. Why do we wear Orange Shirts?
- Orange Shirt Dayis a day when we honour the Indigenous children who were sent away to residential schools in Canada and learn more about the history of those schools.
- Wearing an orange shirt and promoting the slogan, “Every Child Matters,” is an affirmation of our commitment to raise awareness of the residential school experience and to ensure that every child matters as we focus on our hope for a better future in which children are empowered to help each other.
Picture Day will be Monday, October 5th.
