Hello Families,

Happy Halloween Everyone!  I hope you all had a fantastic evening if you celebrate this event.  I have attached our “Week at a Glance” for your reference.

There are 8 divisions going on a Cultural field trip this Tuesday.  Please make sure you have signed the permission forms and returned them to your child’s teacher. (Division 1,2,4,5,9,10,11&12)

Attendance is really important at school.  Unless your child is ill, please make every effort to have your child attend regularly.  Every day they miss, puts their learning in jeopardy.  If you need support in this area, please reach out and let me know.

PAC Bottle Drive on Sunday November 7th from 9:00am to 12:00pm in the Ruth King parking lot.

  • Please refrain from sending Halloween candy and/or junk food to school. Please keep the treats for home.  The sugar can really affect some students and their ability to focus on their school work.
  • As the weather is getting colder and wetter, please make sure your child has a change of clothes in their back pack at all times.
  • Please label your child’s hoodies and jackets as these are the majority of the items in the LOST & FOUND.
  • Please remember to do the Daily Health Check with your child and keep them home if your child is sick. This is still so important and we all really appreciate your support in keeping everyone healthy.
