Happy New Years

7 Jan

We’d like to welcome back everyone and extend a Happy New Years greeting. We are looking forward to 2013 being a great year!  If you have not already signed in to Follow Blog via email on this homepage, please do so as our blog is our main source of ongoing up-to-date communication. Check out all our pages for new information i.e., events and activities on our Things Happening page; parent workshops on a variety of informative topics on our Community Corner page; family events and initiatives on our School Council page; and the latest news from the library and eco-school.

The snow has arrived so please ensure your child is properly dressed for the weather and snow-fun.  ALL students, including our older students, need to have indoor shoes. Students will be asked to remove their outdoor boots/shoes upon arrival into the building.

Also, a reminder, students cannot remain indoors during recess because they are ill; we have no supervision inside. If a student is too sick to go outside, they should not be at school.
