December Notes

Date: November 30, 2017 Author: Jennifer Plaxton Categories: News Bits

PROPER DRESS

The weather is starting to turn colder, so we want to remind you that children must be dressed appropriately for the weather. Hats, mittens/gloves, warm coats, snow pants and boots are needed so they can play outside during recess.

CHANGE OF CLOTHES

We would like to ask parents to please send a complete change of clothes in with your child(ren). Some students tend to come in wet from recess and have to stay that way for the day.

WINTER CANCELLATION OF SCHOOL BUSES

If you want to know if school buses are cancelled you will receive a text if you have signed up for the “Remind” App, or please check out the School Board website at: http://wqsb.qc.ca. If you do not have a computer, please listen for the announcements on the radio.

LICE CHECKS

We ask that parents check their child’s head regularly or daily if their child has had a case of lice.  If you discover lice, please call the school so that we can follow appropriate procedures.

LOST AND FOUND

The “Lost and Found” area is  full.  Please check the lost and found before the last school day in December.  We will deliver what is left to the needy in the area.

FOOD DRIVE FOR CHRISTMAS

We will be collecting canned food, pickles, pasta, rice, toothpaste, laundry detergent, and any other non-perishable items from now until Wednesday, December 13th, 2017. Please make sure that you check the expiration dates on the items.  Please give generously so we will have enough items to help out some families in our school.

ANGEL TREE

We still have Angels left on our Angel Tree.  So if you would like more information or you are interested in receiving an Angel, please call Margaret Burns at the office at 819-663-4842 ext.0.

LATE STUDENTS           

Parents, we would like to ask you again, to please make sure that our students start getting to school by bell time at 7:55 a.m. Remember that ‘lates’ are recorded on a daily basis and do reflect  on your child’s  report  card.  As well, make sure that they check in with Margaret at the office on their way in.
