Weather conditions will determine the final outcome of activity choices.

Most of all, it is an experience the children will never forget.

BREAKFAST PROGRAM

Our breakfast program is running well, thanks to our grant from the Breakfast Club of Canada.  We are accepting cash donations to go towards the program if you are interested.

Please send donations in an envelope marked “Breakfast Club”.

Our milk program from the School Board will be starting this month.

VACCINATIONS

On Tuesday, October 29th the grade 4 students will be receiving their vaccinations. More information will be sent home later this month.

HALLOWEEN DAY

Students are invited to wear their costume to school on Wednesday, October 31st.  For safety reasons, students are asked to leave props or weapons at home.  If your child has a costume with a mask, they can wear it during the parade, but must leave it in the class during outdoor play.

The Halloween parade in the school will start at 8:55.

In the weeks following Halloween, please save the candy and treats for at home. Continue to send healthy options for lunch and snack time.
