Reminder - Early Dismissal:  There is Early Dismissal today, Wednesday, Nov. 27 AND tomorrow, Thursday, Nov. 28 for parent/teacher interviews.  Children will be dismissed at 1:48 pm.   

“Give a Kid a Coat” and “Out of the Cold”:  We would like to put the call out for any gently used coats in order to support the "Give a Kid a Coat" campaign by "Sleep Country Canada"; as well as any blankets, warm socks, toques, gloves, scarves, tents and sleeping bags in order to support the "Out of the Cold" initiative by "Our Place Society". Please drop off any items you wish to donate to the box outside the school office.  We will happily bring these items to their respective organizations.

Wet Weather Preparedness:  As we get more wet weather, families are asked to have their children dressed appropriately to go outside as most days children will go outdoors for their breaks.  Rubber boots, waterproof jackets and rain pants are suggested especially if your child likes to play in/near the puddles!  A full change of clothes in their backpacks is also helpful should they need to change.

Snacks & Utensils:  As children grow, their nutritional needs change and they may need additional snacks at school.  Please have a chat with your child(ren) to see if they might need more food in their lunches.  Also, if you are packing food items that require eating utensils, please ensure that you send them along with your child. Thank you!

Reporting of Student Absences:  A friendly reminder for families to ensure that you contact the school Safe Arrival Line at 250 658-4002 if your child will be absent from school.  If you’re child will be away for more than one day, please ensure that you call of all the days that your child will be away.  This is a huge help to the Safe Arrival Parent Volunteers.   Thank you!
