Hot Chocolate/Popcorn Sale - Dec 13 (After School):  Grade 5 Fundraiser - Bring a Toonie - $1 for Hot Chocolate and $1 for Popcorn. All proceeds go toward Camp Thunderbird. 

Emergency Comfort Kits:  Please watch for information coming home from your child’s classroom teacher regarding refreshing their Emergency Comfort Kits.  If your child is in Kindergarten or is new to the school this year, information was sent home about how to prepare a Comfort Kit for your child.  These should be returned to your child’s teacher as soon as possible.

It is Hot Lunch (SUBWAY) this Friday if you Ordered for your Child:  A reminder to send a snack as well!

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.

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 and the Office.   Thank you!
