Weekly Update: October 25 – 29

“Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go.” Joshua 1:9

Early Pick-Up

Students leaving school prior to dismissal will be called from the classroom when parents arrive at the school and buzz the office. Please do not notify the school of early pick-up times through the Safe Arrival system as these are not seen by office staff. Please contact teachers through D2L or e-mail to provide this information.

Animals on School Property

For the safety of all students and staff, please do not bring your pets onto school property. We have children and staff that are allergic to pet dander and we also have children and staff that are afraid of certain pets. We would like to ensure that all children and staff feel safe from the moment they step onto school property and when leaving for home at the end of the day. Thank you for your co-operation.

Mask Hygiene

Please ensure your children wear clean masks daily to school. It is beneficial for each child to have a spare mask in case it is required.

Rethink Pink Day

As a school community, we raised $1714.30 for our Rethink Pink Day initiative! A big thank you to all those who made a donation towards this important cause. It is appreciated.

Halloween Dance-a-thon

On the day of your child’s Halloween dance-a-thon, they are invited to dress up in a costume if they wish to do so. Please know that Halloween masks, accessories and weapons are NOT to be worn or brought to school. Due to safety, these items will be taken away and returned to your child at the end of the day. Thank you in advance for your understanding and cooperation.

Halloween Treats or Items
