Classroom parties for Kindergarten to Grade 7 will be held on Friday, February 12th.
Classroom party for Junior Kindergarten will be held on Thursday, February 11th.
A reminder that we follow an inclusive practice in that if your child hands out valentines, he/she must give one to each of his/her classmates. Teachers will be sending home class lists and further information about party plans.
FUN LUNCH INFO
Our next Fun Lunch is this Friday, February 25, 2016. Forms go home February 12th and are due February 19th.
Students are NOT to bring any soft drinks (pop) or energy drinks to school for consumption during school hours. They are not every day choices. If students have an unopened one at school, it will be sent home. If they have an open one, it will be poured out.
All students and staff have access to water throughout the day and are encouraged to bring water/ water bottles to school. A bottle refill fountain is located in the front hall. Students are encouraged to bring / purchase fruit juices and milk for consumption at nutrition breaks. Occasionally at special events (class parties), teachers may permit other choices.
This supports our efforts in regards to the Manitoba Healthy Schools initiative.
Just a reminder that as part of our "safe school" planning, we ask that anyone visiting our school, stop by the office before going to classrooms, etc. When picking up your child at the end of the day, we ask that you wait in the foyer. Thanks for your understanding.
