In Flanders Fields
In Flanders Fields the poppies blow
Between the crosses, row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.
We are the dead, short days ago
We lived, fell down, saw sunset glow,
Loved, and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders Fields.
Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow.
STUDENT INVOLVED CONFERENCES: November 4, 5 and 6
KINDERGARTEN TO GRADE 7
Conference times have been sent home.
These conferences provide a valuable opportunity for you to learn more about your child's progress at school. A reminder that students attend with their parents.
The Scholastic Book Fair is coming to WBSchool this month during Conferences! The Book Fair provides students and parents with a great opportunity to buy books and at the same time help get books for the school (we get a percentage of the total sales in books!!). Perhaps do a little early Christmas shopping??!!
BOOK FAIR HOURS:
Wednesday, Nov. 4: 4:00 – 7:30pm
Thursday, Nov. 5: 4:00 – 7:30pm
Friday, Nov. 6: 9:00 – 11:00am
Thanks for your support!

OTHER IMPORTANT NEWS and REMINDERS
- Just a reminder all students need shoes for the gym that do not go outside; they should also be non-marking soles (usually white soles).
- No food or drinks allowed in the gym.
- At 2nd Nutrition Break: Bring only foods that need reheating; not frozen foods. Frozen food zapping hogs the microwave and because other kids are waiting in line, it creates big problems.
- Don't forget to use your child's agenda to pass on any special requests to your child's teacher(s). You can also email your child's teacher.
- BRRRRR. IT'S COLD OUTSIDE. Remember the cold weather will soon be here and it's important to dress in layers and ensure there are mitts, hats, etc. in your child's backpack.
- Speaking of cold… Does your child need a coat for the winter?? What about boots?? Help with this is only a phone call away… Evergreen Basic Needs has coats and boots of all sizes for distribution. Just give them a call at 642 9736. Donations of boots and coats gratefully accepted as well. We want everyone to be warm this winter.
- As well with the winter weather at our heels, we will be starting our winter footwear rules. All students must remove their footwear when entering the school (and before leaving the carpeted areas). All students must change into indoor footwear at that point.
- There is no student entry in the morning before 8:50 am. The only students in the building before the bell are early bus students and they also head outside at 8:35 am. There is an adult supervisor on the playground starting at that time. When you drop your children off, they need to head to the back playground. We do not provide "babysitting services" in the front lobby. Thank you for your understanding.
The Breakfast Program is off to a great start this year. Each morning we serve a nutritious breakfast. Students enjoy a wide variety of items including toast, cereal, cereal bars, fruit cups, yogurt, milk and juice. The Breakfast Program runs each morning from 8:40-9:00 and is open to all students. A big thank you goes out to two of our teachers: Mrs. Berthaudin and Mrs. Arnason and to our parent volunteer Nancy Bahuaud, for serving the breakfast to our students each day.
Report cards will be sent home on Friday, November 27, 2015.
If you have any questions, comments or concerns, please contact your child's teacher.
