Primary Play Day is Friday, June 16th

Our Primary Play Day for K-3 will be on Friday, June 16th, 2017 (Rain date: Tuesday June 20th).  This is a fun filled day when your child will be participating in organized games and activities for the day with their classmates and other students in the Primary Division.

These activities will be taking place outside, so please dress your child appropriately for the weather – shorts, t-shirt, hat, running shoes. Please also send a water bottle and sunscreen with your child. To be proactive, please put sunscreen on your child before they come to school in the morning, as they will be going outside to play shortly after morning announcements. 

Please label clothing items, water bottles and sunscreen. Teachers will ensure that the children are drinking regularly throughout the day and they will be reminding the students to reapply their sunscreen at recess and lunch time. It may be a good idea to show them how to apply their sunscreen once it wears off to foster independence.

For safety reasons, children should be in running shoes for the day. They will not be participating if wearing other footwear.

To encourage school spirit, we are asking your child to wear team colours. A note will be sent home to let you know which team your child is on, so please have them wear this colour t-shirt, shorts and hat if possible.

Looking forward to a great day!

The Primary Team

January is Tamil Heritage Month

On October 5, 2016, Motion M-24 was passed in the Federal Parliament, officially proclaiming January of every year as Tamil Heritage Month.  Tamil Heritage Month aims to celebrate the richness of the Tamil language and its literature, as well as to highlight the vibrant traditions, histories, arts, and cultures of Tamil Canadians. In addition, it seeks to recognize the significant contributions of Tamil Canadians in key areas of social, cultural, economic, and political spheres. 
According to the Tamil calendar, January 14, 2017 is the start of the Tamil New Year during the month of “Thai”. On this day Tamils around the diaspora will be celebrating Tamil New Year and Thai Pongal, the Tamil harvest festival. 
Thai Pongal is the most important and widely-celebrated festival amongst Tamils around the globe. Thai Pongal is a time to give thanks for the blessings of the previous year and a time to look forward to the New Year. Pongal refers to rice cooked in milk and sweetened with chakkarai…

Character Assembly on "Integrity"

Our Character Assembly this month will be focusing on "Integrity". Throughout the month, our students have been discussing what integrity means to them in the classrooms and with their friends in the school yard. Our students are learning that to have integrity means to be truthful and sincere; to care for the well-being of others by how they treat each other. Displaying integrity is not always easy. It is one of our most difficulty character traits to live by and sometimes it takes years to truly understand what it means.

We look forward to honouring those students who have displayed this trait at our awards assembly on Wednesday, October 28th at 11:15 a.m.

Parents and guardians are welcome to join us.  We thank Mr. Clark and Ms. Croteau's grade 2/3s for hosting the assembly this month.

"Integrity is doing the right thing even if it's difficulty; even when no one is watching." 

"If it is not right do not do it; if it is not true do not say it."
