News from our Kindergarten Classes...

Our Kindergarten classes had a fabulous trip to Chudleigh’s Apple Farm! After the exciting bus ride, they had the opportunity to pick apples from the trees and learn some interesting apple facts. It was great to meet a whole bunch of farm animals, play in the hay and enjoy lunch in the fresh country air. A great time was had by all!
Last week, the Kindergarten classes walked over to the Dufferin-Clarke fire station to donate food that they have been collecting since Thanksgiving. They dropped the non-perishable food donations into the bin that is distributed amongst local food banks on a regular basis. 

This was wonderful experience for our students as they had the chance to learn about charity and the importance of giving back to those less fortunate then themselves. They also learned that by donating food, they are community helpers!
Finally, we had a visit from a very special person, Mrs Schwartz our Kindergarten teacher from last year and her new baby Brooke Isabella came to say "hi" to us. We think that baby Brooke is so cute and we loved it when she smiled at us! Congratulations to Mrs. Schwartz! We hope you bring Brooke to visit us again soon.  

Until next time...with love from Mrs Sevel and Mrs. Piso and Mrs. Sentheyval and Ms Almeida and their students.

New Year's Day

January 1 marks the New Year in the Gregorian calendar, and is celebrated by many communities world-wide.

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."
