Families are invited to join us for a special Remembrance Day Assembly, November 9th starting at 10:45 a.m. This is a very serious and solemn assembly; there is no clapping.
Please sign in at the Front Office.
Tomorrow is our Hallowe'en Spirit Day!
Students are encouraged to wear bright fall colours (red, yellow, orange, etc.) or orange and black. If they would like, students may also choose to wear a costume. We encourage students to bring their costumes with them to change into later in the day. This will help ensure that students can engage in active play at recess and at lunchtime.
As a reminder, if a student chooses to wear a costume, the costume needs to:
-be an appropriate length so students don't trip, especially if playing outside
-include just the costume - NO ACCESSORIES especially anything that looks like a weapon
-have easily seen faces - NO MASKS
Please refrain from sending in any additional food treats for the class.
Finally, for those families who will be trick or treating tomorrow evening, please remember that we are a NUT SAFE school. Please help ensure the safety of all of our students by being vigilant in checking your child's lunches and sn…
