Happy New Year - Bonne et heureuse année!

We are back to school on Thursday, January 05th, 2017 Day 5 at 8:53 a.m.

 

Looking forward to seeing all of our wonderful students after a nice two week holiday.  It is January weather out there, so dress for the temperatures and be safe on your way to school.

 

 

 

Happy Holidays to all our families! Joyeuses fetes à nos familles!

Well, we made it to the end of the year.  Wishing everyone a safe and wonderful holiday season.  Students are out today at 2:30 p.m. and will return to school on January 05, 2017 at 8:53 a.m.

 

Have fun during the break, relax and enjoy the time off.  Looking forward to continued learning and growth in the new year.

 

 

Winter is here...

Well, we had a long fall with beautiful weather and the snow stayed away for an extended period.  Winter has come back and with it comes cold temperatures, wet snow and yucky conditions.  Proper winter clothing and boots are a must now to keep our students safe and warm while outside at recess.  Students and staff are working hard to keep the entrances clear and safe.  Labelling items is always a great way to have them return back home to the proper owner.

 

Note that students remain on the playground in the morning until the bell rings at 8:53 a.m.   Indoor recess will only happen once the windchill is below -25 C.  If the windchill prior to school reaches below -25, students will be ushered in for their protection.  Let`s bundle up to stay warm this winter!

Parent-student-teacher conferences

 

By now you should all have received information regarding conference day on Friday, Nov. 4th.  Thank you for joining us to celebrate your child's achievements to date this year.  Students are expected to join their parents during this conference.  There will be no regular classes for students this Friday, Oct. 4th.

NOTE:  Kindergarten will have conferences on Thursday AND Friday.  So, there is no school for our kinders on both Thursday Nov. 3rd and Friday Nov. 04th.

Thanks to the help of our very own Mrs. Conley, donated clothing will be available for everyone.  Pop on over to the gym and get some great stuff!

 

Thank you again for being a team member in our learning community.

 

See you all Friday - à vendredi!
