Dates to Remember


Principal's Message

Upcoming Events

​Hello Longhorn Families,
Thank you for keeping informed by reviewing updates from the school:
·         Our Remembrance Day Assembly was Friday.  It was great to see some parents and grandparents attend.  Thank you to everyone who contributed to the assembly.  If you have spare change to send in to support the Canadian Legion for donating poppies to the entire school, you can forward it to homeroom teachers on Tuesday.  See the news article for photos and further details, but highlights included:
o   Alex D bravely shared thoughts on the proud legacy of indigenous veterans in Canadian history. 
o   Madelyn H ? courageously tackled the most difficult assignment facing any junior high student – playing solo of The Last Post.
o   Addi L was awarded the Chad Horn Memorial Award for integrity, selflessness, and active citizenship.  She is a role model for us all.
·         Last Call for John Ware Clothing is Sunday, November 10.  See the news item on the website for ordering. 
·         There is no school on Monday, November 11 due to Remembrance Day statutory holiday.  Thank you to all veterans for preserving the freedoms we enjoy.
·         Parent Council is this Thursday evening, November 14, 6:30-8 PM in our library. 
o   See the minutes from October on our website.
o   This month’s main topic is expected to be budget implications for our school.
o   Regarding the budget, every school in the province is bracing for cuts.  At the school level, we do not know any more information than has been made public from our Chief Superintendent’s message to parents last week.  I anticipate knowing more on Thursday afternoon.  The delay is due to the fact that never before has a government cut education funding partway through a school year.  Further complicating decisions for school districts is the cuts are retroactive to the beginning of the school year, after staffing has been in place for over 2 months.  I will be doing everything I can to maintain our focus on classroom supports.
·         Parent Conferences are approaching on November 21 and 22.  We look forward to seeing everyone then.
o   Thursday, November 21 is an early dismissal day of 11:50 AM.
o   Friday, November 22 is a non-instructional day for students.
o   Conferences bookings will open November 14 @ 7 AM for parents to book.
o   You can go now to MyCBE portal to ensure you are set up to book conferences.
o   Call our office for support on booking conferences, if necessary.
·         Thank you to all parents who responded to my request last week to catch up on overdue fees from September and October field trips.  This still remains an issue though.  I will be sending home individual requests to parents in the coming days.  As you can appreciate, trying to recover fees is taking a great deal of time resources that are better spent on other issues. 
 ​Have a great week!
