Weekly Message September 4

Dear Parents and Guardians,

This week we started a new school year!  We have been very excited to welcome students back into the school building and would like to thank all of you for supporting our teachers and our staff for making this unprecedented school opening a success. Students and staff alike were excited to see each other again. Welcome to our new families and especially to our new kindergarten families. You will soon find out that Alexander Ferguson School is a village of caring and generous people – young and old. Our inquiry topic this year is “Generosity". Throughout our year, we will be focusing on the many ways we can each demonstrate generosity and kindness in and out of our school.

We are excited to share that under the Re-Entry guidelines for CBE we are allowed to have guest artists outside of the school as long as there are COVID precautions in place including physical distancing. Stay tuned for us to share the details and excitement of Gully Day.

RT @ChildMntlHealth: Is today the most depressing day of the year? Actually, it isn’t. #BlueMonday may be science fiction, but it offers up a time to talk about the challenges we're currently facing in light of COVID-19 and to build resilience for the weeks (months) to come: https://t.co/UfszUGzw0W https://t.co/kJjc2dxWRW
