Friday May 26 – Comfy Clothes Day – wear what makes you comfortable. Maybe that is Jammies, PJs, your "oodie", sweat pants and a sweatshirt, your favourite t-shirt, or even your school uniform. Be comfortable! 

The CAS Grade 5 School Leadership Students have been diligently leading their peers in tidying up our outdoor fields and playgrounds. This is even more notable this week as we celebrate Earth Day. Their contribution to the environment and to their school is impressive. Thank you to all students who saw them outside at lunch recess and assisted in their efforts. Together all of us can have a positive impact on our environment and also contribute to the ongoing effort to beautify our school.

Grade 4 and 5 Students in the Portables 

The CBE  started some minor repair work to the middle of the compound closest to the portables. We had hoped the work would be completed in a week, however, this doesn't seem to be the case. The entrance with steps at the front of the portables is temporarily blocked off. Also, the heat to the portables will be diverted to space heaters for the next few days as the repair work is completed. If your child is in the portables, please ensure they bring their cardigan with them and that they dress warmly as it might be cool in the portables. The weather this week is going to be a bit cool, please dress warmly or bring an extra sweater, just in case.  


Gymnastics Unit in Physical Education 

Gymnastics continues! During this unit, the following safety expectations must be followed by all to reduce injuries and accidents: 

·       If students have long hair, it should be tied back 

·       No jewelry should be worn, especially not earrings, necklaces and jewelry that can be caught on equipment. 

·       Students will need to be in bare feet when on the mats and equipment. It is not recommended that tights or leggings be worn. Students will be asked to remove socks, tights, leggings. If tunics or skirts are worn, students are encouraged to wear navy or black shorts under their tunic or skirt.    

Ask your student about our new water bottle filling station! 

Thank-you school council! We now have three incredible water filling stations in our school. Our students and staff love them!  It is a great addition to our school.   If you want to have impact in our school and with our students, please consider joining School Council at the end of the month. You will also be part of the decision making on great initiatives such as this.
