Busy at Christine Meikle

Dear Parents and Guardians,

Classrooms at Christine Meikle continue to be busy.

A typical November event is a performance from Hoja. Thank you to Emma F and her family for providing this opportunity for the school. We certainly appreciate Emma giving us a gift on her birthday!

We also gathered as a school community for a Remembrance Day Ceremony. Classrooms presented their wreaths and learned about Remembrance Day through videos and music.

Thank you to families for supporting the two fundraisers we have had, Farm to School Vegetables and Fundscrip.

The weather has even been cooperating, allowing for some nice community walks.

December will have two exciting events for students. We are debuting a special musical performance for our students from Mike Goossen & Jesse Shire on the morning of December 14th. The highly anticipated Policeman’s Ball will be held on Dec. 21.

We look forward to seeing you at the next School Council Meeting on January 8 at 6:00 PM. At this meeting, we will be exploring the possibility of moving to a modified calendar for the 2019 – 2020 school year. Parent feedback and discussion are very important in this information gathering process.

Sometime in January we will be rolling out our new Christine Meikle School website. Look forward to a more colourful and appealing website. Our hope is to have updates on school news and events updated weekly. We are looking forward to this new platform.

Remember: December 21 is the last day of school for students. We return to School on January 7.

Thank you for your continued support. Wishing everyone a safe and relaxing winter holiday.

Sandy and Andrea​
