Weekly Message - October 28, 2022

Dear Parents / Guardians,


Teachers spent their day today focussing on continued professional learning around the new curriculum. We worked together on tasks connected to the new curriculum, using thinking routines to support students in sharing their understanding, and formative assessments to identify next steps in learning. Teachers are exciting to bring this learning and the new ideas back to their classrooms to support students. This work will help us focus our School Development Plan goals in Literacy, Numeracy and Well-Being for learning throughout the year. 

Here are a few things to note…

1.     Jacket Racket

Monday, October 31st is the last day to donate your lightly used or new items for our Jacket Racket collection. Thank you very much for all the support received thus far. I know the families that receive these items will be very thankful.

2.     Hallowe'en Activities – October 31, 2022

Techers have communicated the various activities that may be occurring within their classrooms on this day. As a whole school, students will be engaging the following activities:

a)     Hallowe'en Dance (for students only) in the afternoon (thank you to School Council for providing a DJ and decorations)

b)    Pumpkinella: on October 31st families are invited to take to school a decorated or carved pumpkin to put on display in the Library Learning Commons.

  - Participating students should carry their pumpkin to and from school in a tear-proof bag.

  - If you would like to light up your pumpkin, please use a battery-operated tea light (no candles)

  - Please label your pumpkin with a permanent marker

  - All pumpkins not picked up by 4:15pm on October 31st will be composted

c)     Costumes: Students have the option to wear school appropriate costumes. Costumes that have fully covering masks, toy weapons, or that may scare students in our school community will be asked to be removed

  - Please note that costumes are optional. If your child(ren) will not be wearing a costume, they are welcome wear orange and/or black clothing, or dress as per a typical school day.

  - Your child's teacher will communicate when students will be invited to dress up in costumes should families choose.
