  • Ask for help from the school before the problem gets too big. No problem is too small. We are here to help.

Fall Back Into Reading Day: We had two guest readers “zoom” in to read to us today.

Hats at School: Can you wear your hats in school? You bet! Hats are a great way to show your individual style and during those cold Canadian winters, they keep you warm and toasty as the temperature dips. Students may wear their hats indoors provided they do not pose a safety risk. Students may be asked to remove their hats during special school assemblies or if they become a distraction to themselves or others. 

Safety TO and FROM school: As the days get shorter, and darkness lingers a little longer in the mornings and returns earlier in the afternoons, we want to remind students about things that they can do to stay safe on their way TO and FROM school each day. 

  • Walk in pairs or groups and always stay together

  • Wear bright or reflective clothing 

  • Do not arrive at school too early and go straight home right after the bell (supervision starts at 8:25am and there is no playground supervision after school)

  • Don’t talk to strangers 

  • If you ever feel worried or scared, you can always come back to the school and ring the front doorbell for help
