Remembrance Day

Good morning from Frank L. Bowser School,

We would like to thank everyone for their generous donations throughout the clothing drive last week.  We filled almost a complete transport truck trailer full of items we know are heading to a place that they will be appreciated for an entire second life.  All while raising funds for the re-building of the Rebecca Scofield All World Super Playpark.

On a similar note, thank you to all who joined us for our Pancake Breakfast on Saturday.  It was so wonderful to see so many community members braving the weather to support such a worthy cause.

On Thursday November 8th at 9:10am we will be holding our Remembrance Day Assembly in our Frank L. Bowser Gym.  All are welcome for this solemn gathering and we will be joined by several veterans and current service members. 

We are asking anyone in our parent community that is a veteran, current service member, or a member of a first responder service such as police officer, paramedic, fire fighter, etc. to join us in uniform if possible.  You presence would be very much appreciated and recognized.  This would further the learning and understanding for all students in attendance and give a real world, first hand example of the services and sacrifices made on a daily basis to ensure the safety and security of our entire community.

We are also asking any students who are part of a club or program that has a uniform to wear their uniform for the ceremony on Thursday in order to recognize their involvement.  We will also be looking for student members in uniform to take part in a colour parade as part of the flag bearing portion of the ceremony.

Finally a reminder that there is no school this Friday November 9th as it is professional development and report card preparation for teachers.  There is also no school on Monday November 12 in recognition of Remembrance Day.  Have a wonderful long weekend with your families!
