Dear Parents/Guardians,

Students will be receiving their report cards for second term, on Monday, April 11th.  Please review the report with your child to encourage and celebrate his/her learning.  Parent- teacher interviews will take place Thursday, April 14th as well as other times provided by your child’s teacher.  Teachers will be communicating details about booking appointments.  Parents will have the option to meet in person or receive a phone call from the teacher. We look forward to connecting with parents/guardians about student learning.


Oil cleanup has now been completed on the school playground. The Department of Environment was on site March 24th to do another inspection of the playground.  The cleanup work was approved and all the playground can be used.  It was reported to the school that we may still smell oil at times depending on the wind and the weather. This small amount is not a danger to people or the environment.  It will disappear as the oil residue degrades with sunlight, heat, and rain.  The hill is currently muddy because some grass was removed so will remain off limits to students until it can be reseeded.  Other parts of the playground are also muddy and wet because it is spring! Please ensure students are dressed for outdoor play (rubber boots/splash pants). Some extra clothes, in your child’s backpack, is a good idea.  Students look forward to this part of their day.  It is much more enjoyable when they are dry and warm.
