Good afternoon Creeker Families!
At this time of year, I want to remind everyone that you need to check each morning regardless of the current weather, to make sure there are no school delays or closures, bus delays or cancellations. This can be done via the school or district website, http://web1.nbed.nb.ca/sites/asd-w/Pages/default.aspx, twitter, listening to a local radio station, or phoning the hotline at 453-5454 or 1-888-388-4455. In addition, this is the time of year when the weather changes significantly from day to day. One day it may be below -10 but later in the day it is predicted to be +10. So please keep an eye on the weather forecast for the day when you are preparing the children to come to school, and bring appropriate hats, mitts, etc. In this wet weather it is a good idea to wear rain boots and send extra socks and/or pants as well.
Please find attached a letter about our school looking for volunteers. We are hoping to find people to help out with various things to improve our school. If you think there may be something you can do to help out, please have a look at the letter and return it to us (or just send us an email). We are looking to create a bank of volunteers who may be able to help us with a variety of things from writing grant proposals to digging ditches and everything in between. It also doesn’t have to be a parent who chooses to volunteer to help, it can be anyone who has the expertise and is willing to assist our school community. Thank you for considering whether you could volunteer your time.
