Memo for Garden Creek Parents and Guardians
Good Morning, Creeker Families,
Lots going on this week at the Creek :
Food Safety Issue – A reminder that students should not be bringing food or drinks onto the playground. We know they may be finishing up a hot drink or a breakfast item ,but, for their safety on the playground, we ask that they finish it before leaving the car in the morning.
- Although it is nice for students to share and it is a great virtue, please remind your child that, due to student allergies which may be unknown to them, to refrain from sharing snacks unless they have gone through the teacher.
Purple Pinkies for Polio – This week, students can bring in a loonie or toonie to help fight polio. Please send in your money on or before this Thursday, October 18th. On Friday, we will have an assembly and students will have their pinkies marked purple as a way of showing their support for this. Thank you for your support
Safe Schools Week – this week, we will be running safety drills as part of Safe Schools Week. Please see the attachment to review our protocols around this.
