Week at a Glance Oct 7 - 11

The autumn chill is upon us! While the atmosphere inside our school is warm and inviting, the weather outside can be quite cold, especially in the mornings. A reminder to students, to dress in layers.

We started this week with Orange shirt day. It was great to see many staff and students participating in this event of reconciliation. We ended the week with welcoming our new Leo Hayes Leadership students that lead us in enrichment clubs. Students participated in gym activities, puzzles, board games, bingo, and a walk. The LHHS students will visit us every other week for clubs.

A few reminders: 

School Pictures- The order forms for photos are due Thursday, October 10th. Retakes will be held Wednesday, October 16th.  *A note regarding retakes; If a student has their photo retaken, their original photo becomes no longer available as an option. 

Breakfast Program- Breakfast program is on Tuesday, October 8th. This week students will be having  pancakes and smoothies. All students are welcome. When they arrive on the playground they come right inside the grade 2-5 door and come downstairs to the gymnasium to enjoy breakfast with friends. If arriving close to bell students will take the breakfast back to classroom.  

Fire Prevention Week- This week is fire prevention week. Students will be bringing home information from the Fire department. These are great pamphlets to go through as a family. Classroom teachers will also be discussing fire safety.
