Hello Families! I hope you had a wonderful week. It is hard to believe next
week is the last week of March, especially since we have yet to experience
On Tuesday, staff and students wore ‘special socks’ to raise awareness for
World Down Syndrome Day. Thank you to our very own Mira and her Mom Gillian for
handing out the socks for us! I hope your children were able to come home and
talk about Down Syndrome.
This afternoon, our staff will be participating in a professional learning
session delivered by The Learning Disabilities Association of New Brunswick.
This supports our School Improvement Goal of being more inclusive and we are
looking forward to the opportunity to ask questions and gain strategies for the

-It is confirmed that no other work will be done at our school site until July
