Good afternoon!

We hope everyone had a good week! Our students are really enjoying student-led clubs and are taking initiative to be ‘leaders’ of these clubs. It is so great to see. We are now offering the following clubs: art, hockey, rock-painting and Pokemon! Thanks to our teachers who are supervising, as well as a parent who will be hosting the Pokemon Club starting next Friday.

Tuesday, January 24 – National Compliment Day (activity in the gym at 10:30)

Thursday, January 26 – Great 4/5 class to Cora’s and the Sports Hall of Fame

Reminders/Items to Note:

-I (Mrs. Jordan) will be out on medical leave until February 6. If you need support during the time, please reach out to your child’s teacher or to Ms. Elizabeth McCabe who will be in the office fulfilling my duties during this time (Elizabeth.McCabe@nbed.nb.ca)

-Just a reminder that drop-off in front of the school in the ‘drive through’ zone is Kiss and Drop only. If it is going to take longer than a few seconds to drop off your child, please park in one of our designated spots.

-The February calendar will be sent out next week.

-Home and School will be doing a “Gift Card Raffle” on March 1 in support of student activities and are looking for donations of gift cards! If you would like to donate a gift card, please send it in with your child. Thank you so much in advance!

-You may be aware that EECD is looking to make changes to the French Immersion program beginning this September. They shared some information with parents in an email sent out to you on Dec. 15th and they are holding public consultation sessions. The next session will be held in Fredericton at the Delta Hotel on Wednesday, Jan. 25th from 6:30 PM to 8:30 PM.  You may also wish to provide feedback through an EECD survey which you can access here:   


Thank you and have a safe and wonderful weekend.
