Parent / Teacher Conferences...

Mme Leith-Mills is beginning next Wednesday after school, but most conferences will be on Thursday November 27th. This is a non-instructional day, so there will be no classes in session that day to allow us to meet with parents. Please check with your child's teacher whether they would like the student to attend as well. Many teachers are also meeting Wednesday after school.  Here is the link to book interviews

Operation Christmas Child and Christmas Hampers...

Mme Reader's class is working on shoeboxes to send away to needy children in developing nations. If you are interested in joining them (it has to be this week!) please let us know. It is also that time of year that we will begin collecting items to make a real difference for 19 families in the district. Your child's teacher will let you know how to help. Also, Santa's Workshop is now making appointments for those who are in need of Christmas gifts this Christmas. You can contact them at 250-897-1994. Mon - Fri 10am - 3pm.

Tomorrow is a Professional Learning Community (PLC) Day and we will dismiss all students at 12:20pm.
