Attention creative and musical families! We are putting out a call to have our own song written by staff and students. More details are on the attached sheet below, but get your children thinking about what makes this school great, and how we can celebrate our achievements as a community with heart. More about that in January!
A great big thank you to all the parents that are supporting us in moving students towards independence, and for keeping the hours of instruction free from disruptions. You will hear from your childs' teacher about what is preferred for their class. Also, as we are having an issue with dogs in the building, please either leave Fido at home, or, if you walk your dog Max here as part of our active travel plan, make sure that Brutus has a leash to be tied up out of the way outside. Many of our students are afraid of dogs, and even the small ones named Fifi that can be carried should NOT be brought into the school.
Please remind your child that we go outside twice a day for recess, and that with the cold weather coming next week they need to dress accordingly. Thank you!
We are pleased to let you know that we are beginning to sort out Christmas Hamper supplies, and your child's teacher will be letting you know what you can contribute. Hampers are being picked up from the school on Wednesday December 18th.
We are in need of some help at the Where Abouts program for Tuesday and Thursday mornings. Please let the office know if you are available and willing to help out. Thanks!
