A reminder that tomorrow is Good Friday, Monday is Easter Monday and Tuesday is a professional development day for our staff. We wish everyone a happy and safe weekend. Thanks to Alena Hamilton for the bunny art!
Next week, Mr. Matheson, Mme Jègues and I will be visiting classes with “Spring” reminders such as appropriate clothing for school and staying focused on learning even on the beautiful sunny days we hope will be arriving soon!
Our grade 8 band did a fantastic job at the curriculum evening last week. Thanks to the students who also attended and shared their learning with parents of students in kindergarten to grade 12, and to the classes that did a great job displaying how the new curriculum and the core competencies are working.
Please remember to use designated areas to drop off your students. We are working hard to keep students safe. It is important that students are dropped off only in the lower parking lot, the Field of Dreams parking lot, or the front off the school. Other places (the side of the road) put their safety in jeopardy. Thanks very much and have a fantastic weekend.
