Our 'Gift of Music' performance is on Wednesday, December 18th at 7:00 pm. Choir members are asked to be at the school by 6:45 pm and meet in Room 18. All choir members are expected to wear concert attire which is a plain white top (no logos please) and dark pants. They may also wear a festive holiday hat. Following the short performance, the audience will be invited to join the Choir outside to sing some traditional holiday favourites and enjoy some hot chocolate courtesy of our Home and School! Thank you in advance for your support of our choir!!
FOCUS ON MANNERS
We are having to remind students to always say, "Please" and "Thank You" when at school and to always be polite and respectful. We have noticed that these responses are not as automatic as they should be. Parents, you can help us by working together and reinforcing these core values at home as well.
There is a workorder in to repair the locks on the Kindergarten gates by Room 23. Please use caution when dropping students off and keep the gates closed as much as possible. With all the doors being locked during the day, there is much more foot traffic cutting through the Kindergarten yard.
See the Classroom Web Pages link for 'strategies' you can use at home to help your child with reading.
