CELEBRATIONS

If parents wish to send something in to recognize their child’s birthday etc., they are encouraged to send in something non-edible (i.e. pencils, erasers, etc.) that can be shared by all. This is to keep all students safe due to the many student allergies. Please check with your child’s teacher if you have any further questions. Thank you!


A Gentle Reminder

Parents are reminded to please keep their child home from school if they are under the weather (sore throat, tummy upset, fever). This ensures that germs & viruses do not spread. Thank you for your co-operation!
