Remembrance Day

Lest We Forget

 

Remembrance Day 2018 Full Program

 

This is a note to remind you that on Monday, November 12th, we will once again be taking time out to remember our veterans and their fallen comrades who gave up so much for the country they loved. We will be having one service for which all classes from grades 1-8 will be attending and participating. The service will begin at 10:00 am. All parents and community members are welcome to attend, but we ask that you kindly refrain from taking videos or photos of the students during the ceremony and please arrive early around 9:45 am to avoid disrupting the service.

We are asking that staff and children come to school dressed in dark bottoms, pants/skirts and white tops, shirts/blouses as St. Andrews’ way of showing our honour and respect to those who gave up their lives for us. Poppies will be distributed to all students on that day.

This year we are asking for a $1 donation for the War Veterans’ Poppy Fund. All funds raised go towards the care of our remaining veterans.

It is the generosity of Canadians that enables the Legion to ensure that our veterans and their dependants are cared for and treated with the respect that they deserve.

Thank you for taking the time to HELP US REMEMBER.

We hope to see many of you there.

Sincerely,

The Staff and Students of St. Andrews P.S.

Avoid Catching/Spreading the Flu

Flu Poster

Kids and Flu

The flu germs spread when people cough, sneeze or talk. The flu germs can also live on surfaces like toys, countertops, and door handles for up to eight hours.

Students can pass the flu germs to each other, to school staff and to family members before they show symptoms. Children under five, seniors and people in poor health are at greater risk of complications from flu.

Vaccination is the best protection against flu.  It takes 2 weeks for the vaccine to be fully effective so get it early.

Tips on staying healthy this flu Season:

  1. Get your flu shot early
  2. Wash your hands often
  3. Avoid touching face and eyes
  4. Cover your cough or sneeze
  5. Do not share drinking cups and utensils
  6. Disinfect common surfaces like door handles, hand railings, keyboards, cell phones and tablets.
