Happy New Year and Welcome Back!

A couple of important things for this week:

  2. Silver Star ski trip registration is DUE TODAY online. Please call the school if your child is planning to go on the trip and you are having any difficulties registering them.
  3. Mrs. Langlois’ class cross country ski trip to Larch Hills for this Wednesday is cancelled. Information will be coming home today with your child.

Have a good week, and as always, please don’t hesitate to call the school if you have any questions.


December 17-21

It’s almost here… winter break!

We welcome to staff Ms. Dana McEwan. Ms. McEwan is teaching grade 1 and 2 (Division 4) for the remainder of the year. Welcome!!

The last day of school before the break is Friday December 21. Please remind your child to have a look at the lost and found to see if any of the found items might actually belong to them! We seem to have accumulated a number of clothing items as the weather is cooler in the mornings yet quite warm in the afternoons.

We hope you have a wonderful, restful, happy and healthy holiday with family and friends.

We look forward to seeing everyone when school opens again on January 7, 2019.

December 3-7

It’s here! The Winter Concert!

Our Winter Concert (“December Gifts”) will be held on Wednesday December 5, starting at 12:45 in the gym. Doors will open at 12:00.  Parking is always in short supply, so please try to car pool whenever possible. We can’t wait to show you what our students have been working on!

A link was sent out by email last week to all parents. The survey is asking for feedback on our recent parent/teacher/student conferences to set goals for learning. We would really appreciate it if you could take the time to fill out the survey. The district will be making decisions about how to proceed, based on the results of the survey. Thank you for participating!

Have a wonderful week and we hope to see you at our concert!


November 26-30

Last week was our first reporting period goal setting conference for most of our students. This was an opportunity to find out how your child is doing at school and to collaboratively identify a goal or goals specific to the child to help move them ahead in their learning.  As a principal, my own goal is to be aware of each student’s individual goal and to talk with them about their progress as often as possible. Keeping the goals in the forefront of each day will help students be successful.

Friday November 30 is hot lunch day. Our PAC president has been in contact with DeMilles and they are ensuring that if the Romaine lettuce caution is still in effect, there will be no romaine in the wraps. They will substitute another “green”. Thanks for looking after us!

WINTER CONCERT is approaching very quickly!! Our winter concert is Wednesday December 5 starting at 12:45. Doors will open at 12:00.  Save the date!

Have a spectacular week!
