A few bits for the week...

  • On September 28, there will be no school for students. Our staff will be participating in a professional development day (Pro D Day) focused on Indigenous Education.
  • On September 30, our school will participate in Orange Shirt Day. Anyone who wishes to may wear an orange shirt as we remember the message "Every Child Matters" and the ongoing impacts of residential schools. A short video about the history of Orange Shirt Day can be found here, shared by the Orange Shirt Day founder, Phyllis Webstad:
  • A field trip permission form went home this week for Kindergarten Safety Orientation. This is a quick zip around the neighbourhood so the littles can learn about school bus safety
  • Picture Day is on October 9. Lifetouch photography also has increased safety protocols in response to COVID-19 and will be ready to capture those smiling faces from a safe distance. Kindergarten photos are usually taken first thing in the morning. 
  • Meet the Teacher Night is taking a virtual turn. I'll get back you on what that'll look like for us.
  • Sharing next week is Charlie on Tuesday, Chelsea on Wednesday, Connor on Thursday, and Emily on Friday.

Have a great weekend!
