Praying you are all able to enjoy this beautiful sunny Sunday afternoon. It’s hard to believe that there is only one more week left in the second quarter! With that in mind, please take note of the following announcements.

A Continued Reminder: Dressing for the Weather

As we all know, our winter weather can be unpredictable at times. Please ensure that your child comes to school each day fully equipped for outdoor play. “Must have” items include: A warm winter snow suit (this includes snow pants), winter boots, mittens/gloves (an extra pair or two tucked away in the school bag are strongly recommended), and a winter hat. A neck warmer or scarf are also very useful for keeping snow from going into jackets, and an extra pair or two of socks is not a bad idea, either! We stay indoors when it is raining, when the playground is too covered in ice, and when it is colder than -20 degrees Celsius. Otherwise, out we go for some much needed fresh air and movement. It is best to just assume your child will be going outside and have them come ready for that likelihood.

100th Day of School: 

This Tuesday, we will be celebrating 100 Days of school in Grade One and Two. Your child can bring in a collection of 100 items such as 100 Q-tips,  stickers, marker dots on a page, rubber bands, tooth picks, popcorn, hard beans, candy pieces, cheerios, paper clips, goldfish crackers or  dress up as someone 100 years old etc.

I am excited to see how this day will go!
