The Salvation Army will be joining us for chapel on November 27th to highlight our chapel theme of ” God built me to show His love through service to others.” As part of our chapel, we invite students to bring a monetary (for a kettle that will be brought in), clothing, and/or non-perishable food item donation.
The Scholastic Book Fair is coming October 21-26! Mark it on your calendars and get a jump on your Christmas shopping.
To help parents prepare, please note that choir members for this year’s Christmas presentation will need to have cut-off jean shorts (long shorts, not short-shorts, please!) and plain white T-shirts. If you have questions, please contact Ms. van Dijk – firstname.lastname@example.org.
Interest in after school care continues to increase! As of today, we have one remaining, full-time vacancy in our after school care program. As per Ministry guidelines, we are able to have 12 children enrolled in our after school care program for each child care worker. We are preparing a wait list for families interested in full-time spots, and have established a trigger-point for posting a position for an additional child care worker to open up more spots.
At this time, preference for available spots will be given to families who enrol in full-time spots. Drop-in spots ($30/day) are often available on short notice through the week; however, they are not guaranteed. Parents who wish to secure program availability for their children in after school care are encouraged to consider enrolling full-time ($250/month). Details regarding our after school care program can be found on our school website.
This year, we will be staggering Primary (K-3) and Intermediate (4-7) lunch hours. Recess times for K-7 will continue to be from 10:15-10:30am. Our building expansion project will require us to close access to the outdoor play area (basketball hoops) and field across our driveway at some point this year. Staggered lunch times will allow more play space for children on our playground and other play spaces around our building. This summer we completed the construction of a “Ga-Ga Pit” (also called Octoball), and we will be moving four of the basketball hoops to new locations behind the school gym. We hope that these new play spaces will serve our students in during the construction of our new facilities.
Primary Lunch will be from 11:30am-12:15pm. An additional (informal) recess time will be added in the afternoon, given the earlier lunch.
Intermediate Lunch will continue to be from 12-12:45pm.
