Good Morning,  Happy Monday!

Very sorry the software that we send these emails with was glitching out on Friday afternoon….therefore the delay of this…


Things you need to know:

·         A warm welcome to Mr. Bodkin, our acting Principal until Christmas.  Mrs. Marcy’s surgery was successful and she thanks everyone for their best wishes.

·         A huge thank you from Student Cabinet for the support the school community gave them with their popcorn sales.  The popcorn sale was so successful that they have decided to sell it every Thursday for the next few weeks.  So once again, it is peanut & gluten free and meets our healthy schools guidelines.  Student Cabinet is selling it for $1.50/bag and the flavour choices are:  white cheddar, butter & salt or kettle corn. 

·         Wasteless Wednesday:  The Eco Team will be taking another stab at Wasteless Wednesdays this week.  Last week—the day after Halloween—was maybe not the best day to start…lol!  So just a reminder that on Wednesday, if there is any garbage leftover with your child’s lunch it will “boomerang” home to help educate students as to their individual footprint on the environment.

·         Grade 8 Fundraiser.  The Grade 8 class is also doing an additional fundraiser to help cover the cost of their year end trip—it is outside of normal school fundraising and completely optional.  However, if you or family members are interested in ordering a special Thirty One Gift - medium utility tote please let the office know.  More information is attached.  The deadline for orders is November 10th.

·         Please wear BLUE on Tuesday, November 14th to recognize World Diabete’s Day.  Please join us in raising awareness and educating the whole school community about this disease and how it affects those who live with it on a daily basis.

·         Save the Date!  Our Fall Fundraiser pick up for Fresh from the Farm and To Bean or Not To Bean items will be Monday, November 27th.
