Welcome to the weekend!

Things you need to know:

·         FOR STUDENT SAFETY--Please ensure that when you have dropped off your child/ren in the mornings that you close the gates on your way out.  Due to the amount of traffic in our parking lots, students should not be dropped off in parking lots.  Thank you.

·         Our Lego Club started this week and was a huge hit.  If any families have some extra lego or duplo at home that they would like to donate, our club would be happy for the donations.  Thank you!

·         Reminder that the upcoming Primary (K-Gr. 4) skating dates are Tuesdays, February 13th and 27th from 1:00 – 2:30 pm for anyone who might like to ask for the afternoon off to help tie skates and volunteer.  Everyone going on the ice will have to wear a helmet and skates (including adults).  Thank you to our Parent Council for providing the transportation on these days and to the City of Stratford for allowing our students to skate for free.

·         A reminder that our Eco Team is continuing with “Wasteless Wednesday’s” throughout the new year.  Our school is doing well so far but we are aiming high and would love to have an almost completely wasteless week.   Let’s go Jags, you can do it!
