    • follow all of the travel guidelines put in place federally – please click here for the latest information
    • if you would like your child to wear a mask at school, please ensure they bring at least one mask with them to school each day

  • Special Request - Very Important!

    We are very excited to let you know that with part of our Zumbathon monies from our 2020-2021 campaign, we have purchased four commercial picnic tables for our school yard.  We would like to install the tables on Saturday, April 9th, in conjunction with our Work Bee, but we need your help.   We will require at least six strong adults to help with this project, as the tables are very heavy and need to be secured to the concrete around the basketball courts.  If you are able to help, please send an email to the Principal by clicking here.  The work will begin at 9:00am on April 9th.  Thank you for your assistance with this project, as we know that these tables will be very well used.

  • Work Bee - April 9th

    The next Work Bee will take place at the school on Saturday, April 9th from 9:00am – 2:00pm. This is a great way for parents to accumulate 5 hours towards their Parent Participation commitment.  Please complete a daily health check before coming to the Work Bee, and stay home if you are feeling unwell.  Please also bring gloves for both inside and outside work, as well as any small, cordless gardening tools you are able to bring.  Your work around the school, both inside and outside, is much appreciated.

  • REC Meeting - April 6th

    The next meeting of the Regional Education Committee (REC) will be held in person at the school on Wednesday, April 6th.  The meeting will begin at 6:30pm, and the agenda will be posted on the school’s website on Monday, April 4th.  If you are interested in attending the meeting, please send an email to the Chairperson, Tasha Mijinke, by clicking here.   

  • Next Early Dismissal Day - April 6th

    Our next early dismissal day for our monthly staff meeting will take place on Wednesday, April 6th.  As always, the students should bring a snack and lunch to school that day, and they will be dismissed at 12:55pm.

  • Upcoming Dates To Be Aware Of

    It is hard to believe, but the Easter weekend will be upon us very soon.  This is just a reminder that there is no school on Good Friday, April 15th, or on Easter Monday, April 18th.

  • Zumbathon - May 13, 2022

    Our biggest fundraiser of the year, Zumbation 2022, is coming up on Friday, May 13th!  Information packages, including pledge sheets and envelopes were sent home to each family this past week.  This year we are staying with last year’s theme and continuing to raise money to create outdoor learning and fun spaces at our school.  (Some more items that were bought with last year’s funds will soon be installed!  Keep your eyes open for these to be unveiled shortly).

    We encourage all students to ask for pledges in COVID-safe ways:  by phone, video calling and emails, and encourage potential donors to donate online.  Please see the information package for more details.

    We will have some great prizes that can be won, which will be announced in the coming month.  If you would like to donate a prize, please contact Jasmin Laflamme by clicking here.  Thank you for your consideration!


    Together we can raise $25,000!
