Office update – October 25
October 25th, 2018
Just a reminder that on Friday, October 26 the school will be closed for students as there is a PD day. Our teachers will be learning about effective strategies when teaching math.
What a great week! Thank you for your continued support.
October 31 – Halloween
On October 31, students who are participating in Halloween may wear their costumes or dress in black and orange to school first thing in the morning. The students will participate in a parade. For the students who are not participating, we will be provided alternative programs in the library. We remind families that masks and toy weapons are not allowed at school. We also encourage accessories to be left at home as they are often forgotten at school.
Once again this year, the Pumpkin Patrol will be patrolling your school and community during the nights of Tuesday, October 30 and Wednesday, October 31. The Pumpkin Patrol will randomly visit the Waterloo Region District School Board facilities as well as be a watchful eye for any problems that may occur while the children are out “trick-or-treating.” The staff has experienced a reduction in vandalism at Board facilities as a result of this program. The program acts as a deterrent in decreasing the number of activities, damage to the schools and helps ensure increased safety to our children who may be out on the fun-filled evenings.
On November 1, we will be having our photo retake day.
