New website feature – Principal’s Weekly Message to Teachers

As a PAC, we are excited to publish on this website the weekly message from the Principal to the teachers. This information is not parent-specific – it is written for TEACHERS – but is interesting and informative for parents as well.

November 15, 2010

Winter has finally arrived, and with it comes the promise of new challenges on our school grounds. As always, please remind our students to wear appropriate outside clothing, and to do their best to stay off muddy areas. Dan will continue to work with Property Maintenance to try and solve the problem of the muddy pathway that runs from the blacktop, past the corner of the field, to the tether balls.
Please use the “ice grippers” that are in the closet in the staff room. The parking lots are especially treacherous.
The small gully between the field and the school remains off limits, as does the steep hill on the west end of the school nearest the art room.
Please take any and all opportunities to reinforce the fact that snow stays on the ground. We will also reinforce this from the office.
Thanks for your support of the Volleyball Fun Day this past Friday. It was great to see so many smiling faces, and to see everyone come together on such short notice. Please mark your calendars for the next one on Thursday, Nov. 25, from 12:15-2:30 in the main gym.
Finally, please mark your calendars for the next Report Writer Workshop. It will take place on Friday, November 26 in Lab 2023. Rob the trainer (a great guy, I hear), asked me to pass along the message that anyone participating in the workshop will benefit by putting in a few hours practise on the program before then.

Have a funtastic week!
