School Plan for Student Success

Are you interested in how the school plans school staffing and organization for the 2011/12 school year? Join us in the library at 4pm on Tuesday, April 5th, for a presentation and a look at different scenarios. The administration and School Planning Council plans to make the resource management as transparent as possible. Childcare is available.

School Planning Council

We are looking for an additional parent to assist with the work of the School Planning Council. Please email if you’d like any information, or call the school to talk to Steve Fleck.

Movie Night April 15th

Come and join us for Despicable Me! Doors open at 6:30pm, movie at 7pm, in the multi-purpose room. Admission by donation.

Soap Update

Due to health concerns, soap is now going to be constantly stocked in the washrooms. Mr. Fleck and Mr. Watt toured the classrooms giving information about soap etiquette – ask your child for info!

Next Year’s PAC Leadership

There are only a few short months until the end of the school year. Elections for the PAC executive will be held in June – if you have any interest in running, this would be a good time to talk to current members to find out more.

Purdy’s Fundraiser

Thanks for your support of the school during the Purdy’s fundraiser! We have raised over $1000, and families should expect their order the week of April 12.  Please contact the PAC if you have any concerns about your child bringing the order home.

Support the School with Pizza

Domino Pizza’s has an ongoing fundraising program. Code 307512 can be used to get 1 medium 3 topping pizza and any bread side for $13.99 (+HST & delivery fee), and Domino’s Pizza will donate $2.50 to our fundraising account. Code 327612 can be used to get 2 medium 3 topping pizzas and any bread side for $23.99 (+HST & delivery fee), and Domino’s Pizza will donate $5.00 to our account.

Safety Concerns

Please don’t forget to call the school if your children are going to be absent. And please, please, please, stay out of the bus loop! This area is very active with our young children for most of the school day. The bus loop is for buses, emergency vehicles, and students requiring handicapped parking. In good news, we have seen a big improvement in the visitors’ parking lot – thank you for all your efforts!
