October Dates

Can you believe that we are in the last week of September already?  I’m always a bit sad at this time of year to be moving away from summer (my favourite season – sigh) but…can’t help but also be thrilled as I watch your children adjusting to all the new routines and expectations of their new school environment.  They are doing so well.  I’m proud of each and every one!

Here are some dates to keep in mind as we look ahead to next month:

Tuesday, October 3 – Parent SWR information session 3:15-4:15.  Strongly recommended!  Childcare is available.  Please sign up on the paper outside of our classroom door if you will be needing childcare.

Wednesday, October 3 – WITS Assembly (K-3).  We will learn some strategies for handling conflict (W=walk away, I=Ignore, T=talk about it, S=seek help).

Monday, October 9 – No school (Thanksgiving)

Tuesday, October 10 – No school (Pro D)

Monday, October 16 – Picture Day (full dress uniform required)

Knight Day

Just a quick reminder that tomorrow (last Wednesday of the month) is Knight Day.  That means your child may wear their red knight t-shirt with a pair of casual bottoms (jeans etc.).  If you’d rather send your child in their uniform that is an option as well.  See you tomorrow!
