Here are some dates to mark in your calendar:
Friday, September 18 – Individual Student Photos (Students must wear their uniforms + a smile!)
This one is tricky for 2 reasons. First of all, it falls on a Friday which is a day that our part time Kindies are not normally at school. Unfortunately, this is the date that was set up for our school. If your child is a part time Kindie you have two options.
- You can bring them (in their uniform) first thing on Friday and stay until their picture is taken. Kindergarten is always one of the first classes called.
- You can bring them (in their uniform) first thing on picture retake day, Thursday, October 15th.
It’s also tricky since children would usually come to school in their Knights t-shirts on a Friday. So, this Friday will be an exception.
Please send your child to school in their uniform this Friday.
Wednesday, September – Toonies for Terry
We will talk a little about an inspirational Canadian figure, Terry Fox, who can teach us a lot about overcoming hardships. We will also do a short run around the gym in memory of the marathon he ran across Canada. Please feel free to send a toonie with your child in their home folder if you would like to donate to his cause.
Friday, September 25 – Knights Day
Monday, September 28 – Professional Development Day (no school)
Wednesday, September 30 – Orange Shirt Day
Children have the option to wear casual bottoms and an orange top on this day. If you don’t have an orange shirt, you can send your child in their uniform. In our classroom we will focus on the idea that every child matters and should feel safe and cared for in their school community.
