September Dates

Here are some dates to add to your calendar for September:

September 16 – Picture Day

Please note that if your child is a part time student you have the option of bringing them for their photo as early as 8:45.  Just buzz the office and they will let you in and show you where to go.  You can also wait until retake day later in the school year.

September 17 – Knight Day

September 22 – Terry Fox Day

We will learn a bit about this Canadian hero and will do a short run in his memory.  Families are encouraged to send a toonie to school on this day.  All proceeds will be donated towards Cancer research, a cause dear to my heart.

September 24 – Knight Day

September 29 – Orange Shirt Day

September 30 – Truth and Reconciliation Day – No School

October 1 – Pro D

Bible Memory Verses

Today I sent home your child’s first memory verse:

Aa = “All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God”

We will practise this verse together each day at school but ask that you also review this verse with your child throughout the week.  On Wednesday of next week your child will be tested on it.  We have a grade 12 helper (Halle) who will listen to the children individually recite their verse each week.

Please Note: We won’t worry about memorizing the reference (Eg. Romans 3:23), just the verse itself.

It might be a great idea to find a special spot (like a binder or folder) to collect these weekly verses. This is a great opportunity for your child to begin to hide God’s word in their heart!  Thanks for your home support!
