As you are aware, we take great pride in the outdoor activities that we are able to offer our students.  It is Winter now, so we will be getting deep into snow activities like sledding and snowshoeing.

Outdoor activities require the right gear - snow pants, jackets, boots, caps, and mittens - items that keep us warm and dry.  Please note that all children need these items every day, not just on their PE day.   Please help us make the outdoor aspect of learning fun by ensuring children have the right gear.

Parents of children in KinderStart are asked to note that outdoor gear is also required for this group so please have them ready to go on Thursday, February 22, 2024.

We hope that you’ve all had a fun weekend.  As we start a new week of learning, please note that Monday, February 19th is Day 2 on the Instructional Schedule.

We extend feelings of gratitude for the warm wishes and bouquets of thanks sent our way during Teacher and Staff Appreciation Week.  The gifts were wonderful, the notes and cards memorable and the food delicious.  Your thoughts and good wishes bring positive synergy and re-energize all of us.  Thank you one and all!

Parents with students in Grade 3 and 4 will note that a skating session is set for 10:30 AM on Tuesday, February 20th, 2024. This session will go ahead as planned.

Parents with children in Kindergarten, Grade 1 and Grade 2 are advised that the first skating session for this group is now set for 10:30 AM on Tuesday, February 27th, 2024.  The missed skating session will be added to the end of the schedule rotation and we will let you know about the specific date and time. 

Skaters must be registered through Rycor and with fees paid and consent forms signed before they can go skating.  On each skating day, following the first attendance check at 8:30 AM and based on the number of consent forms received, decisions will be made about who is going skating and who stays back at school.  At that time, some staff will be assigned to supervise skating while some will be assigned to continue with instruction for those who stay back at the school.

Parents of children in Kindergarten and KinderStart are asked to note that Thursday, February 22 is set aside for this purpose.  There are no regular Kindergarten classes.  Parents of KinderStart students are reminded of the start and end times for sessions as provided in the meeting of January 22, 2024.

Tuesday, February 13th, 2024, is Canada's Agriculture Day!  As part of the celebrations, Agriculture in the Classroom Newfoundland and Labrador (AITC-NL) is hosting a trade show in our gymnasium with farmers, agriculture professionals and special guests.  Students will tour the booths and be provided exciting resources and lunch.  Grade 4, 5 and 6 students will start visiting booths at 8:45 AM after which students in Kindergarten to Grade 3 will have the opportunity to visit.

As mentioned above, AITC-NL is providing a complimentary lunch for all students and staff on Tuesday, February 13th.  The meal is made up of a chicken wrap, white milk or water and a pre packaged fruit snack.  If your child will not eat this meal, please provide a boxed lunch as food items through Rainbow Food Services are not available on Tuesday, February 13, 2024.

Parents with students in Grade 5 and 6 will note that a skating session is set for 10:30 AM on Tuesday, February 13th, 2024.  The session will go ahead as planned.  Students will visit the AITC-NL exhibits before they go and will be back to the school in time for lunch.

Wednesday, February 14th is Valentine’s Day so please wear something red!  If students are bringing paper Valentines for their classmates, please be sure to have one for every student in the class.

Paper Valentines are the only items that should be coming to school.  Provincial school food guidelines and food allergies present in our population do not permit snacks and food items for sharing.  Please do not send other items or toys.  We can accept financial donations to our breakfast program and in this way every child benefits.  A link posted HERE will take you to the Kids Eat Smart donation page.

February 14th is also Janeway Day in schools throughout Newfoundland and Labrador. We are accepting small financial donations for the Janeway Child Health Centre.  Please send along what you can to your child’s homeroom teacher.  Donations can also be made HERE.
