Tomorrow is Red and White Day. Feel free to wear something red or white or both, to help celebrate the 150th birthday of our country.
Tomorrow, Wednesday, June 28 is our field trip to High Park. Looks like the weather is going to cooperate. Remember to pack a lunch, towel to sit on and water bottle. Students should wear running shoes, hats and sunscreen.
Unfortunately it was too cold and wet to go to the splash pad today.
On Thursday, June 29, our last day of classes, it will be Red and White Day, to celebrate the 150th Canada day. You can wear anything red or white that day.
Report cards, now called the Communication of Learning, are going home Wednesday. There is a portion for you to fill out on the second page and return to school. Any families interested in speaking to me about your child’s progress can do so after school on Wednesday or Thursday, between 4-5 pm.
Our field trip day tomorrow looks like it is going to be a wet one and since we don’t want a repeat of our first trip we have post-phoned it until next Wednesday. New forms will have to be signed and will go home tomorrow. If you have a few extra minutes, please come into school early and sign it tomorrow. Sorry for any inconvenience.
This is the last week of our Tumpane Snack Program. Families will be responsible for sending healthy snacks to school with their families between June 19, 2017 and June 29, 2017. Some healthy snack suggestions include fruits, vegetables, crackers and cheese or yogurt. Please remember to keep sending water bottles for our really hot weather.
Our class will be going to the local community Splash Pad on Tuesday, June 27, 2017. No permission forms are required, as all students have already signed the walking trip form. This trip is free. We will be there for the morning, weather pending. If it rains we will try to reschedule for June 28, 2017. More information about what to bring will go home shortly. Parent volunteers are always welcome.
Just a reminder about our concert tomorrow afternoon at 1:30 p.m. Please let me know if you would like to bring any refreshments for our party afterwards.
