Next week (Dec.16 – 20) the book to film club is hosting a reading and viewing of The Grinch in the Library at lunch hour. On Monday at lunch the gr.K/1s are invited.  On Wednesday the gr. 2/3s are invited, the gr.4s on Thursday, and the gr.5/6s on Friday. We will be reading Dr. Seuss’ The Grinch and then watching the cartoon version.


Students are reminded that they are to use sticks to build only.  There should not be any sticks used for waving, hitting or running with them.  We don’t want anyone hurt.

Parking lot

Thank you to the parents and guardians for their cooperation in the parking.   Please continue to keeping the roundabout clear, bus lane clear, keeping the handicapped parking spots open for those with decals and not parking in the middle of the lanes.  We want to ensure safety and smooth entry/exit when dropping off and picking up the children.  Thank you to the volunteer student parking lot patrollers for their work.

Floor Hockey for Gr. 5/6

The Gr. 5/6 students practice on Tues and Thurs at lunch.  Thank you to Mr. Dion and Ms Vanessa for coaching.  Our next game is a home game on Tues afterschool against BRE.

Community Christmas Care

We are collecting non-perishable food items, treats, unwrapped new toys, gift cards for making up hampers for the Community Christmas Care.  This week is the last week for donating.  Thank in advance for your generosity.  Please see Ms Cho for a treat when you bring your item in.

Elf’s Workshop (Christmas Gift Sale) – Monday Dec 9

Students will have the opportunity to buy gifts for $1 each, for their immediate family, living in their household. We understand that family make-up is different for everyone. We ask that you set the expectation with your child so that they are not disappointed. Parents should send a maximum of $5, prior to the shopping event, to be collected by teachers. For example: If there are only 3 additional family member in your household, please only send $3.

Should there be additional gifts at the end of the day, students may have the opportunity to buy additional gifts at end of the shopping event. Cash for additional items will be collected at time of purchase. Please send a reusable bag with your child to take gifts home.  We will be accepting donation items up until Friday Dec 6. Items can be left in the office at the school.

Should you be interested in volunteering for the funnest day of the year, please contact Roz at roslynsemjanovs@gmail.com
