 Caring, Kind, Friendly and Safe…

Dear Parents/Guardians,

Popcorn Day and Spirit Wear/School Colours Day

Monday is Popcorn Day.  Only a loonie for a bag.  Also, wear your spirit wear/school colours (blue/white).

Multicultural Days

We are planning for our annual Multicultural days on Th and Fri coming up.  Over the next few weeks, the students will be learning about all the different cultures represented at our school.  We would like to highlight the talent at our school by having cultural performances on the 5th and cultural activities and sharing cultural finger foods on the afternoon of the 6th.  If you are able to perform, run an activity station or contribute food, please fill in the attached form and return to the office ASAP.  Everyone is invited to wear cultural regalia on Fri.

A Book for Every Child

February’s Book for Every Child program was for the students of Mr. Parker and Mme. Garlock.

Reusable Shopping Bag Donation Drive

Starting now Ms. Pender’s grade 1/2 class is collecting your old, unused and forgotten reusable shopping bags. Look through your homes, ask parents and guardians! Please bring any and all donations to the office, Mr. Blumel or Ms. Pender ASAP. Thank you.

Yesterday, we had an away game against GHE afterschool. We will end the season with a jamboree with all school at DRMS on Tus, Mar 3rd. Please not that this date has been changed. Thank you to Mr. Parker, Mr. Dion and Mr. Blumel for coaching.  Practices are on Mon and Wed at lunch.
