December Newsletter

Posted December 1, 2020

It is hard to believe that December is here already!   

Thank you to teachers, ECEs and families for participating in this year’s Parent/Guardian-Teacher Interviews.  While school-home communication is ongoing throughout the year, the November interviews were a great opportunity to connect with families, sharing how students are doing both in school and at home. 

We would also like to thank families for your continued efforts to screen your children on a daily basis for COVID-19 symptoms, as well as following the new drop-off and pick-up routines this year.  It has been amazing to watch even our youngest learners adapt to this year’s routines and the positive atmosphere that permeates the school.  

With New Year’s Eve just around the corner, we look forward to seeing everyone back at school on January 4, 2021 for a great start to the new calendar year.  2020 has been interesting, to say the least, but our school community continues to pull together to make the most of our current circumstances, modelling for our students flexibility, perseverance, and community.  

We wish you a wonderful holiday season and a great start to 2021!
