EJPS Week at a Glance (April 11-14)

Chers parents,

I am happy to share that our climbers are ready to be reopened for the spring. We will open the climbers on Tuesday, April 11th. Please take some time to chat about safe play on climbers with your child/children. Reminders such as “slides and poles are for going down not up”, “wait your turn”, “don’t push”, “watch where you are going” are all helpful to keep everyone safe. Additionally, we have a schedule we follow so that the climbers are not overcrowded. See below.

In other news, Officer Pettapiece will be visiting us on Tuesday to hold Bus Patrol Recruiting for Grade 4 & 5 students who will be our senior students next year. Permission forms and training information will go home with any interested students. We will be rescheduling our lockdown drill later in the spring and will let you know in advance before we do one. 

Also, thank you to Mme Roberts for organizing the Grade 6 Popcorn fundraiser. The grade 6s are learning all about supply and demand as well as reconciling orders. It’s quite the operation! The money will help reduce the cost of our Grade 6 camp. If you wish to have your child get a bag of prepackaged popcorn then please send $2 exact change over the next few Fridays. Thank you for your support!
