November 2022 News
Just a short note to say THANKS FOR BEING AWESOME! We had our Celebration assembly October 31st and it was AWESOME! So much School Spirit in coming together and hearing the students cheer! Staff dancing and singing, getting a make over, slimed and sill string flying! And a concert by Mrs. Bulmer and Stacey K! We raised over $5000 for Terry Fox and Cancer research!
This year Progress reports will be available online. See the School Calendar for dates! This report is communication based on assessment in the first two months of school. They are an opportunity to check in on your child’s progress, to talk to the teacher and collaborate on a plan to support your child for learning as they work toward their First Term report card.
Keep reading with your child at home and looking for opportunities to practise math together. Have an older sibling read to their younger sibling, yourself or another family member.
Check out the Principal’s Blog for ideas of how to support your child at home – for instance in math – https://www.ugdsb.ca/tevans/2020/02/11/from-counting-to-times-tables/
Thanks and continue to:
Complete daily COVID screening. If your child is not well, please keep them at home. If your child will be absent – please call and report this to the attendance line! You can call the attendance line at any time and leave a message. This saves time for Mrs. Bulmer calling all of our absent students. 519 766 4544 x 100
Have your child check the weather and come dressed appropriately so we can get outside! (label their belongings please).
Important Dates (remember to check our calendar):
PICTURE RETAKES – Monday, November 7th in the morning
FRESH FROM THE FARM ORDERS – Delivery and Pick up November 15th – more details to follow!
