Please note the following:

Snow Day

Snow is in the forecast for Thursday.  The PTA class rep will contact you if the school is closed.  Please do NOT call the school.  School closure will also be reported on local radio stations: AM980, AM1320 and AM1470.

Report Cards

Report cards will be distributed on Wednesday in case school is closed due to snow.  Please check your child’s backpack for it.  If you have any questions or concerns, we will discuss it at your scheduled parent-teacher interview.

Show and tell

I have created a new schedule for Show and tell.  Please check the schedule below for your child’s turn.  Your child may bring something interesting such as a favourite toy, book or photo.  You can help your child prepare for his/her turn by practicing at home.  Students are expected to speak loud and clear and share at least 3 things about the show and tell item.  Please make sure you know what your child is bringing and that it is appropriate to share with the class.


An email recently went out regarding a case of lice in 1D.  I urge all parents to follow the instructions in the email and take the time to check your child’s head.  Please be diligent with this to prevent further spread in the classroom.


Just wanted to remind parents to please check and initial the planner daily so I know you have checked it.  Also, please keep the front pocket clear of old notices, so I know you have received and read notices that were sent home.
