Tomorrow our school will be hosting its annual Chinese New Year Celebration to mark the start of the Year of the Rooster. Our day begins with Mass hosted by Archbishop Miller in the church at 9:00 a.m. After Mass there will be a celebration in the gymnasium and students will be dismissed around noon. You are welcome to attend tomorrow’s festivities!
Here are some additional reminders for tomorrow:
- planners do not need to be brought to school
- send a snack with your child for recess
- your child can wear Chinese clothing/traditional costume OR a sweater/shirt in red, pink, yellow, gold or royal blue
Happy New Year!
Here is a breakdown of the activities happening in our school tomorrow:
- Pyjama Day – Free. Students are free to wear their pyjamas, bathrobes and slippers. They are also welcome to bring a stuffed animal to school.
- Hot Chocolate Sale – $1/$2. Grade 2 classes will be selling hot chocolate tomorrow to raise money for Chalice. Hot chocolate is $1 and hot chocolate with a bag of toppings will cost $2. 2z students each have a job for tomorrow and are very excited to raise money for a good cause!
- Popcorn and a Movie – $2. Green Club will be hosting another popcorn and movie event at lunch recess. Proceeds will go to the School Garden.
Ms. Munro and I would like to thank you for your generosity in donating to our hot chocolate stand. We have enough supplies now and even received a cash donation. We appreciate you helping us, help others!
Just a reminder that school begins at 8:45 a.m. There is supervision in the gym from 8:30 a.m. so you are welcome to drop your child(ren) off early if you so wish. The second bell rings at 8:50 a.m. and any children who arrive after this time are considered late. Over the past few months there has been an increasing number of late arrivals and it has been really difficult to start our learning on time at 9:00 a.m. (ie: Spelling classes). The students and I try to unpack, check planners, read notices, collect homework and go over the schedule of the day all by 9:00 a.m. When your child comes late it impacts them and the rest of the class, so I kindly ask for your consideration in having your child brought to school on time. It would help things run smoother in the classroom. Thank you!
