February Happenings

We are fast approaching Valentines Day which means the school is hosting our annual Food Bank collection week.  Food Bank donation boxes will be in the classroom and around the school all next week.

As mentioned previously, the Primaries will have their Valentines Day party on Wednesday, Feb. 13th from 2-3.  This will be the time when students can open their mail-bags and have some treats.

For the Intermediates, the Grade 7s will be hosing their annual “Hungry Hearts” dance in the gym, so our plans are now adjusted so we can participate in the dance.  We will have time right after lunch to open our mail-bags, share some treats in the class, then join the dance for the remainder of the afternoon. The dance is a students-only event.

Monday, February 18th is the Family Day holiday, so there is no school that day.

Thursday, February  21st is the Grade 7 drinks sale, so if your child might like to purchase a drink, be sure to pack a Toonie in their lunch!

Portfolio Meetings are February 25th through March 4th.  Please email Shannon ASAP with your first and second choice of meeting dates and times so we can fit everyone in.  Programming will resume on Tuesday, March 5th.

A friendly reminder to set aside the morning of Tuesday, March 26th for our class photo.  I will have our time for the photo closer to the date.

There are two upcoming field trips planned for early March:  On Wednesday, March 6th will be Elephant & Piggie’s “We Are in a Play!” at Carousel Theatre, and on Thursday, March 7th will be Peter and The Wolf at the VSO.
