Stop, Look and Listen!

Such a full and busy week! Thank you to all who send along goodies for our Hallowe’en parties last week. We also did some silly Science with Solutions and Mixtures. Ask your kids about this!  On Tuesday the Primary group had an assembly about Traffic Safety with VPD Constable Hooper. Ask you children about why we need to Stop! Look! And listen. To help reinforce this important safety information consider asking what they remember from this talk; and if they know how to tell their Left hand from their right. Also…do they know your address and phone number for use in an emergency?

This week and next we will focus on Remembrance Day. We do not ‘celebrate’ the day. Rather we spend time reflecting on how to solve problems in Peaceful Ways. And how to appreciate Canadian rights and responsibilities preserved through the service of others. We continue to plant over 120 tulip and daffodil bulbs which were a 75th Anniversary gift from the Dutch Government to approx. 400 BC classrooms.

The festival of Diwali is happening this week with Thursday November 4 being a special day for many in our community. Here are some links your family might enjoy exploring.  For general information:

Portfolio time is fast approaching: If you have not yet done so, please check the calendar on the Blog and send me your preference for Portfolio time. Allotment requests are also open now. There are extra copies of the Approved Vendors in the tote. Please don’t forget to include the cost of shipping, and to leave room in your spending for possible field trips in the Spring. It is helpful to make clear the connection to your child’s SLP as this will speed up the approval process significantly.

The waitlist for next year is now open. If you know folks who are interested in registering for next year, please encourage them to visit the Blog where they can learn more and find the application form as well. We do have a couple of spaces available for this year as well.
