February Fun!

How did it get to be FEBRUARY so quickly? And a Leap Year at that?! February is the month of Groundhogs, Valentines, Portfolios, and special school events. It is also Black History Month. And there is Pink Shirt Day, and Family Day. It’s a good thing it’s a leap year so we have an extra day to accomplish everything!

We will celebrate all these good things with an afternoon of games and music, and by sharing Friendship Fruit Salad, on the last day of classes before Portfolios start: Friday, February 9th and Tuesday, February 13th. On that day, please send along a small container of washed and chopped fruit to toss into the mix. We are sure to be surprised and delighted with whatever arrives! Feel free to send along some other seasonal treats for classmates if you wish.

The main school has 2pm dismissal days on February 7 & 8 next week, but we do not. Instead, we will have no in-person classes from February 15th to March 1st due to the second Portfolio meetings.

Movie Night is on Friday!  Come as a family to watch “Luca” in the school gym on Friday, February 2nd. Doors open at 6:00 pm and the movie starts at 6:30. Pizza and other goodies for sale. Floor seating! Bring your own blanket or cushion. Please see the Beaconsfield Banter newsletter you will have received from the school office for information about this, and Pink Shirt Day, etc.

September Intentions: If you haven’t already done so, please be in touch with me to let me know if it is your intension to have your child stay in our program in September. I have a very long waiting list, so this information is very helpful. Next year dates for the cohorts will be the same as this year: G K-3 on Mondays and Tuesdays and G4-7 on Thursdays and Fridays, with Wednesdays for online meetings, etc.
