As the days and weather are getting colder and wetter, please ensure your child is prepared for being outside for at least 15 mins per day. This includes morning lineups before door opening, walking from school to church and/or gym, and when we are dismissing. The door opens at 8:30 a.m., or earlier, for students. However, there may be times when the doors will open a few minutes late due to staff meetings and classroom supervision needs. Please inform all pick-up and drop-off family members as many grandparents are unaware of the routines. If you are concerned about the doors not being opened on time, please call the office and DO NOT APPROACH, OR HARASS, THE STAFF ON DUTY TO OPEN THEM AS THE DOORS ARE CONTROLLED BY THE OFFICE. The best way to ensure that your child does not get cold or wet, is to ensure they dress with proper coats, rainwear, and footwear. Thank you for your understanding.

The Halloween Bash will be held on Friday, October 29th during school hours. The ticket order form went home last week. The Halloween Committee will be setting up the Halloween Bash in the gym for each class to take part in during their gym class. Students will have the opportunity to play carnival games, Halloween bingo and the famous lollipop pull. We are going to have plenty of prizes and a treat bag for everyone. Please remember this is a kids’ only event and no outside class treats are allowed. Thank you to all our sponsors, and our amazing Halloween Committee who have managed to organize a fun yet safe Halloween Bash for our students!
Also, we have decided to keep the raffle and the Halloween Bash separate. This year we will be doing a Black Friday Raffle that will go home on Friday, October 29th and the draw will be on Friday, November 26th. More details to come!

PLEASE NOTE! PARENT DRIVERS
If you plan on driving students to and/or from school events you must fill out a Volunteer Driver Form (Volunteer Driver Form) and provide a copy of your current driver’s license and insurance. Driver forms must be completed each year, so all previously signed forms are now void. Also, all drivers and non-family students MUST wear masks and declare if they are non-vaccinated to their riders’ parents, (as we do not want to increase exposure risks). Please only volunteer if you can communicate to the family that you are helping to drive in advance. Unfortunately, the bus is not always available for all events as many programs and grades overlap their needs for rides. Thank you for helping to ensure all students continue to stay safe!
