SHS Week Sept 22-28
Hurray! We made it through our first five-day week at Sturgeon Heights – and it was a great week! The sun shone for a couple of days and the students were able to get outside for some fresh air at recess.
The Cross Country Run in Gibbons ran smoothly and Sturgeon Heights’ students ran an impressive race! Congratulations to all who participated.
Our first fire drill for the year was held yesterday and boys and girls did well and made their way out of the school in a safe and efficient manner. We will continue with a couple more practices in the coming days.

It is held annually at the end of September in Canadian communities with students and staff being encouraged to wear an orange shirt to school that day.

Please see the link with information about Kids Plus Accident Insurance that all schools are to use for their respective websites, newletters, and/or social media. The main website at: http://kidsplus.ca will continue to be available for parents to purchase coverage, access claims forms and full plan information online.
**Attached is a flyer from Lunch Lady with details on the upcoming lunch for September 24th.
***Snack Shop is up and running. Snack Shop runs most school days, depending on volunteer availability. For those new to our school, Snack Shop may be used to “top off” your child’s lunch, in place of lunch, just for a treat – or not at all. It is totally optional. Volunteers are always in high demand. If you would like to volunteer please email Jody Greschuk at firstname.lastname@example.org or Jill Samuel at email@example.com These ladies will help with dates and set up training for you.
A price list for Snack Shop is attached.
Reminder that the office does not supply cutlery for student lunches. Snack Shop does have some on hand for 25 cents each. Best idea, if possible, is to please send cutlery with your children if they need it to eat their lunch with.
Have a good weekend. The boys and girls are excited to be outside in the “snow!”
