*We have had some lovely weather, but it is beginning to be a little cooler these past few days.
Most students are outside at some point every day. Please ensure your children have adequate
clothing with them.
**Keeping our school and students healthy:
Please continue to keep us informed if your child is affected by viral illnesses such as hand foot
mouth and lice. When we are adequately informed we are able to help prevent the spread of these
viruses throughout the school.
As flu season approaches please encourage children to consistently wash their hands. Students
who are experience a fever at home should not be sent to school.
*** We are looking forward to having two student teachers in the school, starting on Tuesday,
October 11th. Ms. LaRiviere will be joining us in Mrs. Cornet’s Kindergarten room and Ms.
Lastwika will be joining us in Ms. Loh’s Grade 2 classroom. We always enjoy having student
teachers in our school!
Happy Thanksgiving to all!
Hopefully you can relax and spend some time with your families!
