Outside there will be a weiner roast, a hayride, and many more exciting activities. Funds raised will go to benefit Muscular Dystrophy
**Our Remembrance Day assembly is quickly approaching. Once again this year, I would like to put together a slideshow showing how our Sturgeon Heights families are connected to our Canadian Armed Forces. In this slideshow I would like to include any student with a military connection - be it a parent, grandparent, great grandparent, aunt, uncle, etc. If your child would like to be a part of the slideshow please send in a photograph of your family member in military uniform (preferably 5x7 or 8x10). I will then take a picture of your child holding their photograph to be included in the slideshow - it's that easy! If your child is shy and would prefer
not to be in the slideshow, but you would still like to honor a military member, please send in a photograph and we’ll include it too! Please send in your photographs no later than Monday,November 6th. If your child was a part of this last year, I can use their photo from last year or take a new photo if they prefer! If you have any questions please contact me at the school @ 780-459-3990 or firstname.lastname@example.org Thanks. Amy Cornet
