SHS Week Oct 30 - Nov 3
Hi Parents: We had our first Lockdown practice this afternoon and it ran quite smoothly. Your children’s safety is always our first concern! Digital Citizenship Week was very successful and students participated in lots of activities relating to their digital footprint. The latest newsletter, together with newsletters for November and December, just went out a few moments ago. Remember that the calendars are always tentative and sometimes changes do pop up.

**Halloween celebrations are just around the corner and we have many students with wonderful, creative ideas about what costumes to wear. It's important to remember that costumes which portray stereotypes about a specific group, culture or race can be hurtful.
While we’re confident our students wouldn’t intentionally try to offend their classmates or teachers, we need to be sensitive to all. Please remember that our school has children as young as 3 1⁄2 years old and we all need to be respectful and careful to not emphasize gore and horror in our dress up.
We also ask that your child's outfit not contain any type of weapon and that we can see your child's face at all times. This year we will continue to ask families to refrain from clown costumes due to historical community concerns.
Sturgeon Heights School is committed to providing a welcoming, caring, respectful and safe learning environment. It is important that celebrations being held at our schools can be enjoyed by everyone—please help us ensure Halloween is fun for all of our students!
***Please remember to deal with the bus pass information that was sent out this week, should you need to
Have a great weekend! Can you believe it will be November!!!
