Weekly Reminder for Parents | Mar. 23, 2017

Student-led conferences:  It was great to see so many parents out over the past two days sharing in their children’s learning!  The Spanish book fair held during conferences was a resounding success with the school earning $250.00 worth of free books.  Thank you for your purchases. 

 

THANK YOU!  Teachers were extremely grateful for the lovely food prepared for them during student-led conferences.  Thank you so much for your generosity, particularly in being so thoughtful for those of us who have food allergies or preferences.  Your kindness is very much appreciated.  A special thanks to Marisa Norona for having organized this event time and again for our staff!

 

THANK YOU for your support of the WE club bake sale. Over $600.00 was raised in just under 4 hours.  Your support of this student-initiated event will go a long way in encouraging our students to continue with other community-minded ventures.  What a great way to learn!

 

THANK YOU for supporting the Dalhousie School bottle drive.  Many thanks to Carolyn Torhjelm for organizing this fundraiser.
