Feb. 8th - Feb. 10th

The makeup lesson at Trico for our group of students who missed one of their lessons will be held at Trico Centre on Tuesday, February 9th from 10:15-11:15 am. Those students must have their swimming suits and towels at school on that day.


On Wednesday, February 10th Kindergarten Room 1A will be hosting Scientists in School. This will be a great learning experience for Mme Kayleigh and her students.


Teachers’ Convention and Family Day weekend is upon us. Thursday, February 11th, Friday, February 12th, and Monday, February 15th are non-school day for students.


This is the last call for the current Lost and Found items. Our lost and found table will be cleared and the clothing sent to those in need on Wednesday, February 10th.


We are still in need of extra clothing for those times when accidents occur for our students. We are particularly in need of small (size 5 or 6) and large (size 8 or 9) pants for both boys and girls. If you have any pants that your children have outgrown please send those in and we will put them to good use.


During Teachers’ Convention the old curtain divider in our gym that stopped operating several months ago will be removed. The new replacement gym divider will be installed during Spring Break from March 21st to March 25th. We are very excited about having this replaced because it will then allow the gym to be divided into two areas which facilities two different activities during Reveille-Matin and gym classes.


Please see a Measles Reminder English and French, from Alberta Health Services' Medical Officers of Health regarding the importance of measles immunization.


Have a great weekend and a wonderful Teachers’ Convention/Family Day long weekend next weekend with your families!! We thank you for your ongoing support!!
