Our Grade 1 students will be engaged in learning with Teachers’ Pet presenters on Thursday, September 29th. They are looking forward to the exciting experience of Creating Color!


Also on Thursday, September 29th at 1:00 p.m. we will be participating in a Terry Fox Assembly and Run/Walk. Students will wear an “I am running for” sticker identifying either someone important to them who has had or is currently fighting cancer, or Terry Fox himself, to gain a better understanding of how cancer impacts many lives. Students will be collecting “Toonies for Terry.” Monies raised will support finding a cure and improving the lives of many. All parents are welcome to join in our run/walk!!


We invite our Grade 4 Parents to the orientation meeting for their children’s off-site trip to the Royal Tyrrell Museum in Drumheller in the Learning Commons/Library on Thursday, September 29th at 5:00 p.m. Important information and forms will be provided regarding this amazing off-site activity.

A hand-out with everything you need to know will come home with your child. Registered by Sept. 30th, 2016 as the first order deadline is October 9th (registration is required). Unfamiliar with the program? View the Healthy Hunger introductory video.
