Reminders for this week (wk 10)

Welcome back everyone. I hope that every family had a restful break. Please note the following reminders for this week:

On Thursday (October 31st) the elementary school will celebrate Halloween. Students may wear their school-appropriate costumes to school (please – no weapons).

Friday (November 1st) is swimming day for 2EH. Please make sure they bring their swim bag on Friday or before.

Friday is also a school spirit day, Penguin Dress Up Day. Students are encouraged to come to school dressed in black and white.

A gentle reminder that our class is nut-free, if you are sending any birthday treats please ensure they contain no nuts so they can be shared by all.

Have a lovely week.

Enjoy your break

We have made it through 9 weeks of school!
We have been busy creating a kind, inquisitive and supportive culture in our class. Thank you for your support.
Enjoy your break and travel safely. Please take some pics and send them in with your child so we can share our experiences.


Health Screening Note from the Health Office

2EH screening will be Monday 12:45

Elementary School Health Screening Starts October 14h: Healthy Children Learn Better!

This consists of height/weight, vision and hearing testing. If your child wears glasses, please make sure they have them at school the day of screening. Students who are absent when their classes are scheduled will be individually screened at a later date. In cases where referral is needed, a letter will be email to the parents the student. It will also include a form with the student’s test results for the physician or other follow-up care provider to fill out. These forms should be completed and then returned to the school health office once the student has been seen.

If parents do not wish to have their children screened, they should notify the Health Office prior to the scheduled date of screening. Health screening is done privately and the results will be kept in your child’s school health record. The purpose of this screening program is to address the need to reduce the illness and associated academic failure from vision and/or hearing defects through early detection, referral and intervention, to give you information about your child’s health and well-being, and to increase community awareness of healthy eating and active living.
