Just a few weekly reminders…
Thursday, October 24th
- Bus Driver Appreciation Day
Pizza Days Start Monday, October 21st
Yay! It’s pizza time! Starting Monday, October 21st, Pizza Days begin every Monday. Each slice is $2, and there is a choice of either cheese pizza or pepperoni pizza. Like last year, pizza orders and money must be handed in to the teachers by 9:00 a.m. on Pizza Days. This allows us time to place the order with the pizza company, and make the necessary preparations. No exceptions! We trust you understand and will help us with this time frame.
Proper Clothing for Cooler Temperatures
Time spent outdoors is an integral part of the school day. Children need fresh air and exercise and time spent outside affords students an opportunity to break free from the structure of the classroom. With the changing temperatures, it is important children come to school prepared for whatever the weather might bring for the day – whether it’s a heavy sweater, or a jackets, rain boots, winter jackets, hats, gloves, etc. Please ensure your child has the proper clothing to be outside at recess.
In the morning, our bell time is 8:15 am. Students must enter the school through the proper doors (Kindergarten gated area for Kindergarten students; back primary doors for Primary students; and back junior doors for Junior students). Please note that if students enter through the front doors, they will need a late slip from the office to get into class. This means that they did not get to school on time to enter through the proper doors, and they will be considered late. Lates and absences are recorded on the report cards. When students reach a threshold of lates and absences, the matter is referred to our School Social Worker. As a result, we encourage students to arrive on time. Your cooperation is greatly appreciated.
REMINDER – Attendance Reporting by Parents
Please note that families at all HWDSB schools must use the SafeArrival system to report absences. Please report your child’s absence by using the website go.schoolmessenger.ca, by using the School Messenger mobile app for Apple and Google phones, or by calling 844-506-4350. We have more detailed information on our school website and on the HWDSB website at www.hwdsb.on.ca. Your cooperation in keeping us informed by using this attendance system is appreciated.

In the meantime, I hope you all have a wonderful week!
