Smoothie Day Last Week
Smoothie Day last week was a huge hit! Smoothie Day at Sir Isaac Brock is in a few more days! We used a Smoothie Bike to make two (2) kinds of smoothies. First, we blended the ingredients using a special bike, and then we taste-tested the smoothies to see which one we liked better. The recipe is attached, so please be sure to ask your child which smoothie he/she liked best. And, it’s a great way to strike up a conversation about ways your family can eat more vegetables and fruits every day!
Winter holidays start on Monday, December 23rd, 2019 until Friday, January 3rd, 2020. We all return to school on Monday, January 6th! Have a safe and happy holiday!
Don’t Forget Footwear
Please send along a pair of shoes that can be left at school for indoor wear during the winter months. Students are discouraged from wearing the same footwear outdoors and in the classroom during the winter. Snow melting off of boots or shoes creates a slip hazard and mess in the classrooms.
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. In the winter it is important children come to school prepared for the cold. Boots, mittens or gloves, and hats should be worn to school and it is a good idea to provide extra mittens, socks, etc. in the event they are needed.
This is an important reminder to all parents and guardians, that we are a PEANUT AND NUT SAFE school. Sir Isaac Brock School has several students who have severe, life-threatening allergic reactions to peanuts and nuts. As a result, we urge you to not send any and all products that include peanuts and nuts. (Such items include, but are not limited to, peanut butter, peanut butter cookies, Nutella, whole nuts of any kind, granola bars that contain peanuts and / or nuts, etc.). It is recognized that what we are asking for is not an easy task, but please support us in making our school safe for everyone. By working together, we can help ensure the safety of all our children.
Early Holiday or Absent
With the holidays approaching quickly, we still need to ensure safe arrival to school, and to eliminate delays in phone calls in getting in touch with parents. We ask that you please keep us informed if your child will be absent due to illness, an appointment, vacation plans, etc. Please continue to use the School Messenger app on your phones or desktop. We thank you for cooperation!
