Dear Parents,

 

Praise God for His goodness. We have had a very good start to our school year. The students have been hard at work striving to complete all of the requirements of this first quarter.

 

The Awards Ceremony for the First Quarter is on Sunday, November 6, at 6:00 p.m. After the Awards Ceremony, there will be an ‘open house’ time in the Learning Centre to see a variety of students’ creations and assignments. Refreshments will be served as you peruse the displays. Please invite family and friends to come and join us as we celebrate and reward our students’ diligence.

The Energy Center is booked on Thursdays for November and March and the Arena is booked on Thursdays for December and January. In December, we will be playing broomball/hockey in the arena and in January we are skating. While they are on the ice, the students are required to wear a helmet. Please ensure that your children have a helmet that fits properly. The students will be outside for Gym on those days not in the Energy Centre or JJ Parr. If the weather is too wet or cold and space is available, we may go to the Energy Centre. Having said that, please ensure that your child is ready for indoor or outdoor gym as fall weather can be quite unpredictable. Also ensure that they are dressed warm enough for the weather if they are outdoors. It is getting cooler out, so if your child requires a “hoodie” for gym we have some in stock available for purchase. We are also outdoors for many of our breaks during the day.

 

Please note the students do need to be in full Phys. Ed. uniform for gym class. Non-marking running shoes are required when we are at the Energy Centre on Thursday afternoons. The students will have to carry them into the Energy Centre when they go, so they require a pair of shoes to wear there and back as well.

 

At the students request, we have split the students into teams again this year. Throughout the year we will be doing a variety of team challenges for them to earn points for their team, including dress up days. Our first dress up day is a “Wacky Hair Day”. We have asked the students to come to school on Thursday, November 10 with “wacky hair”.

 

It is that time of year again for our annual Christmas Bake Sale to raise funds for Student Convention. You will find a copy of the order form on our Facebook page. Order Forms have been sent home as well. Anyone wanting to volunteer their time with baking, decorating cookies, or packaging our baked goods, please contact the school office. Many hands make light work.

 

We would like to thank all the parents who are volunteering to help in various areas. You are such a blessing to the students and us. It really does help the school run more effectively and efficiently when we have volunteers. If you would like to schedule some time to volunteer or are available to do some things from home, please let us know.

 

Please continue to pray for the students and staff as the year progresses.

 

God bless you,

 

Lynda Amesmann
