Grade 5 Immunizations
The FINAL round of Immunizations for grade 5 students are being held Monday, May 1, 2017. Our nurse informed us to remind parents that students should make sure that they continue to move their arm and take tylenol that evening if the site of their immunization is sore.
Traffic Safety: In front of our school is a 30 km per hour playground zone. Most of our students are dropped off by parents every morning and picked up after school. It can be crowded. We would like to remind everyone to not park to close to the patrol crosswalk this is a safety issue for them as it makes it unsafe to be able to operate properly. Please be patient as you come and go and if you are crossing the road, please set a good example for your child and use the patrol crosswalk. Our students are all precious! Let’s keep them all safe.
Curriculum Options are coming!
Students in each grade grouping will have the opportunity to learn curriculum in a manner of their choosing on:

The Showcase will be divided into Acts 1 & 2 with a brief intermission for students to have a bit of a break and Act 2 to be able to setup.
