Volunteers Needed!!

Attention Parents, Grandparents and Other Interested Helpers!

The Grade One teaching team is in need of some regular volunteers beginning after the Christmas break.  
Twice a week, for one hour at a time, our first graders are going to be combined in levelled literacy groups for some very targeted instruction and focused learning!  We are so excited about the possibilities of this new program but are in need of some adult volunteers to help work with small groups and assist with supervision during this time.  
If you are interested in helping out regularly or even once in a while, please respond via email to your child's teacher ASAP.

Help is required:
Mondays from 12:30pm-1:30pm (Please arrive 10 min. early to receive your instructions)
Thursdays from 8:50am-9:50am (Please arrive 10 min. early to receive your instructions)

Thank you so much!

It's the Busiest Time of the Year!

Welcome to December!  This is a busy month so I thought I’d send out a list of upcoming events!

*Just a heads up… we are in the midst of trying to plan a visit to The Gardens during the last week of school.  The Gardens is a seniors’ center near our school.  Our plan is to make Xmas cards to brighten spirits, to read to some of the residents and to perform our Xmas concert songs.  I’ll let you know ASAP if this works out, as I will need parent drivers and supervisors to come along.

December 7
School Evening Event: Caroling in the Gym at 6:30pm

December 8
Hot Lunch Order Deadline

December 12
12:25pm Christmas Concert Dress Rehearsal:  Each family gets two tickets to the evening concert.  This rehearsal is open to anyone that wasn’t able to get a ticket but would like to see our concert!
6:30pm  Christmas Concert 
This year the Grade 1 students will be performing December 12 at the College Drive Church.  The concert begins at 6:30pm but performers should be there a half hour prior to show time.  Each FAMILY will receive two tickets, as seating is limited.  If you are aware that your child will not be attending that evening please make a note in your child’s agenda and return your tickets if you receive any.  They will be given to another family in need.
