K3 concert and Safety Patrol

Dear Parents, Concert:  For those in K-3 we want to remind you of the concert this evening. You childs community will have communicated to you when you are to have your child at the school.

K-3 Parents: We Need Your Help!

Attention K-3 families: This Thursday evening we will be treated to a great winter concert. Ms. Tamara, our incredible music teacher, has worked really hard with the kids to prepare a fun concert. After the concert I would like to ask for all the parents help. All the instruments will need to be returned to the K5 music room and all the chairs will need to be stacked.

Just a friendly reminder to sign up as a lunch volunteer in the coming months. It’s a great opportunity to talk with other parents and to see your kids out playing at lunch! If everyone who participated in the lunch program volunteered once we would have enough volunteers for the year! We are currently short some days every week and it is disheartening to the core volunteers who take time out of their busy schedules every week to keep this fundraising going. The funds are essential to the programs, activities and materials that all students and teachers at Norma Rose … Continue reading LUNCH VOLUNTEERS NEEDED!

School back Monday / Cedar Pyjama Day

Happy New Year to all of you. Hard to believe it is almost time for the kids to get back to school. Just a reminder that, due to the unexpected and abrupt beginning of the holidays, the Cedar Community (Grade 3`s) will be having their Pyjama Day on Monday!! Dress your child in pyjamas, send their favorite book and blanket and pillow (if they wish). For those other communities that were to have pyjama day or camp out I will connect with the teachers and see if they will be re scheduled. Stay tuned!
