OPEN HOUSE TONIGHT

OPEN HOUSE TONIGHT at 6 PM: Parents come out and see our new additions to the school. We have new modular classrooms and we have changed the rooms for the Kindergarten and the ESC program. While you are here, take the opportunity to meet with your children's teacher(s) and ask them some questions. We are keeping this to 1 hour (since our teachers have already put in a a long day). Also, take a few minutes to volunteer for some of the events we have planned for the school. See you there!

Upcoming School Dance


Last year's dance was such a success, the School Council has decided to throw one again! The Cake Walk had huge support and we are hoping that it will again this year. We are hoping to have some idea of how many cakes to expect so please let Natalie Ball know at natnjeff@hotmail.com  if you are planning to bring a cake.

A Cake Walk is A Silent Auction of YOUR donated cakes (homemade or store bought) at the Dance which will raise money for helping the school. Funds raised will be used as prizes for the Accelerated Reading program instead of raffled off for classrooms like last year. 


Come as a family and have fun.
Get to know your children’s friends.
