November News

The fall is the perfect season to go out for a walk/run. We were very pleased to have raised close to $500 to donate to Cancer research through our Toonies for Terry walk/run campaign. Mme Rovas and her running colleagues kicked off the kilometre club. Many students and staff started their school days off with a healthy run together. Momentum is starting to build for our Eco schools Walk to School Wednesdays which ends every month with Mme Bangma’s Walking School bus picking students up from the neighbourhood to the south and north. We hope that many more families will join us by walking to school at least one day a week. This will decrease the cars on the roads around our school and alleviate the congestion in our busy parking lot.

Our Cross Country Team made an amazing showing at the three meets. Special mention goes out to our grade 4/5 students: Anneli, Jaelyn, Hunter, Matthew and Isaac who put forth an outstanding effort in representing our school at the City Championships. Honourable mention to Maya in Grade 3 who was the gold medalist at the Conference Finals. All of the athletes would like to thank Ms. Vucinich for organizing the team, their coaches and many parent volunteers.

October’s costume spirit day was another big hit! Students and staff showed off their unique creations to an audience of parents, guardians and relatives that lined the parade route in our concourse. Families who will be trick or treating are reminded to carefully review the Halloween Safety Tips.

A big thank you goes out to Blanka Krajc and Mr. Gard along with the many parent volunteers who organized and worked at our Book Fair. It was a huge success!! Sales totalled $9364.50 which meant we were able to select $870 of product to replenish classroom libraries and enhance student programming. Thank you!!

The SAB Winter Bazaar is approaching. Check the Council Corner for more information. The Bazaar committee has been hard at work preparing for the big day on Saturday November 23 – hope to see you there!!

Yours in partnership,
