Parking Lot Valets- As the weather turns more of you may choose to drive. There is still no parking in our lot but we do have Parking Valets who will be available in the morning to assist K and 1 students. Their job is to greet the little ones, help them out and take them to their line up. Many of our K and 1 students already know where to line up, but it is still nice to be greeted in the morning. 

OCTOBER PRINCIPAL'S MESSAGE

September has come and gone and what a busy month is was! Our students are settling in and really are doing a good job of getting into the routine of school. We have had Photo Day, Orange Shirt Day, a very wet Bus Evacuation Learning Session and our Welcome Back BBQ. Our soccer teams started and we were able to invite Gr. 5 and 6 students to play. Cross Country running began and is open to students in Gr. 3-6. If you are interested in this please see Mrs. MacIsaac, it's not too late to sign up. The first run is Thurs. Oct. 5th , 3:30 at FG Leary Elementary.  Choir has also started. Students in Gr. 2-6 are invited to come out, have some fun, sing some songs and get ready to perform! Choir practices are Mon. and Wed. 12:15-12:40 in Mrs. Fraser's room. ( The old music room)

Each month we focus on a certain Virtue as part of our Character Building Education and like to share that information with parents.. For the month of September our focus was Kindness. Students/staff were encouraged to find all kinds of creative ways to be kind to one another. For the month of October our virtue is Thankfulness. We live in a beautiful part of the world and have a great deal to be thankful for. We will be working together to help our students be thankful for what they have, even if it is a tough day. Did you nkow that that people who take the time to noice and reflect upon the things they're thankful for experience more positve emotions, feel more alive, sleep better, expres more compassion and kindness, and even have strong immune systems? So many benefits can come from being thankful and we are really looking forward to working with our school community on this virtue.

I received an email that had some great information that parents can use to help teach their children friendship skills and conflict resolutions skills. Here is the link. Please feel free to check it out. https://www.smore.com/hq2td-parent-flyer-october?ref=email-content#w-666...

We are all looking forward to October, a month of fall colours, turkeys, pumpkins, thankfulness and perhaps a costume or two too.

Please know my door is always open and I would be happy to hear from you if you have questions, concerns or just want to get to know me a little more. Happy Thanksgiving.

PARKING LOT INFORMATION

The parking lot is much smaller this year and is for Pick Up and Drop Off only. Please see detailed information under Announcements Tab- Parking Lot. We have 2 designated parking spaces for those with handicap tags. Any adult wishing to wait with their child will need to park on the side streets and walk. We will have Griffen Security helping us manage our parking lot. Parents/students are encouraged to walk or wheel to school or arrange for car pick up spots off of the school parking lot site. Thank you so much for your patience and help with this. We are under construction this year and will do our best to keep you up to date. Thank you for your cooperation.
