Our “One Book, One School” program is finished for this year. A huge thank you to the students that participated, and an even bigger thank you to the parents and staff that worked so hard to create such an amazing experience. Your efforts are VERY appreciated!!
As a final activity, participating students worked in their groups to create a 3-D scene of one of the events in the book. Each group represented a different chapter. Here are some great pictures of the amazing work that our students did. They only had one nutrition break to get the task done, so organization, perseverance and teamwork were certainly necessary.

Yesterday our students in the “One Book, One School” program had a great opportunity to do some orienteering with a volunteer from “Adventure Running Kids”.
Next week is the last week for our “One Book, One School” program. A HUGE thank you to the parent and staff volunteers who have worked so hard to create such a wonderful program for our students. You have created a memorable experience for the students, while also creating community within our school. Thank you so much!!
We continue to face many challenges with student drop-off in the mornings. Please remember that parents are not permitted in our school parking lot to drop students off. We simply do not have the space for cars to park or turn around. Our parking lot is for staff only, and we ask that you do not drive into the parking lot.
If you choose to drive your child to school, stopping and parking along Moore Ave is not permitted. This area is a No Stopping/No Parking area, and bylaw officers occasionally come around to monitor these areas. If you are parking or stopping there you could be ticketed. There are a few areas where parents can safely stop to drop their children off. These areas are on John St., and also on Allan St. Look for the signs on Allan St. and please use the areas that are designated for student drop off.
Student safety is of the utmost importance, and we ask that you consider the safety of all students when you drive your children to school.
A reminder that March 7 is a PD day and there will be no school for students.
March Break is the following week – March 10-14,
School resumes on Monday March 17.
