Week of February 6 - 10

 

Hi Kinder Families,

Last week, the children enjoyed their first experience at the Scholastic Book Fair! One lucky student even got to go home with a free book from a draw! The Kinders also did a fanstastic job leading the assembly with their Grade 6 Buddies; helping teach the whole school on ways to "Be The Light" to everyone around us. Thank you, parents, for helping your children practice at home, for the assembly! Last week also brought an extra treat, the snow! Thank you for making sure your children have been winter ready with their hats, scarves, gloves and boots! We hope you're all keeping warm! It's a short school week this coming week, please be sure to check the blog and school website to keep updated!
