Remembrance Day – On Thursday, November 11th, the teacher’s will be acknowledging Remembrance Day in their own class.
Gently Used Uniforms – Please contact the school offices if your child needs some complimentary gently used uniform pieces.
Christmas Food Drive/Mittens, Hats, Scarf and Sock Donations – Each year we collect hats, mittens, scarves and socks and we give them to an organization who distributes them to people in need. This year we are asking any donations to be put in a Ziploc bag. We are asking donations and food donations to be dropped of at Trinity Pentecostal Church (D.E.P.S/D.A.S.S.) on the west side of the building. There is a labelled box outside of the building. Our Christmas Food Drive and donations will start on Wednesday, December 1st and end on Wednesday, December 15th.
Celebration of Christmas – In keeping with our Holiday Concert Tradition, G.B.M.S & D.E.P.S. classes will be presenting a virtual holiday themed presentation on Friday, December 10th, 2021.
Unfortunately, we will not be having our annual Skating Party due to the pandemic. However, we are going to offer a complimentary pizza party for students in Casa 2 to Grade 12. Legislation does not allow us to serve younger licensed classes. Please note that our schools will be closed at 1:00 p.m. sharp on Friday, December 17th and our first day back to school will be on Monday, January 3rd.
Our virtual Discovery Night/Science Fair was a big success! Our teachers and students worked very hard from Casa 1 to Grade 12 on their presentations. Well done everyone!
Attached, please find an updated Academic Calendar for your convenience.
The winter weather is upon us. Please remember to provide your children with the necessary outdoor clothing for recess. The children will continue to go outside daily as weather permits. Along with a warm coat, snow pants and boots, please make sure your children have hats, scarves, and mitts! Please make sure everything is labelled with your child’s name. Thank you!
Thank you to all our parents for their continued support.
Until next time………
