Rainy Weather

September 28th, 2023

Just another reminder that we play outside in the rain. I have a number of students with shorts on, no rain coats and no boots. It is raining! We have allowed the kids to stay inside today, but going forward, we will be outside unless it is pouring. Thank you for helping us keep your kids happy and dry!

Pumpkin Patch Field trip

September 28th, 2023

Tomorrow is our Pumpkin Patch field trip. We will be leaving the school at 11am and our time at the farm is 11:30-1:30. The weather looks favourable but we need to dress for the mud. Please have the children wear boots and bring a jacket with a hood just in case of rain. We will not be bringing umbrella’s. It is Orange Shirt Day so we are hoping to have lots of orange shirts represented. If you do not have an orange shirt, then please wear your Knight Shirt.

Please send a bag with your child’s name on it so that they can pack their pumpkin home!

I look forward to seeing some of you there tomorrow!

I will be sending an email to Grade 1 parents.

Fall Weather

September 25th, 2023

It seems that our Fall weather has quickly arrived on the scene. Just a reminder to send the students to school dressed for the weather. We do go outside to play rain or shine. Students whould bring a jacket and rain boots that they can change into when they go outside and then change back into their school shoes when they come in. This will help us keep our classroom clean and mud free. Thank you for helping us keep our students comfortable and our school clean!
