New Abstract Art on our Bulletin Board!

May 16th, 2024

Your children have been busy learning about abstract art using crayon resist and watercolor painting.  I think they did a fabulous job!  They also spent some time writing down answers to questions about themselves.  The students had such great and interesting ideas!  Come in a take a look at their wonderful art and learn more about your child and their peers!

Shorts and Sandals

May 14th, 2024

As we welcome the arrival of warmer weather, we kindly remind everyone that on Friday Knight’s Day and casual field trip days, it’s important to ensure that casual shorts meet the school’s dress code. According to the uniform policy, all shorts should reach the length of the student’s extended fingertips when standing with arms flat against their sides.  For students in grades 3-6, please note that shorts not meeting this requirement will result in wearing gym strip shorts instead, and K-2 students will need a parent to bring in an appropriate pair of shorts. During this season, sandals in black, brown, grey, white, or a mix of these colours are suitable, but they must have a back strap for student safety during recess. Thank you for your cooperation and support in maintaining a respectful and appropriate dress code.
