The Latest News

Good afternoon families,

1. We added another teacher last week as some of our classrooms were getting big. We had roughly 40 new students join us in August but are now back to a comfortable pupil-teacher-ratio. Ms. Kaitlin Hardcastle is teaching grade 4/5. 

Where Does the Time Go?

It is hard to believe but this is our last Friday with our little bisons.  Some information for you as we wrap up 2018-2019 and start planning for 2019-2020:

1.  If you expect your child to be away on Thursday (our last day) please provide a self-addressed and stamped envelope so we can mail you the progress report.  If no envelope is provided we will hang on to it until the fall.  

2.  If you are not attending our school next year please let the office know asap.  Registrations impact everything from supplies to staffing to room configurations.

Dates to Mark on Your Family Calendar!

1.  Racism: Recognize it.

Lost a Glove or Toque?

Good afternoon families,

Thank you for spending some time with us on Friday for our Celebration of Learning!  I trust your child was able to lead you through their environment and share some great learning experiences.  

Reminder:  Please join us at 7 PM this Thursday for the ICE presentation.  The Internet Child Exploitation Unit will be here to help us help our children be safe while using the internet.  You are welcome to park in the parking lot or in front of the school for that evening. 

March Around the Corner!

Good afternoon families,

1.  Please join us March 14th at 7PM for the ICE (Internet Child Exploitation) presentation.  We'll meet on the presentation stairs. This event is being hosted by your School Community Council who meets one Thursday per month and meetings are always open to all parents.  Our next meeting is tomorrow, February 28th at 7 in Studio 2 if you are interested in attending.

2.  Our population continues to grow!  As of today we have surpassed 600!  

February Update

Good morning,

1.  Our SCC is hosting a presentation by I.C.E. (Internet Child Exploitation Unit) on Thursday, March 14 @ 7PM here at the school.  This is an adult only event as the presentation is not appropriate for those under the age of 18.  The event poster can be found HERE.  

2.  Orders are due by Friday if you want to participate in next week's Hot Lunch (Pizza).  

Wishing for Warmer Weather!

Good morning Bison families,

1. This week promises to be a little warmer so we should be outside for all recesses.  Unless it is -25 with the wind chill we are outside so please ensure your children come to school with all the necessary clothing. 

2. Basketball teams are up and running and games begin this week (Tuesdays for boys, Wednesdays for girls).  Our teams are also traveling to Balfour next Monday for the feeder tournament.  Best of luck to all the players and their coaches!
