School News/Highlights:  

On Family Literacy Day, students from grades 2-6 listened to author Andrew Caddell, “The Goal”. Many students asked where they could get his book from. Mr. Caddell kindly donated one to the school for staff and students to enjoy.  If however you are interested in purchasing one for your home, here are the details: https://www.amazon.ca/s?k=the+goal+caddell&ref=nb_sb_noss

Our school will be taking part in National Sweater Day on Thursday, February 6th!  Thank you to our ECO Team for organizing. National Sweater Day is an annual event organized by World Wildlife Fund (WWF) Canada. On National Sweater Day, WWF asks Canadians from coast to coast to turn down thermostats by two degrees Celsius at home, at school, and at work to highlight the role that energy conservation plays in preventing climate change.

Our school buildings will be a little chillier on February 6th, so we are asking that all students wear or bring a sweater to school.  Through participation, we hope to understand how everyday actions affect our planet’s future. We are looking forward to a cozy day in the classroom!  To learn more about National Sweater Day, please visit schools.wwf.ca
