The Education Foundation helps families and students in need by providing funding for breakfast programs, school snacks, field trips and boots/snowsuits. Please send a toonie in (or more) with your child on Tuesday to support this initiative.
Pink Shirt Day - This Wed. Feb.28th
All students are encouraged to wear pink on Wednesday, Feb.28th to mark Pink Shirt Day. Pink Shirt Day is an anti-bullying awareness day that originated in Nova Scotia in 2007 when 2 high school students witnessed a boy being ridiculed for wearing a pink shirt. In a show of support, the 2 boys went out and bought a bunch of pink shirts to hand out to fellow students and to show the bullies that there is strength in numbers.
This is a meaningful message for Kinder students who often associate pink with gender. Help us bust this stereotype and communicate that pink is nothing but a colour that can be worn/used by anyone. Don't have a pink shirt - no worries! Students can wear anything pink - scarves, hats, pants, ties/bowties.
Another Mild Weather Week
As the temperatures begin to get milder, the Kinder yard starts to get wet, wet, wet. Keeping your Kinder out of the puddles and wet snow is impossible. They love it! Please pack extra socks and gloves/mitts. Splash pants are also a good idea as snow pants also get soaked through.
