Outdoor Play and Extra Clothes
Spring Ottawa weather can range from sunshine to rain to flurries all in a couple of weeks, sometimes in the same day. Please be sure to dress your Kinder for the weather, even as it fluctuates. This may mean snowsuits one day, spring jackets the next, followed by splash pants and rain boots. Please continue to send you child in with mittens/gloves as well as a hat as we have run out of extras at this time. Thanks to all parents who have sent in an extra pair of clothes for their child. If you have yet to do so, please send some in this week. They come in especially handy at this time of year when children like to wade in muddy puddles and play in wet snow/sand.
A friendly reminder to pack a reusable water bottle for your child. There are a number of students who have not had theirs with them this week. Please remember to pack it for them.
The Kinder team would appreciate...
More glue sticks (both classes have run out of the supply collected at the beginning of the school year), card stock and stickers.
We thank-you for all the toilet paper rolls and newspaper. We have now collected enough for both classes.
