Picture day - Students who were present on Tues. Oct.4th all got individual photos taken as well as a class photo. Proofs will be going home in early Nov. to allow parents the opportunity to order prints or request retakes. After retakes, orders will be finalized and families who chose to order generally receive their prints just before the holiday break in December.
Gatineau Field trip - What a great day for both Kinder classes! The weather was beautiful and everyone enjoyed their time outdoors - students, parents and educators! Student will be following up with some of the activities they engaged in on the trip at school and the Kinder team is currently looking into more outdoor education opportunities for both Kinder classes. Parents who have a passion or interest in this area are encouraged to contact their homeroom team to discuss possibilities. A BIG THANK-YOU to all our parent volunteers!
Terry Fox - The school raised just over $9000 for the Terry Fox foundation. The Kinders did their fair share raising close to $700!! The students thoroughly enjoyed painting on Ms.Saraj & Mrs. Espinoza's clothes, spending the day with Princess Barter and watching Madame Raquel get her hair cut. They also did an amazing job in participating in their first Terry Fox run! Way to go Kinders!
