Jump Rope for Heart - May 8th, envelopes due back no later than May 7th
Jump Rope for Heart is an annual school event. Fundraising envelopes went home on Friday. Fundraising is OPTIONAL, no need to, if you don't want to. All funds collected go to the Heart & Stroke Foundation. Fundraising envelopes are due no later than Monday, May 7th. All Kinder students, fundraisers or not, will be participating in the school event where a variety of stations will be set up for them to rotate through, exercise and have fun!
(Your SK child will remember this event from last year, it's the whole school event where they get 1/2 of a banana as a snack - it's the 1/2 banana they remember, go figure)
What is the weather, weather, weather? What is the weather, out today?
Mother Nature isn't too keen on spring this year...so please keep close tabs on the weather forecast & send your child to school ready for outdoor play. This week ranges from 12 - 24 degrees, with rain, cloud and sun. If your child is sensitive to the sun, please be sure to apply sunscreen to them prior to leaving the house.
Water bottles & extra snacks
Please pack those water bottles and an extra snack in your child's lunch. Thanks!
Education Week is next week!
Please check the calendar and join us next week for some of the activities listed. Your child will be over the moon if you can come play with them during our Open House on May, 8th. The Grand Hall will be a sight to see when it turns into HapHAZart on May 10th.
