No Library exchange this week
Library books are to be returned this Monday as usual but there will be no exchange. Mrs. Harrison will be cataloguing and taking stock of inventory prior to the break. Students will be able to take books out again in the new year.
Cubbie clean out!
The Kinder team will be cleaning out the cubbie area this week. All Kinder students will be taking home their indoor shoes on their last day of school as well as their extra change of clothes. This allows for parents to check sizing of indoor shoes and if extra clothes are seasonal. Please be sure to send indoor shoes back to school in January as well as an extra pair of clothes.
Inclement Weather due to -25 degree weather
Last week, Kinder students experienced their first back to back indoor recess days due to the extremely cold weather. In accordance with OCDSB policy, students are to remain indoors when temperatures reach -25 degrees with windchill. When possible, the Kinder team takes students to the gym to burn off energy. Typically students also engage in physical activity in the classroom with Go Noodle activities, dance and yoga.
