Fire safety!

Today a team of firefighters came to visit us, SK, and grade 1. We got to see their uniforms and equipment, and even got to climb into the firetruck! Please review this fire safety video with your children, and be sure to check out and discuss a fire safety exit plan on page 5 of the colouring book they bring home today. Safety first!

just a rainy day… and some reminders

A quick reminder to please make sure your child is dressed appropriately for the weather! October and November are very tricky in Ottawa, and we do go outside to play in light rain. The playground is also wet We might have sunshine and 30 degrees or rain and 10 degrees. We recommend a rain jacket, rain pants, and rain boots for outdoors, and dressing in layers because the temperature can vary. Thank you!


NO SCHOOL on Monday, October 9th

SUPER TOP SECRET EXPERIMENT on Tuesday, October 10th. Guess what we are doing!


OCTOBER 17 GLOBAL MAKER DAY! Please send all kinds of recyclables, like all sizes and shapes of cardboard boxes and especially tubes/rolls (like from paper towels and toilet paper). Plastic containers (yogurt, sour cream, etc.) are also welcome but they must be cleaned and not smelly. (Trust me on that one!) We are also asking for corks, paint stir sticks, popsicle sticks, and other things like that. The class that brings the most items is added to the draw to win a prize and because we are the smallest (and most adorable) class in the school… let’s do this!!!
