There will be an Options to Anger session starting in February. If you feel like you would like to learn strategies to deal with frustration and how to better handle your anger, please see Ms. McKay in the main office for more information.

It is Family Literacy Day today. The purpose of Family Literacy Day is to raise awareness about the importance of reading and engaging in literacy-related activities as a family. The theme this year is Travel the World. Use your imagination to go exploring and travel the world together as a family – you never know what you’ll learn! Plan your dream trip, learn about another culture and open your mind to the world. For more information: https://abclifeliteracy.ca/all-programs/family-literacy-day/.

There will be a Pop-Up Library outside the school at lunch time today hosted by the Woodlawn Library.

There will be a Band Performance in the Gym all day tomorrow which will be recorded. Details on how this performance can be viewed by parents will be communicated as soon as possible. ALL Band students are reminded to have their instruments and music with them tomorrow.

Please remind your child to come to school wearing a new/clean mask each day and perhaps have another mask in their back pack. Thank you!
