This week's Shout-Outs:

Howl out to all the support staff, we are glad to have you all at super strength! You are awesome!

- Sara Reid

Sarah E and Laura for coaching our Junior Soccer Teams at their tournament this week! We don't often realize what a big deal these teams and tournaments are to the kids. Last Friday so many of them told me they were worried that we wouldn't be at school this week and that their tournament would be cancelled. Thank you for giving up your lunches to coach them and for putting up with all the headaches of trying to figure out what to do when plans change.

- Pascale

Lots of people to be thankful for:

  • Mary and Peter for kindly lending me brown foam for my thanksgiving craft;
  • Jane, Katie and Sarah E. for offering support to my class and I as we had a last minute classroom change;
  • Mary and Erin for their patience and time with me and my long list of IEP’s;
  • Shane for dropping everything to disinfect my classroom;
  • Jane and Katie for always sharing their creative lesson ideas and materials with me;
  • And to the various staff members who always make a point to ask me how my day was. There are too many of you to list but I want you to know it is appreciated.

- Kristine

Great Stuff

Here are a few photos of great things happening around the school last week. Don't be shy about texting me your own photos to include in these weekly newsletters. (Lots of people do!).
