It's here! Warm weather is here!!!

Just a few start of summer weather reminders:

  • Students will be learning and playing outside more often. Please ensure that students have outdoor shoes that they can run and do phys-ed in - we've had a few accidents on the climber due to flip flops/sandals - students must be wearing running shoes to play on the climber.
  • Check the weather in the morning! We're sending the students out for recess even when it is lightly sprinkling. We encourage rubber boots, raincoats/hats, and extra change of clothes!

Bus Reminder for Siblings in High School

Just a reminder that high school students are not allowed on our buses during our morning and after school runs.

Lesson Spots Still Available

Spots for piano, vocal or ukulele lessons are still available for September. Please let Carol Kenny know if you are interested. (613) 572-3000 or
