York Avenue Family Newsletter - 10/10/21

Message from Mrs. Richardson

Dear York Avenue Families,


Walk to School Day was a hit--lots of smiles to be found! What a fun way to start our day! Thanks to everyone who was able to take part in it. I've included some pictures below.


As I visited classrooms this week, I saw students engaged in discussions, students enjoying learning and students following our expectations of 'Be ready, Be responsible, Be respectful' but most importantly, 'Be kind'! Students and staff continue to amaze me with their hard work and dedication to learning.


A few reminders:

  • Tuesday, October 12 - Dining Night Out at the Metropolitan
  • Thursday & Friday, October 21-22 - Book Fair for students in the YA Library.
  • Friday, October 22 - GLOW RUN, 6:00-8:00 pm
  • Please send your child to school with a refillable water bottle. With the warm days we're having, the kids are quite thirsty throughout the day.


Also, I wanted to say Happy Indigenous People's Day for Monday! October 11th recognizes their resilience and diversity, and we honor this day with our families and students who identify as Indigenous People!


Warmly,


Dipa Richardson

Principal
