South Oaks School
Thanks to the K-2 students and staff for a wonderful Christmas Concert! I hope the concert helped to prepare you for the Christmas season and that you had a great time with family and friends.
It is now time to look ahead into the New Year. This year will bring many exciting events such as Winter Fun Day, I Love to Read Month, the Book Fair, Spring Concert, Field Trips, etc. It will certainly be a great year of learning together. Most importantly, it will bring many opportunities to build relationships in a safe place.
In the New Year, we welcome Susan Simcoe to our Music program. We will also see the half time return of Alicia French in grade 4AP, at least until Spring Break. Please see below for further details about other January happenings.
Happy New Year!

Cold Weather Policy
The South Oaks policy is that all students are required to go outside for some fresh air unless the combined temperature / wind-chill effect is –30 degrees Celsius or lower. We make sure they are bundled up with all the warm clothes that are sent from home. There are also always a number of adults on duty outside with the students, who, if necessary, may bring them all in, especially during the longer noon hour recess. We do not have supervision inside at recess time, so if a request is made for a child to stay in, that child will be unsupervised.
