Dear Families,

Congratulations to all of you for completing two weeks of remote learning: we continue to be so impressed with the extraordinary effort that you are making to support your children's learning. We miss seeing our Hawks at school and are so proud of their efforts to keep learning and to stay connected. We know that many of our students also miss seeing friends and staff in person, and are anxious to get back to their regular routines. Please focus on wellness first: encourage your children to take breaks, get active outside and celebrate what they are doing to participate in learning...and know that each family has unique needs, and that learning may look different in different homes. We know that this is a challenging time and encourage you to continue to connect with your child's teachers, or with us should you need some support.

We are super excited that we are already beginning to receive entries for the Cake Boss Challenge Version 2.0! We hope that this will be a fun way for families to spend time together off screens, and enjoy getting creative in the kitchen. Here are the contest details:


Most Original, Winter Wonderland, Remote Learning


  1. Individual Entry (Primary/Junior/Intermediate Categories)

***You can use one or more cupcakes OR a whole cake to create your tasty design***

Have a wonderful weekend, Hawks. Enjoy the snow tomorrow!

Mme Peart and Mrs. Davey

Lifetouch School Photography: Ordering School Photos

We will be touching base with Lifetouch School Photography to ask them to extend the deadline for ordering photos, as families have not yet been able to see the proofs.

Thanks for your patience!
