Some important information for this week....

Pink Shirt Day

This Wednesday is Pink Shirt day! We encourage all students, staff and parents to wear pink in support of anti-bullying.

The Big Crunch

The Big Crunch is coming to Kawartha Heights! As you may be aware, the Big Crunch event is held yearly across Canada as a way to promote healthy eating. This year, the Health Unit and local media will be joining our school at an assembly on Thursday, March 12th at 11:30am as we all celebrate healthy eating and "taking a bite" out of apples all at the same time. Stay tuned for more information as we get closer to the event.

Crestwood Intermediate Transition

The transition to the new Intermediate school has begun! This past week we completed the selection process and I'm happy to announce that Ms. Baker will be our teacher rep, Andrea Grant will be our parent rep and Madison Caton will be our Grade 6 student rep. Our little KH group will be attending our first large transition meeting with Superintendent Mangold at Crestwood SS on Thursday afternoon - as we begin the process in supporting our students in this new adventure.

Hot Lunch Program

Due to the high interest in our hot lunch program, School Council has decided to expand. Beginning in March we will now offer Subway EVERY Monday and Boston Pizza EVERY Thursday. Stay tuned for more information as soon as it begins.

Upcoming dates to keep in mind

NOTE: These are all listed on our Edsby calendar too!

Just one more thing.....

Our world revolves around technology...whether we like it or not. We often have questions about social media and how parents can support their children in using it wisely and safely. In continuing our series on supporting families in understanding how their children use technology, please see the post below about "What parents need to know about Instagram". We hope you find it helpful!
