What's your PAW print?

It's great to connect with you again!
With the fall break fast approaching, teachers are also preparing for our report cards which will be coming out on November 18th. A reminder to parents that you can access the PowerSchool Parent Portal from our school website. If you want to use the app on your phone, you'll first have to log in from the browser on the school website. There are tutorials on how to do this, but please don't hesitate to connect with the office if you have any difficulties gaining access! We are planning for the return of milk cards, hot lunches, and ice cream cards. We are hoping to have some of these things up and running by the beginning of December, and we will be sending out more information once everything is finalized!
We always encourage parents to reach out to their child's teacher or the administration if they have anything they would like to discuss. Email addresses for all teachers can be found on our school website. We look forward to seeing everyone at our parent-teacher interviews on November 23rd.

In the morning, students from all grades will be participating in pumpkin carving! Our Secondary students will be helping our students Gr. 1-6. Students in Gr. 1-6 are encouraged to bring a pumpkin to carve.
After lunch, students will be given time to change into their costumes. Parents are welcome to come and help students get dressed starting at 12:15 if needed. We will then be having our Costume Parade!
In the last two periods of the day, our Gr. 1-6 students will be having a dance in the gym!

Virtual Mental Health Walk-In Clinic - Kickstand
At Kickstand Connect, you can access free mental health and substance use counseling, peer support, employment services, and register for free workshops and support groups! Registration takes only a few minutes – all you need is an email address and to provide your name, date of birth, gender, and postal code when you book an appointment; you do not need your health card for most services.
