Happy Thanksgiving! October 2020
COVID Free Conversations?
I thought that was rather brilliant. As we have received so much information about COVID lately, we may need to draw some boundaries. COVID is a historic event in our world today, but it is not the only important thing that is happening. So, for this newsletter, I have decided to focus on some significant things happening in the school in the next few weeks and have a COVID free newsletter.

Terry Fox Walk
Picture Day Changes
Orange Shirt Day - Oct. 2
Your children are also welcome to wear an Orange Shirt on this day, as a way to show support and acknowledge that "Every Child Matters". A variety of lessons will be planned in some classrooms, to link this special event with the Social Studies curriculum. Please note that this is a student only event. Unfortunately, we cannot have parents at the event due to health restrictions. Thanks for your understanding.
SCHOOL BUS SAFETY TIPS FOR PARENTS:
Make sure your children know and follow these rules:
1. Be on time
2. Never run to or from the bus.
3. Stand back from the curb.
4. Don't push or shove.
5. Stay in your seat.
6. Don't yell or shout.
7. Always obey the driver.
8. Wait for the driver's signal before crossing.
9. Always cross at least 10 feet in front of the bus.
10. Never crawl under a school bus.
11. Wear a mask!
Clothing that your children like may not always be safe. Drawstrings can catch in playground equipment, fences, school bus doors and escalators. Wherever possible remove, shorten or replace drawstrings with another kind of fastener.
