Parent Peek at the Week

Week of February 3rd, 2020

In case you missed it.....

Some important information for this week....

Possible Job Action

If the government and teachers' union do not reach a settlement, there will be 2 days of job action this week - Wednesday and Thursday. The school will be closed to students. Follow Edsby and our local media for updates.

Hot lunch orders

Last week's Subway lunch went exceptionally well, although there were a few sad faces when they realized that they weren't getting a sub. It's helpful if you can let your child know if they are getting pizza this week (Monday's hot lunch). Thanks for your support! Sometimes small upsets can last a long time at school!

Lice Checks

This week every child in the school will have their head checked. It only takes a minute and goes a LONG way in helping us to keep head lice from being a problem at the school. Thanks to all parents who are thorough in treating head lice if it happens to be found. It's so important to follow all of the steps. If you ever need more information on what to do, please don't hesitate to ask us for help.

Cougar Challenge

Don't forget to make some time to sit down with your children and complete the Cougar Challenge. There is a task for Kindergarten, Grades 1-3 and Grades 4-6. Once you've done the challenge, submit your work to the office. You may win a prize! (See the challenges below)
