Rescheduled Pickleball Date

Dear Grade 6/7 Families,


Due to the snow day on March 2, our trip to Stratford to the Agriplex to learn about the sport of pickleball has been rescheduled for the afternoon of Wednesday, March 23, 2016. Students will be leaving the school by bus at 11:45 am and returning back to the school in time for regular bus dismissal.


Students are not required to fill out another permission form to attend but please note the change of date. If your son or daughter did not complete the original permission form please have them ask the office for a new one.

Students need to bring clean indoor running shoes that day, activewear and are encouraged to bring safety glasses or lighter sunglasses to use for protective eyewear that day. If they do not have glasses a pair will be provided for them.


If you have any questions or concerns please contact Mrs. Kelly at the school. I hope you've had a wonderful March Break!


Thank you.

Mrs. Kelly
