School Council News
Our first School Council Meeting was held on October 9th. Thank you very much to all who attended. We are pleased to announce that for this year's Executive, John Dewis and Erin Wark were elected as Co-Chairs, Angel Horne was elected as Secretary and Jennifer O’Connell was elected as Treasurer.
Our next two meetings will be:
November 8th – 6pm (Sub-committee meeting to plan the Nov. 29th Spaghetti Dinner)
December 13th – 6:30pm Regular Meeting (Library)
All are welcome to attend!
We would like to remind all parents and students that Friday, October 26th is a PA day and the school will be closed.
Picture Retake Day & Class Photos
Just a reminder that retake picture day will be on November 1st, 2018. We will also be taking class photos that day, so please make sure that students are at school!
We feel the best way to reduce the risk of accidental exposure to these students is to respectfully ask for the co-operation of the parents/guardians within our school community to avoid sending any peanut butter or products containing peanuts or tree nuts listed in the ingredients. WOWBUTTER may be brought to school if the stickers which accompany the product are placed on the sandwich or container wrapping.
We realize it has been past practice in the school to allow some classrooms to have peanut products, however with shared classrooms and students going to various classrooms for lunch, it has become almost impossible to provide our anaphylactic students with a peanut safe space. If you have any further questions please do not hesitate to call Mrs. LaBelle at the school.
