Message from the Principal
The PTO Fall BBQ! What a wonderful event for our community. Brian Mason- PTO President has sent a big thank you out to to parents and staff who contributed their time and energy. I’m sure you will agree with, me when I give a shout out to Brian too. With his leadership, the past two community events have been a great success. (I can’t wait to see what UN Day holds in store!)
The raffle closest to my heart, Elementary Principal for a Day was won by: Yu Jeong Lee in Grade 3. Yu Jeong and I will be getting together soon to discuss the event- which will more than likely occur in the Spring.
This week we send our Grade 5 students off to Łopuszna in the Polish mountains. I will be helping at the train station this morning and on Thursday afternoon to send them off and welcome them back. It is a big event for all involved. If this weather holds… it will be a magical trip. Have fun Grade 5!

REMINDER: If your child is absent...
When your child is absent, please let the classroom teacher or/ and ES Office (firstname.lastname@example.org) know as soon as possible. If we do not hear from you by 9:30 and your child is not yet at school, we will call a parent to make sure he/ she is indeed absent. Please remember to call ahead so we don’t need to call you.
“Wheelie Shoes” are not allowed at school. They pose a danger on our stairs and outside. Please do not send your child to school in Wheelies.
