Weekly Notes 11/21/2019


Congratulations and well done to Karen Moore, the entire Theatre Play Shop Class and all of the staff who worked so hard on The Best Christmas Pageant Ever.  Another great performance in the books.  Look for photos in the big room and a DVD soon.

Fall Parent Conferences: Monday and Tuesday

We are looking forward to hosting the fall parent conferences on Monday and Tuesday. A few details to note: 

  • Holiday Book Fair – Books make great gifts! The library team have curated a wonderful selection of new children’s books that will be for sale in the big room during conferences. Proceeds from the book fair go toward the purchase of new books for the library. Students browse the fair and create a wishlist which will be available to you as a guide while you shop.  
  • Nourish Kitchen – The food truck will be open during conferences. We are happy to offer free coffee and tea to all parents in addition to a full selection of tasty eats for purchase. There will also be $1 OFF coupons available outside the office that you can redeem for breakfast wraps, smoothies, lunches and snacks during conference days! A small gift of *thanks* from the Nourish Team. 
  • Lost and Found – Please take a look at our massive Lost and Found collection when you are at school for your conference.
