RE: MONTHLY NEWSLETTER - UPCOMING OCTOBER DATES

Dear Parents and Guardians,

Wow that first month flew right by for us at the School! The weather is cooling down, so please make sure that your child is bundled up! Our teachers will be holding annual Caregiver/ Teacher Meetings from Monday Oct. 21st to Friday Oct. 25th to check-in with you regarding your child’s progress thus far and to answer any questions that you may have regarding your child, the class or the school. We will be implementing an early dismissal from classes during that week. Students will be supervised from 2:30pm until the regular bus run while participating in outdoor or indoor physical activities (caregivers are welcome to pick up their students after 2:30pm if they want, we just ask that you let Marisa know before doing so.)  PLEASE NOTE: Volley Ball will also start up this Month for Grades 5 & 6Practice and Game Dates still to be Confirmed (a letter will be sent later for interested students).
