RE: UPCOMING MARCH DATES

Dear Parents and Guardians,

March is going to be a short month due to the Spring Break, but we have some fun events planned this month. The Grade 3/4s will be gone for most of the last week of school in March due to a camping trip at Blue Lake Camp. We ask that parents ensure that students are properly prepared to participate with warm clothing, snow gear and warm bedding (an information sheet and permission form were sent by their teacher already). Swimming Lessons will continue every Tuesday morning for the Ks to 2s and every Thursday morning for the 3s to 6s (with the exception of the Blue Lake week for the grade 3/4s). We ask that parents ensure that students are at the school on time for the swim days because the bus will leave right after breakfast. If your student is late, they will be left behind.
