This year, the whole school will be celebrating on the afternoon of Friday, October 28. The Jr. High classes will be having their dance, elementary students have some activities planned and Gr. 1, 2, and 3 will have their games day. This will be the only day that the students dress up. They will not dress up at school on Monday, October 31.
As with all of our classrooms, we are always very careful about the foods that are brought in to ensure the safety of all our students. Please, if you would like to send a little something from your child to the other students in the class, do not send food items. Little treats like erasers, pencils, stickers or other Halloween goodies would be much more appropriate. One mother has volunteered to organize the food items for the class to eat, again to ensure safety, so we will be collecting money for the food as well as the prizes for the games. Be expecting a letter in the BEE binder sometimes this week.
I also want to let you know that EICS has asked that volunteers in the school, or those going on field trips, have a criminal records check. All it involves is taking a letter from the school, which I already have ready and will be sending home this week, to the RCMP station. The check takes less than 1/2 hour and because it is being sanctioned by the school, there will be no fee. It would be great to get that done before the end of the month so that we can have lots of parent volunteers for Oct. 28's games day!
