Please feel free to join the staff and students as we gather together tomorrow morning at 10:30 a.m. to observe Remembrance Day, which is on Sunday. We will have a guest, who welcomes the children's questions, lay wreathes and wear poppies to show our support to those who have served and continue to serve our country and allow us the freedom that so many others do not have.
Traditionally, the students are asked to bring a monetary donation for the poppy that they will receive and proudly wear tomorrow and Friday before taking them home for the weekend.
I pray that each and everyone of you are safe in your homes tonight, with your families, as we experience the wonder and power of God, who has blessed us with the snow! Here's the scene out my front window....
and out the back door. I had a clean and dry driveway this morning!
On Tuesday, November 20th, we will have been in school for 50 days!
Sounds like a great reason to celebrate.
All of our work will relate to the number 50 in one way or another. As well, we hope to experience the 1950's 'kid style'! We will be having a bubblegum blowing contest, seeing how many times we can hula hoop, try our hand at bowling, learn how to make a root beer float and then have a sock hop!
It would add to the fun if you allow your child to dress up 50's style! Boys might wear a white t-shirt, rolled up jeans and slick back their hair. Girls could try bobby socks, ponytails with a scarf ties around, and maybe even a poodle skirt. Not sure how to sew? I found this easy step by step set of directions.
