This week, our Board of Directors sent out a letter about parking protocols.  Further to the letter, please make sure that if you are using the loading zone to drop-off your child(ren) in the morning, do not leave your vehicle unattended while walking your child(ren) to their door.  According to emails received, this is becoming an issue and holding up traffic.  Please drop and go so that others can have the same opportunity.  Once you are in the loading zone, please pull up as much as you can so that other vehicles can pull in behind you.

You will also find attached to this update the letter that was sent home yesterday.  Please note that there is a correction for the VIP hours email address. (link to revised information)


A really big thankyou to all our volunteers, parent and student shoppers, and staff that supported our BookFair week and made it a success! We had a fun week with many contests, prizes, positive energy and excitement from the students!

The proceeds earned from the BookFair allow us to purchase books for our Guided Reading program, Library and classrooms. We also have been able to purchase: bulk class art supplies such as chalk and oil pastels, classroom carpets, bulletin board lettering and banners, science center materials, coding and enrichment resources, library equipment such as book repair kits and this year a much needed Book Return cart. 

Again, many thanks!

The BookFair Committee


There will be many opportunities where parents may need a fob to enter the school for special circumstances/events. 

Fobs are $20.00 and must be paid for before they are received.  There is also a form which must be filled out. If you are interested in receiving a fob, please come into the front office to order, pre-pay, and complete the form.  Fobs are only created once payment is received.
