Gr3-5 Winter Appreciation
Today kicked off the start of our Grade 3-5 Winter Appreciation week. There will be activities planned each day for students. A handout has been sent home regarding this and the word document can be found under ‘school documents’ on our website.
Friday afternoon (1-3pm) Grade 3-5 students will be having activities outside and a taste of hot chocolate. We are in need of parent volunteers for this event. Please let your child’s teacher know if you’re available to help out.
*Please remember: dress warmly for outside activities!*
Pink Shirt Day began in Nova Scotia where two students stood up to bullying in their high school. A male student was bullied for wearing a pink shirt to school and these students showed their support for him by buying pink shirts and encouraging other students to wear them.
