    We are back in full swing! This term promises to be an exciting one with all the winter activities around us. The rink is up and running. The schedule is being finalized and will be sent home shortly. The sliding hill is awesome and students have the opportunity to slide every day at recess time. A reminder that all these activities require winter gear including snowpants. Skaters need helmets and a face mask is strongly encouraged. Hope everyone plays safe and has fun!

Tomorrow is Croft's first SHOPPING PARTY for grades 3-5 (Wednesday is K-2).  A pink sheet was sent home this afternoon.  Students are to bring it back with $2/gift to be able to purchase their gifts.  No list = no shopping.  This is a great Home & School fundraiser to help create independence in our children.  Please help them get organize with this tonight.

     A month or so ago, we welcomed Bubbles our pet budgie. He was rather quiet but adjusted well to the classroom. We have teams of students that take care of his needs each day. We also take him out to visit us on our shoulders while we work.Last week, Bubbles had a play date with Sunny. Sunny spent the day with Bubbles and they had a great time swinging, playing, singing and cuddling. After Sunny returned home, Bubbles was very lonely and quiet. We realized that Bubbles needed a friend to keep him/her company, so we welcomed a new budgie that we have named Kiwi. They are very happy together. The students are very responsible with our new additions and I am pleased with their kindness towards our birds.We will surely enjoy them throughout the year. Here are some pics:
