I hope everyone is enjoying this Advent season, as well all know how busy this season is we certainly appreciate your support in helping our children continue to work hard with school. In addition, thank you for your continued support and generosity with the Giving Tree and Adopt-a-Family traditions.

To continue in the holiday spirit, the students can opt to wear an Ugly Christmas Sweater or any festive Christmas sweater or sweatshirt over their uniform tomorrow instead of their school sweater or fleece. Don't forget to join us for the Band's Winter Concert tomorrow night beginning at 7pm in the Counsel Room.

Please mark your calendars to join us next Friday, December 21st for our Annual Christmas Program which will begin at 8:45am. Students are invited to dress up in their Holiday Best for the program that morning. The classroom parties will begin after the program concludes. Please note the children should not be exchanging gifts with their friends at school as we do not want anyone to feel left out. We will conclude our day at 11:30 and begin our Christmas break.

As always we sincerely appreciate your help and support!

Adrianne Jewett, Principal
