    The Week Ahead
    by Steve MacGregor - Monday, 17 December 2018, 10:53 AM

    As we enter into the final week before the break, a couple of things to note:

    • Swim Club is on this week for all members who have been participating through the fall.  It is a fun swim this week!
    • The winter assembly is scheduled for 10:00 on Friday morning and will feature 'thank you's, a short slide show looking back at the first term, and some songs from our choir

    As different "bugs" are running through a number of schools, please remind your kids about the importance of washing hands, and getting enough sleep to stay healthy ahead of the break.

Meighan de Pass, and possibly other members of the RCMP in the afternoon tomorrow to engage in a lockdown drill  At younger grades we let the kids know that we practise this in case somebody comes into the school that isn't supposed to be here, and with older kids we may reference an intruder but will defer more detailed conversations (especially pertaining to high-profile events that may have been in the news) to parents/families.
