Dear Parents

March is here and we are looking forward to spring and maybe a little less of the cold and wet weather.

We had a great time and lots of fun Ice skating at Trout lake arena. It was good to see so many of you coming out and participating. The children thoroughly enjoyed our little outing and some of them have said that they want to learn how to skate. We are also applauding all parents thats had never skated before, yet were brave enough to try it.


We are continuing our Study unit of Canada. This week we will start learning about the Railway that was built to connect Canadas East to West. The children have shown us great interest in our study and have told us about their travels to various parts of the country to visit relatives and their grandparents and siblings that were born in different provinces. Almost all children are working with the Canada puzzle map and asking a lot of questions.

Many children are now part of our reading program and we would like to thank all parents for taking the time and practicing to read with your children, it makes a big difference . Reading is so much more than just reading the story itself. Even though the children are reading their book many times over, it really benefits their ability to memorize the spelling of the words that they are seeing in their books. The English language has many exceptions that can only be mastered by lots of practise and memorization.

We also would like to ask to NOT remove the staples from the readers to copy them as this will destroy our books.

Spring Break, Good Friday and Easter break is coming up and our school will be closed from March 19th to April 3rd 2018.

School will be back in session on Tuesday April 3rd 2018 after Easter Monday.

Thank you for re-registering your child/children with our school. We have now opened registration for new children. It looks like we have several spaces in the afternoon session available.

Please remember to move your watches one hour ahead on Sunday March 11th 2018 for Daylight Savings time .

Ingrid and Cynthia
