“May this season remind you of the hope, joy, love and peace found in Christ.” Romans 15:13
As the Christmas season quickly approaches, let us be reminded that before this beautiful celebration, there is a time of preparation. During Advent, may we continue to prepare ourselves to receive Jesus more fully in our daily lives and hearts.
Last day of school before Christmas Holidays is Dec. 20th. Classes resume at our regular time 9:10 a.m. on January 6th.
Students are reminded to wear their coats when outside. If parents/guardians could kindly reiterate this message at home that would be appreciated.
Lost and Found Items
When in the school, please take some time to look through our Lost and Found Bin at the main entrance.
Our students and staff enjoy opportunities to share some of their activities with parents/guardians, and the school community through teams, clubs, and special events. Many of these are “memory making” for families and as such photographs are often taken. We ask that families exercise their discretion when taking photographs or videos at school events and consider the privacy of other students who may also be present in those pictures. We would appreciate if families not upload images of students other than their own to the Internet (e.g. YouTube; Facebook). Your cooperation is appreciated.
On occasion, your child(ren) may indicate that a “Lockdown Practice” or a “Tornado Drill” was called at school. Please be assured that the safety of all students is paramount, therefore, we have these practices/drills, similar to a “Fire Drill” to ensure that as a school community we can respond quickly. Please feel free to contact the school office if you have any questions. Again, we have these practices so to ensure the safety of our school community.
Medication at School
If you will require your child(ren) to receive ANY form of medication, either over the counter (Tylenol, cough medicine), or prescription, the school is required to have on file, your signed consent. Please contact the office or your child’s teacher if you require an “Administration of Oral Medication Form” for your child(ren). We are not able to accept a verbal request to administer any form of medication. The medication is to be kept in the office cabinet, and must be administered by one of the staff.
