Hi everyone,
It’s Lisa Jardine calling from Leatherbarrow Primary with your last Tuesday talk mail of the school year.
Tomorrow, weather permitting, we are having our annual outdoor Fun Day from 12:15-1:45pm. You are welcome to come and join us.
This Friday is the last day of school. It is a full day of school so students will be released at the regular time. Students will receive their report cards on Friday.
For our grade 2 and grade 1 French Immersion families, I hope that you have other children so that you can continue to be part of our Leatherbarrow Family. If you don’t, and you are moving on to HES, I thank you for everything you have done for us, and wish you the best in your new school!
For those who will be returning next year, please put Thursday, August 29th on your calendar. This will be our back to school/meet the teacher corn boil. We hope to also officially open our playground on that evening!
Have a wonderful summer!

Hi everyone,

It’s Lisa Jardine calling from Leatherbarrow Primary with your Tuesday talk mail.
Art from the Heart is this Thursday!!! We are very excited! Please click the address below to see a sneak peek of what you can expect to see!
 
Please remember to send in a canned good this week that can be used to prop up your child’s art. All canned goods will be given to the food bank to help to feed families over the summer. You must have a ticket to have something from the BBQ. Tickets for the BBQ will be sent home tomorrow. Sadly, our playground will not be ready to open by Thursday, but you will get a good look at the work that is happening when you are on the field for the BBQ and opening ceremony.
Swimming also starts on Thursday! We walk to swimming, rain or shine, so please make sure that children are dressed appropriately for the walk. Please ensure that they have their bathing suit and towel.
There is a mistake on the June calendar that was sent home.  Sorry about that. I thought you had paid for hot lunch until next week, but Mrs. Hebert assures me you only paid until this Friday, so this will be the last week for hot lunch and milk. Next week, we will make up the hot lunch days that were lost because of weather. We will have pizza on Tuesday to make up the January storm day, and pizza on Thursday to make up the February pizza day lost because of the storm. We will have subs on Wednesday to make up the Feb. sub storm day and subs on Friday to make up the April flood day. We have a list in the office as to who missed these days. Only those students who paid for these items and missed them because of weather will receive hot lunch, so please remember to send lunches and a drink.
Our Home and School, online auction starts next Monday, June 10, and runs until June 16th. All proceeds are going toward our inclusive playground, so remember to bid high, unless of course, you are bidding against me!
Also, next Monday, from 6 -7:30 p.m. (weather permitting) there will be a children's obstacle course on our playground field.  This is a free event sponsored by the ParticipACTION Community Better Challenge in which the town of Hampton is taking part.  Anyone with a postal code beginning with E5N is encouraged to come and give it a try! If a rain date is necessary, it will be posted on the Hampton, NB Facebook page.
Finally, we just received word that the last day of school, Friday, June 21, is a full day for students.
That’s it for today! Thanks for listening! Enjoy the Art from the Heart video and the sunshine!

Hi everyone,
It’s Lisa Jardine calling from Leatherbarrow Primary with your Tuesday talk mail.
Home and School is meeting tonight at 5:30pm.
May is Food Allergy Awareness month. We have students at our school with life threatening food allergies, so we thank you so much for respecting what foods can, and what foods cannot, be sent to school. If you ever have any questions as to whether a food is safe for your child’s classroom, please check with your child’s teacher. In recognition of Food Allergy Awareness month and The Sweet Caroline Foundation, everyone is encouraged to wear purple tomorrow.
We have workers outside diligently working on our inclusive playground improvements.  If we can keep this sunshine, they might be able to work outside all week! Our hope is to have our playground open for Art from the Heart, but like any construction build, we may experience delays and it may not be open on schedule. We will keep our fingers crossed.
Friday is Transition Day! Our current kindergarten students stay home so that we can welcome our next year’s kindergarten class. Grade 2 students will also be going up to Hampton Elementary for a tour. Our grade 1 French Immersion students are going to the Irving Nature Park on Friday, so I have made arrangements for them to go up to Hampton Elementary School on Thursday morning for a tour.
A reminder that next Thursday, June 6th, is Art from the Heart. Please remember to send in your BBQ order forms by this Friday. You need to have a ticket to redeem food at the BBQ.
Finally, our Volunteer Tea is scheduled for Thursday, June 13 at 12:00pm. If you have volunteered this year and the school, we would love to see you there! Please RSVP at the office so we will know how many are coming.
That’s it for today! Thanks for listening! Enjoy the sunshine!

Jump Rope for Heart is happening during Phys.Ed this week. Be sure to ask your child all about it!
Believe it or not, Art from the Heart, the most special night of our whole year, is coming soon! We are having this year’s Art from the Heart on Thursday, June 6th from 5:00-6:45pm. Please be sure to put that date on your calendar now because you will not want to miss it! We are sending a letter home tomorrow with information about AFTH that includes the pre-order forms for both the BBQ and your child’s artwork. BBQ food items must be ordered by next Thursday, May 30th, so that we know how many items we need to have.
Finally, a reminder that next Friday, May 31, is Kindergarten Transition Day. Our current kindergarten children will stay home next Friday so that our next year’s kindergarten students can visit. If you have a child in K this year, please do not send them to school next Friday.

Hi everyone,

It’s Lisa Jardine calling from Leatherbarrow Primary School with your Tuesday talk mail.
Thank you to everyone who came out to the James Mullinger show on Thursday night! It was a fun night and we really appreciate your support!
Our current playground is now closed and workers are taking out our mulch and some of our equipment. In the next few weeks, our new ground cover and 6 pieces of accessible equipment will be added. While the playground is closed, children will be playing in the woods, in the field, going for an organized walk or they will be inside in Lego club, or another lunch time club.
The Code Mobile is visiting our school on Wednesday and on Friday to work with every child on coding. We are really looking forward to their visit.
Back by popular demand, our Home and School will be, once again, holding their online auction from June 10-16th. There are many fabulous items to bid on so stayed tuned for more information about the auction as we get closer to the date. If you have something to donate to the auction, please contact the school or email Michelle McCaffrey at mgiroua@hotmail.com.
Finally, we have had 2 pairs of prescription glasses found outside. If they are yours, you can pick them up in the office.
That’s it for today! Thanks for listening and have a wonderful day!

I hope that those of you who have been affected by the flooding are feeling more positive day by day. If there are families who feel we should be offering any extra support to your children who have been displaced, or affected by the flooding, please let us know. Thank you again to all of you who reached out to help those who were in need. You are such a kind and giving community.
Our inclusive education and play comedy fundraiser featuring James Mullinger has been rescheduled for Thursday, May 9th at Hampton High School. Thank you so much for supporting us with this fundraiser.
There is no school for students this Friday, May 3 or on Monday, May 6th as all staff in the district will be involved in professional learning and meetings.

It’s Lisa Jardine calling from Leatherbarrow Primary School with an important talk mail. 
We have been in communication with the Town of Hampton about flooding, and unfortunately the waters continue to rise in the community, and as with last year, there is concern with the sewage system.   Schools will be closed tomorrow, this decision was made in consultation with Town of Hampton officials and is due to the flooding situation and the impact on the sewer system. Yesterday, teachers sent home extra work with students that could be done at home in the event of school closure.
Unfortunately, this also means that our James Mullinger fundraiser tonight, will have to be postponed. I am so very sorry.  We are communicating with James about his availability and will let you know when we have a new date. Please hold on to your tickets to use on the new date.
For those of you who are flooding, please know that we are thinking of you and many of us will be helping in whatever way we can. For those of you who are assisting others, please be safe and know how much your help is appreciated. 
Take care.
