North Side Elementary School Night Jan. 20th
It is time to give you the date for our most popular UNB Varsity Reds hockey event of the year.
North Side Elementary School Night
Friday, January 20th vs. St. Mary’s Huskies – 7:00pm at the Aitken Centre
The Varsity Reds look forward to hosting your students and staff again this season. This event is the highlight of the year for our student athletes. They very much appreciate Elementary School Night, with all the excitement the kids bring to the game.
Here’s what you need to know:
1. Parents are now responsible to pick up their child’s ticket, and purchase their own through the Aitken Centre box office. Each student MUST have a game ticket. Each school has been assigned a section by the box office. When parents purchase their tickets, they will need to say which school they are from.
2. Parents of students will receive half price admission($6) on tickets purchased for this game, but only at the box office. Parents are encouraged to pick up their tickets before 5:00pm on Thursday, January 19th, at the box office. If parents wait until game night, they could arrive and find out the game is sold out. We cannot make the half-price ticket available on line, as it is only valid for North Side Elementary School parents, and the computer has no way of differentiating them from other customers.
3. The Aitken Centre box office is open 11:00am to 4:00pm Monday, Wednesday and Friday, and 11:00am to 5:00pm Tuesday and Thursday.

Dear Parents/Guardians and Friends of KVMS,
“Waylon the Coyote” here! I just wanted to stop by again this month and let you know about some of the awesome things your children have been involved in since our last newsletter and what you can expect in the next few weeks prior to the Christmas break.
Since our last newsletter we have had the privilege to participate in a variety of events. Thinking back through the last month, we had the opportunity to attend a Fire Prevention/Safety session with our Kindergarten to Grade 2 students. This was presented to our students through members of our local Fire Department. We also had the honour to personally thank just a few of our Veterans as well as current members of our military during our Remembrance Day service held at our school. A special “coyote howl” goes out to Mr. Jeff Zaat and Mrs. Dorothy Lagacy for organizing a very heartfelt ceremony. We are very proud of all the students who participated! Our students showed respect and regard for all of those in attendance.
Other school functions that occurred include: report cards/student led conferences, badminton, Paws Praise Assembly, Onesie Day, whole school vegetable tray day and level 2 and 3 activities for our Middle School Integrity Matters Program.
Last but not least…WE Day. Thank you to all those who were involved in providing many of our student leaders an amazing experience. One that is sure to last an entire lifetime! It sure was a busy month! December looks no different with Breakfast of Champions for our Middle Level students, our Christmas concert as well as our Christmas dinner.
As we approach the holiday season, our KVMS family extends to you our warmest Christmas wishes. We would like to sincerely wish all our parents/families, community partners, students and friends a safe and Happy Holiday Season as well as a Healthy and Prosperous New Year. We truly are blessed!
PLEASE FEEL FREE
Please feel free to pack an extra pair of mitts and hat for your child in their bag

Leaders of Music
We have had a blast learning about Rush, Heart and The Tragically Hip in November. Students were exposed to some great music and inspiring stories about these three iconic groups. They have not only influenced the music of our time but our culture as well.
In December we will take another look at the Piano Guys and be awed by their talent for blending various styles of music, humor and incredible skill on their instruments. Please check out our website: http://web1.nbed.nb.ca/sites/ASD-W/kvms/Pages/default.asp . Go to "Extracurricular" and "Leaders in Music Videos" for updated clips on these artists.
Christmas Concert Preparations
Our theme for the Christmas concert is "Christmas Around the World". Students are busy working on their songs for the concert. Please encourage home practice and review of lyrics. Also, teacher will be sending notes home with regard to dress and props needed for the concert. We are looking forward to this event (Dress rehearsal-Friday, December 9th; Concert-Friday, December 16th (9:00am and 1:00pm) Storm date -Thursday, December 22nd (Same Times)!
