Week two of
the new year has been great! Students are settled in and lots of fun learning
is happening. I want to THANK parents that were able to attend our Parent
Welcome Night. Hopefully you found this evening informative. If at any time you
have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact your child's
This week we will focus on 'KINDNESS'
in honor of Becca Schofield Day. Rebecca was a student in Riverview, NB
that had one wish for people to do random acts of kindness. You may have heard
of #BeccaToldMeTo. She believed acts of kindness did not have to be big or
expensive- they just need to come from the heart. We will be encouraging
students to do random acts of kindness for each other and to continue all
through the school year.
A few reminders:
Students Fees- Reminder that student fees
are due. The cost this year is $45. This can be paid online or at school.
Apple Picking Field Trip- Information went
home this week. Reminder the cost of the trip is $4 per student. I would like
to thank our home and school for covering the remainder of the fee.
Recess/Weather-We have had some beautiful days
to start the year, but we know the rain/cold will be upon us soon. Please be
sure your child is dressed for the weather. We will go outside during recess
time as much as possible, unless the weather does not permit (heavy rain, cold
temperatures). This means if it is drizzling out. windy, snowy, etc. we will be
getting outside for some fresh air and free time. Please make sure your child
comes prepared to be outside for the weather- coats, rain boots, hats, mittens,
etc. It is also a good idea ( no matter the grade level) to have a change of
clothes in your child's back pack or left in the classroom.
Picture Day- Reminder on Thursday,
September 19th is picture day. Wear your best smile!
Breakfast Program- Our breakfast program will be
starting this week on Tuesday. This week students will be having cereal and
