This week students participated in safe schools week. We
planned and practiced ways to be safe at school and prepared ourselves in case
of emergencies. Please talk with your child about these practices, so they can
share with you what they learned.
The weather has been holding up nicely for us and we have
enjoyed some gorgeous afternoons. However, please keep in mind that most
mornings are cool and to be sure your child is dressed appropriately.
Reminder PL day- This
week we have a Professional Learning day on Tuesday. School will dismiss at
11:00am. Please be sure your child’s afterschool care is aware of the changes.
Picture retakes are on Wednesday, October 25th.
Movie Night- Friday
will be a pajama day for all followed by a movie, popcorn, and pizza
afterschool in the gymnasium if your child chooses to participate. This year
our Home and School has purchased a licence to show movies as part of
fundraising initiatives. We will have a few more movie events as the year goes
on. This movie event is for students, but we will have family movie events also
where everyone is invited to join. Funds raised at these events will go towards
school initiatives in numeracy, literacy, and enrichment. Cost of this movie
event is $10- this includes popcorn, drink, pizza, and a movie. Grades K-2 can
stay right here after school from 2-3pm and they will participate in games,
activities, in the school library with parent volunteers. When grades 3-5
dismiss we will all meet in the gymnasium for the movie. We are really looking
forward to this fun evening!
Parent Volunteers- We
are looking for a few parent volunteers from 2-3:15pm on Friday, October 27th
to help with our K-2s for afterschool before the movie. If you are available
and willing, please contact the school.
We will be asking for a few parent and student volunteers to greet customers at
Chapters on November 1st and ask them to mention McAdam Avenue upon
check out. A link will be sent home for you to sign up to help out. Chapters
will then donate a portion of their sales that evening to MAS. So please invite
friends and families to do their shopping at Chapters on November 1st
