Principal / Vice Principal’s Message

This will be our last week for Lost & Found.  All items will be donated to a local charity at the end of the week.

Staff will be learning more about Outdoor Learning and how this promotes students’ social emotional well being during a Learning Lunch on Thursday.

Please be sure to check out the active December calendar below and scan ahead into the New Year.  We have lots of exciting learning and celebration scheduled for the coming weeks!


Please continue to check your child’s FreshGrade for regular updates.  Parents / Guardians are now receiving ongoing communication about student progress in Literacy, Numeracy and other subject areas.  As we move towards our early dismissal day on December 8, families should have a clear picture of student’s strengths, areas for further development and ways to support learning at home.  The early dismissal day will provide parents with additional information about student learning.
