Playground Update + More

Hello Families,

A big thank you to the families who came out to help on day 1 of our playground installation. It was tiring but productive. Day 2 is tomorrow and we are still looking for at least one more person to help, particularly in the later morning/afternoon when the concrete will be put around the posts and a couple of volunteers will need to be going to work. Help on Tuesday for final touches and to assist equipment spreading gravel around the structures will also be appreciated 🙂

And it’s October! A few items to note are:
Wed Oct 5 – 1pm: Gr 11/12 Post-Secondary Institutions info field trip

Fri Oct 7 – Picture Day – If there is a parent who would like to volunteer to help with pictures, Lifetouch offers a coupon towards the purchase of your child’s portrait package.
Mon Oct 10 – No School – Thanksgiving
Thu Oct 13 – Sun Oct 16 – Gr 5-10 Flag Football Tournament
Mon Oct 24 – No School – Non-Instructional Day
Tue Oct 25 – No SD59 busses (we will have a shuttle bus). Gr 4-7 students will have a field trip to the Rec Centre to learn how to curl. Watch for a permission slip coming home this week.

We praise God for beautiful fall weather, particularly during the work on our playground. We hope you were able to enjoy the fall colours this weekend!

Blessings on your week,
Kristin Atherton
