**NOTE FROM Ms Eberle**

A quick notice to parents that a number of parking complaints have come forward from the community and our RCMP liaison has been on site to assist. A quick reminder to parents to ensure that posted parking sign requirements are met, ensure crosswalks are being used and please keep driveways and staff parking accessible.

Please follow the guidelines and help out as our parking lot can be very busy. Adhering to the rules keeps everyone safe! Thank you for your help!

Spirit Day_Multi_Culture


Vice-principal, Dawn Driver has sent out the following via email:

Hi Families:

I am sending this email to ask again for food or artifacts for our multicultural day.  We sent a letter earlier in January asking for cultural artifacts to borrow for display and for donations of cultural food.
Thank you to all those who have already replied.
If you haven’t yet sent in your yellow form, we are giving you another chance to reply and send the form back, as we need more food, and artifacts.  If you can make a dish of some type of food that represents your culture (or a culture you’d like to share), can you please send your form as soon as you can next week.
We could also use more artifacts to display.  We would only borrow the artifacts.  If you have something you could share to display your culture, please send the form to your child’s teacher as soon as possible next week.
Multicultural Day is Feb. 28.  We will be asking students to wear clothing to represent their cultural as part of the day. This will be the spirit day for February.
Thank you again for your support,
Dawn Driver
