Backwards Day and Spring Break

Hi families,

Tomorrow, Thursday, March 9th, our school will be hosting “March Mayhem”! We are welcoming students to wear their clothing backwards or even inside out! (This is optional!)

Spring Break Preparations:
Can you please send a plastic bag to school with your child either tomorrow or Friday. If you have extra plastic bags you’d like to donate to the classroom, I’d be happy to take them too! We will be sending home all of their cloakroom belongings (i.e. Clothes, Shoes, Muddy Buddies, etc.) on Friday.

Once school resumes on Monday, March 27th, please send back a complete set.
A complete set includes:
-1 pair of pants
-1 shirt
-1 pair of underwear
-1 pair of socks
-inside shoes (no laces)
-rain pants/muddy buddy -if possible

Wishing you all a wonderful Spring Break!

Ms. Quin

Today is Pink Shirt Day!

Hello Families,

I reminded the children yesterday that today is Pink Shirt Day, but forgot to post the reminder. We are encouraging all children to wear a pink shirt to school today (if they have one) to make a stand against bullying.

See you all soon!


Black Excellence Day

Hi families,

We will be observing Black Excellence Day on Monday, January 16th. Your child is encouraged to wear a black shirt on this day.

What is Black Excellence Day?

As a lead up to Black History Month, Black Excellence Day is a day to rejoice Black history and learn about Black stories, Black art and Black people, and a day to stand in solidarity with Black Canadians.

  • Black Excellence Day was created by Ninandotoo Society.
  • January 15th is in honour of the great civil rights leader, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. who was born on January 15, 1929.
  • The contributions of Black Canadians and the ongoing civil rights struggle of Black Canadians often go unacknowledged in our history books and school curriculum.
  • The term Black Excellence was born out of the civil rights movement in the 1960s.

At the Kindergarten level, we will be reading stories written by black authors and having class discussions.

If you have any questions, please let me know.

Ms. Quin
