Hot Dogs on Fall Colour Dress-Up Day

On October 28, one of our fabulous local business’, Fraser Valley Roofing, has graciously agreed to sponsor a Hot Dog Day for our students. At lunch time, the food truck will be here to hand out hot dogs to our entire school! Each child will receive one hot dog and one bag of chips free of charge. Students do not need to sign up or send anything to receive the hot dog or chips. If students do not wish to have a hot dog, they should bring their regular lunch and let me know that they will not be having a hot dog on the day of the event. This should be a fun day as it is also Fall Colour Dress-up Day for our students!

 

Thanks to Fraser Valley Roofing for putting on this event for our school!

Student Photo Day tomorrow, Friday, September 18

Hello Parents,

Please have students wear their full dress uniform tomorrow for photo day. Knight Days will resume next Friday.

Since it is healthier to be outside than inside, we need students to be ready for the rain. Please send them with umbrellas or rain gear when it is rainy so they can be outside for recess and afterschool pickup.

Thank you
