Curriculum Night (Thursday, September 22)
Please join us anytime after 5:00pm and enjoy pizza and water provided by our Parent Council. The classroom visits will begin at 6:30 and again at 7:00 and will end at 7:30. The purpose of curriculum night is for you to meet your child’s teachers, hear about the main features of the curriculum and learn about the school day and classroom routines. We look forward to seeing you.
FALL FEST – SATURDAY, OCT 22nd
Our annual Fall Fest will be on Saturday, October 22nd, from 11am to 3pm, at school. For over 30 years we have kicked off the school year with this family & friend orientated day. This year again we hope our children, friends and neighbours of all ages will enjoy the many fun events of the day including Bouncy Castles, Obstacles Course, Carnival Games, Haunted House, Treasure Baskets, Face Painting, Book Sale, Cotton Candy, Delicious Food & Drinks, and much more!
In the coming weeks, please look out for notices on the school blog, emails from parent council, and handouts in your children’s agendas detailing the various ways you can participate.
For more information and/or to volunteer your time at any level of commitment for this annual school tradition, please contact Shan Collins, Fall Fest Chair, at: firstname.lastname@example.org. Additionally, we are grateful to Shan Collins who will be running this event for the third year, and we are actively seeking a parent volunteer to partner with Shan Collins to Co-chair this event this year and lead it next year.

Message from Mrs. Robertson
If any family in our Courcelette family has a small loveseat that they are throwing out/ recycling… please consider donating it to our Library! It would be awesome if it was bonded leather or leather for wiping, but anything would be appreciated! Many thanks for your consideration.
Mrs. Robertson, teacher-librarian
