Welcome back and Happy New Year! I hope that everyone in our school community had a wonderful holiday break and that 2013 is filled with good health and prosperity. Thank you to those of you who kindly donated Canadian Tire Money in the weeks leading up to the Christmas break as your generosity made a difference for many families within our community. A special thanks goes out to Cameron Maly who raised over $100 all by herself. Just prior to Christmas I travelled to the Canadian Tire in Lindsay with four of our grade 5 students where we made toy purchases and later dropped them off to a local community agency who in turn distributed them to those in need.
We are looking forward to another successful term with your child and continue to strive for improvement particularly in the areas of reading, writing, and mathematics. We believe that all children can learn and achieve and we will do our part to uphold this belief. Please continue to communicate with us via the student agendas. Students are expected to record their homework assignments each day so parents are made aware of what their child is doing and how he/she is progressing. Students are responsible for taking their work home, completing it, and returning it every day. We really value our partnership and realize the school, the family, and the community must work together as a united team to promote success in our students!
