Thank You!

Thank you to the parents, staff, students, and BMO helpers, who helped to fill many of our community garden beds on Saturday. What teamwork!!
However, we did run out of dirt so we will need to do some more work to fill the beds so that the students can plant 🙂

A big thank you to the Matson family who not only helped all morning but brought us the extremely useful ramp for the wheelbarrows!

Students off to District Speech Contest

We would like to wish Venice Aspi, Travis English, and Braxton McCoy, good luck at the district speech contest next Thursday. We were treated to 15 excellent speeches at our school level and I know that our judges had some really tough choices to make because of it.

Winter, winter, winter

As the weather continues to challenge us, please help your child to dress appropriately for the weather with coats, toques, mitts, and boots. As well, it is helpful to send a change of clothes in their back pack in case of a slip or fall.

It looks like it may be wet and slippery for some time yet. As well, our lost and found bins are already filling up so please take a look if you are missing any items.
