Photo Re-Take and Sibling Day – Date Correction: November 18th is our photo re-take and sibling photo day. If you are requesting a re-take of your child’s photograph or a sibling photograph, we ask that you inform your child’s teacher prior to this day, so that they may be aware and support your child having the photo taken. Please note the correction. The previously communicated date of November 15th was in error.

Remembrance Day – Virtual Presentation: Although we are still not able to gather as a school, our students were able to participate in a Remembrance Day ceremony on November 11.
