Dear Parents

It’s March and Spring is in the air! We hope that you had a great break.  Please be sure to check the weather and have your child dressed appropriately for the day….it is going to get wet and muddy out there very soon.  It is an exciting time for the Grade 6s, with visits to the high schools and Open Houses this month.

As part of this month’s theme of Integrity, we are celebrating the week of March 16-20th as Kindness Week.  We are challenging students with some activities that focus on being kind to each other and build each other up and talking about having safe people at school when they need help.

Be sure to check out the blog updates on the Roots of Empathy program at:
