VIRTUE OF THE MONTH
For the month of February we will be focusing on the virtue of respect. Respect is displayed in a variety of ways and ties in with a lot of other virtues. We will be promoting respect of self, respect of others, and respect of our environments. At the end of the month we will be participating in Pink Shirt Day – a day devoted to stoping bullying. This event gives us an opportunity to speak with students on how being respectful allows for us to build friendships.
Your child(ren) re-registration package was sent home last Friday, January 29th.
Re-registration will be held one day only, THURSDAY, FEBRUARY 18TH, 8:00am – 7:00pm in the school library. Please ensure that all forms have been completed and that all cheques are included.
