Remembrance Day Assembly
Our Remembrance Day Assembly was amazing. Our gym looked beautiful with all of the creative and colourful student artwork. Our grade 6 and 7 student Hosts ~ Karina, Prabhakum, Manjot, Rebecca, Raina, Shreyan, Dhiya and Aleena did an excellent job in helping us to remember why we are able to enjoy freedom in Canada. Lylah in grade 7 started us off with the Traditional Aboriginal Welcome. Kyaija led us through the singing of, “O Canada”. Our classes that performed did so with confidence and feeling. Our grade Ones recited the poem, “Hug O War” . Students from Division One recited the famous poem, “In Flanders Fields”. Our grade Threes sang a beautiful rendition of , “Imagine”. We watched, “A Pittance of Time” a short music DVD, that reminded us how important it is for us to remember our Canadian heroes who fought and continue to fight in wars past and present. Our final performance was a touching song sung by Divisions 8 and 9 “ Heal the World“. Special thank you to all staff who helped their students prepare for this assembly, and Mr. Poon for all his technical support. Thank you to all of our students who were so well behaved throughout our entire assembly. Check out our Facebook page for photos and videos.

Cold and Flu Bugs are here…
COLDS and the FLU are going around…
Please keep your children home if they are not feeling well and…remember to review with your children how to wash their hands. It is recommended that we wash for 20 seconds before rinsing and drying off. It’s the best way to avoid getting sick!
Serving healthy snacks to children is important to providing good nutrition along with supporting lifelong healthy eating habits. A snack during our recess break is very important for your children. Some children are coming to the office saying they have a lunch but no snack. Please remember to send a nutritious recess snack with your child everyday.

How much sleep should my child get?
We are often asked this question. As parents we know sleep is VERY important for everyone. Children need sleep to keep them healthy and doing their best! Sleep helps our body and brain develop and grow. But how much sleep do our children need? According to the National Sleep Foundation,
children ages 5 – 12
need 10 – 11 hours of sleep each night.
When you get enough sleep you can:
- Pay attention better in school
- Be creative and think of new ideas
- Fight sickness so you stay healthy
- Be in a good mood
- Get along with friends and family
- Solve problems better
