April showers... bring snow??

Hi everyone,

So, we aren't getting the April showers we expected, but we ARE hoping for May flowers! Students are encouraged to remember to wear clothing that is appropriate for the weather/conditions of the field. 

A note from our office:  you may have received a phone call from the school today to let you know about our newsletters.  They will no longer be coming home in hard copy (for those of you who have not opted for e-mail), and will be available on the Fieldcrest website.  If you would like your email address added to the list of people who receive the newsletter via email, please let me know and I will forward your information to the office.

DARE is wrapping up next week!  Officer Rob Enwright, our School Resource Officer, has been visiting us on a regular basis to speak to our students about decision making and bullying.  Please follow up with your child about these discussions, as they have learned a lot over the last few months!  We will be making an announcement soon about DARE graduation, so stay tuned!

We have a fieldtrip on the horizon - on May 3, we will be visiting Ste Marie Among the Hurons to learn more about how some of Canada's First Nations People lived.  Permission forms went home this week, and we are asking to have them back by April 12.

Congratulations to our students who have made it onto the Basketball teams this term.  Please make sure to review the athletic contract that your child brought home if he/she is a member of one of these teams.  I would also like to extend a congratulations and a "well-done" pat on the back to those students who tried out and did not make the teams - keep a positive mindset and try again next year!! You'll get there!

We have PINK SHIRT DAY coming up this Wednesday, April 11! Thank you to our students who have dressed in support of our other "shirt/sock" days recently, and we hope that you'll participate in this one as well!

A last, friendly reminder, our school day goes from 9:15am to 3:35pm - we would love to have your children here for the duration of the day, as arriving late and leaving early interrupts their learning (and others, as we have frequent phone calls in the morning and afternoon for late arrivals and early dismissals, which, in turn, interrupts the learning of all other students in the class).  When possible, we ask that your child attends a full day of school :)

Have a great weekend!
Mrs. Skelton Wright :)
