Steve Harmer coming to Botha soon

Students and staff will be attending the magician Nov. 22

Tomorrow report cards will be sent home with your child’s, then on Nov. 23 is going to be parent/teachers interviews, so please keep this in mind and phone the school and find out what time your is, so you both can discuss your child progress so far this year. Also they will be doing the School Wide Project in the p.m. Then Friday following this there will be no school, so all students will enjoy a day off.

Prior to this on Nov. 21, the Grade 5/6 class will be having their Junior Achievement visit. Then Nov. 22, all students and staff will be heading to Erskine for the Country Presentation with Steve Harmer (the motivated magician). This sounds like fun, so if any parent would like to come along for this fun trip, please contact the school and let them know. This would very much be appreciated, and you can ride along on the bus with the students if you like. They all love it when parents participate in their field trips.

Some excited news and very much appreciated but starting Nov. 13, the government has given a nutrition grant for milk to be provided daily for all students free of charge, so this is excellent.

Nov. 26, head over to the Botha Hall at 1:30 p.m. for the Christmas dance with the Old Tyme Dance Club. The “Sparkling Tones” band will be the entertaining band that afternoon, so make sure you come and join in the fun. They hold a potluck at 5p.m. so they are asking everyone who attends to either bring sandwiches/buns, salads or desert to share at this luncheon. Thank you.

On December 4, there will be the very important monthly meeting for the seniors. So hopefully all seniors will be able to attend. These start at 12 noon sharp.

Quilting happens on Monday 27, starting at 9:30 a.m. sharp, so come and join in the group.

The school staff and parents would like to send a big thank you out to ATCO for supplying a bucket/picker to assist our students in the egg dropping challenge, this was very much appreciated. The students had a great time at this challenge.

Also a big thank you to the Legion for sending out a member(s) to talk to the students, at their Remembrance Day Ceremonies which was held on Wednesday 8.

This Friday will be the last day that you can send something (shoe boxes) to the school for the “Christmas Child Program” so if you have anything to donate make sure it gets sent in tomorrow morning please, as these boxes or money gets shipped out tomorrow for this special case. A big thank you goes out to everyone who participated in this special program, truly appreciated.

Looking for a great hall to hold your special events in please call Shaun Derr at 403-742-4811 and reserve your spot now.

Nov. 16, tonight, there will be the 10a Board Meeting, so hopefully everyone can attend these important meetings.
