Louise Bellair Botha Booster

On Sept 5, school restarted again for the 2017/18 School year, with some exciting staff and students to get back to learning again and spending time with their friends. The staff would like to welcome both students and parents back for another year of learning and they hope everyone had a great summer. Parents are always welcome to stop by and to help out with some activities. So with Staff and parents working together it will be one fantastic year for the students. Mr. Fligar (the principal) sent out e-mail handbooks to all the parents, so please refer back to these if you have any questions or phone the school and they will be happy to answer any questions you might have. According to the newsletter they will be holding four meetings this year for both staff and parents to attend, and notices will be sent out prior to these, so please keep an eye open for these. At the end of Sept the students will be given a “preliminary learning report” to fill out and four times per year report cards are sent home with your child, so please after looking at these sign them and send them back with your child. Every night the child will be coming home with some homework (not much) and these will be written down in their agendas, so parents please take the time to read these agendas and sign them every night. Thank you. With Parents and Staff we will make a successful year for your student.

Attention all Drivers: Starting Sept 5th, the School Speed limits will be back into effect, so please slow down and watch for our children as they hurry to and from school.

This passed Tuesday was the first Senior Meeting for this upcoming year, and these meetings are usually held the first Monday of every month starting at 12 noon.

They are hoping all seniors will be able to attend, so please mark these down on your calendars

Quilting starts up again this coming Monday 11th, starting at 9:30 a.m. at the Senior Centre. Everyone is more than welcome to attend, even if you have never quilted before, please come as they would love to teach you this special craft. Quilting days are usually held the second and last Monday of each month.
