Tuesday – tuck shop


๐ŸŽ Just a festive heads-up that we’ll be drawing names next week for the traditional ๐ŸŽ…๐Ÿ™Š Secret Santa gifty-exchange!

Here’s how it works:

Your child will draw the name of a fellow student in their class. They are not to tell anyone at the school who’s name they have picked.

Starting December 1st, a daily ‘Elf’ will be chosen to deliver some of the small gifts* and/or letters to random students.

*Note: Each child will need to to bring in three (3), very small, handmade or purchased ($1-$2.00) items or special letters, that are wrapped and addressed anonymously to the recipient. These gifts are then distributed over the 2 week period leading to the last day of school.

During the last week of November, there’ll be a basket and mailbox outside Mrs. H.’s office in which to deposit wrapped gifts/letters.

A final, larger gift ($10-ish) is then brought-in on the last day of school before the break, wrapped, and with a tag which also reveals the identity of the ‘giver’.

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask them as a comment here, or else speak to Mrs. Huntley.

WHA Friday

Scholastic orders are due Wednesday so that orders will be back in time for Christmas. If you want us to hold back some items from our kids so they can be from “Santa”, let Jen know. Remember that you can order online (and you get a free book if your order is over $30!); you don’t need to submit the paper form if you order online.

Field trip permission slips are also due Wednesday for Mrs. G and Mrs. H’s classes.

~ tuck shop today

Next Monday & Tuesday

~ grades 7 + 8s writing exams!

Students are encouraged to bring extra mitts and socks to school as dry spares!



Ok, so winter’s on its way! And thus students will need hats, mitts, boots, and snow-pants. Pro tip: Buying an extra pair of used snow pants to leave at school ‘may’ save you from hearing the dreaded “I left them at school!!” as you’re packing-up for a weekend ski-trip or similar. ๐Ÿ˜ฌ


~ NO pizza lunch

~ Field Trip for K-4s departs school after first period class. Students must wear school whites+grays along with WHA jacket and clean black shoes.

Most of this group requires carseats of some description, so please remember to leave these at the bottom of the stairs in the morning at drop-off!



๐ŸŒ–๐ŸŒ– Just 2 more sleeps until Hallowe’en!

Students are invited to bring their costume to school on Thursday… which (or is that witch!) they can change into after lunch.

Costumes need to be ‘active-friendly’ since games and activities are planned for the afternoon!

๐Ÿ•#ZaLunch on Friday for those who’ve ordered.

๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿปโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ™‹โ€โ™‚๏ธParent Volunteers needed for this Saturday’s Harry Potter event @uoguelph! Please contact Jen ASAP if you can help out!


๐ŸงFriYay – regular edition

A reminder to all students + parents…

Help support everyone’s learning by avoiding the interruptions to flag and start-of-class instructions caused when students arrive late.

The door at the top of the landing is locked at 8:20 – this is for security reasons as all staff attend flag ceremony at that time.

Next Thursday…

~ is Hallowe’en! ๐ŸŽƒ Students will bring costumes to change into after lunch!
