Good Afternoon, Parents!
What a fabulous concert our students put on! I am so proud of each and every one of them…Congratulations also to the new members of Knight Lights, who experienced the thrill of their first performance. What a delight!
Looking ahead to this week, tomorrow is our annual CHRISTMAS EVE CHAPEL. Students are invited to dress up in their coziest pajamas (teddy bears included) for a fun celebration of Christmas.
On Tuesday morning, we’ll be having our class party. As a part of our celebration, we’ll be making an edible nativity craft. If you haven’t already sent in three dollars to contribute to the cost of this, please remember to do so tomorrow morning. Parents are also invited to send in some snacks for our party. Students will need to be picked up at 12:00 pm, and school will officially be finished for 2011!
The first day of school in the new year will be Tuesday, January3, 2012. Keep an eye out for our first blog entry of the new year.
God Bless each and every one of you. I wish you all the best as you take time with your families to enjoy the blessings that surround us.
It is hard to believe, but we are entering our last full week of school before the holidays. As much as possible, please try to maintain nightly reading and homework routines, as we will continue regular testing until the end of the week.
There will be an extra rehearsal for the Knight Lights on Monday, December 12th, from 3-4 pm. This is to ensure that we are ready for the upcoming concerts. This will be in addition to our Thursday practise, which will be held upstairs in the sanctuary. For all new members, I have ordered t-shirts which will arrive on Wednesday (phew!!!). Please send in $10.00 for these as soon as possible.
Our Class party will be held on Tuesday morning, December 20th. I will be purchasing candy for the decorating of a nativity scene. There will be a $3.00 charge for this, so please send this with your children by Wednesday, December 14 th. Any “nutritious” treats you’d like to send in for our party (crackers/cheese, clementines, fruit, muffins, etc.) would be greatly appreciated. Junk food is also accepted :)
You’ll find our newsletter attached below. Please be sure to read it carefully for extra details and information regarding our Christmas concert.

Enjoy these busy days!
This week, we will continue to practise for our Christmas musical, “The Signs of Christmas”. Your children have brought home small speaking parts that they will need to have memorized as soon as possible. Thank you for your support in this. We will be presenting this musical again for the residents of the Prince Edward Home on Thursday, December 15 at 10:30am. Drivers will be needed.
Miss Farrer’s class will be sponsoring a family this Christmas, and in support of this outreach, they will be hosting two events this week: a BAKE SALE on Tueday and a HOT DOG SALE on Friday. Wednesday’s hot lunch option is PIZZA.
Forms will be sent home for these events at the beginning of the week.
