The early reviews for our traffic circle are quite positive. The re-located crosswalk seems to be simplifying the process for everyone and helping to maintain a steady flow of traffic. Despite the early success, we ask that you still consider the following:
- have your child walk or wheel to school every day
- drop off your intermediate child at either the path on Grove Avenue or at the parking lot near the Hawthorne Park tennis courts
- do not leave your car unattended in the roundabout
- watch carefully for guidance from our adult and student crossing guards
- do not park in the staff parking lot between 8:30-9am
Thank you in advance for your attention to these points. Through our collective efforts we are working to make the traffic circle as safe as possible for our students.
PARENT / TEACHER CONFERENCES
Parents are reminded that they can call in tomorrow (Friday, Oct. 11th) from 9am-noon and 1- 3:45pm to book your conference(s) time. We will be hosting our conferences on Wednesday, Oct. 23rd and Thursday, October 24th and this will result in an early dismissal on both days (2pm).
RECREATION PASSES CORRECTION
We would like to make a correction on some information that was provided in our previous blog entry. As of last year, Delta Council expanded the Recreation Pass Program and the municipality is now offering a free year pass for both grade 5 and grade 6 students. They are also providing 10 free passes for grade seven students. To obtain a pass, families can visit a Delta Recreation Centre and present proof of birth date and residency in Delta.
SCHOLASTIC BOOK FAIR
Mrs. Ratzlaff will once again be hosting a book fair in the library on Oct. 23 and 24. We are in need of volunteers to assist with this event and you can contact Mrs. Ratzlaff directly (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you are able to help. Thank you in advance for your support.
FAMILY HARVEST BOXES
You are invited to visit a farm to see where food comes from, learn how to plant, harvest and prepare fresh produce. The Earthwise society has also developed a program to support families in need. Family members can "work" the farm in exchange for a Family Harvest Box. This program is coordinated by The Delta Food Coalition and you can find more information at the following link: http://earthw.primesignal.com/index.php/partnership/delta-food-coalition/.
