Last Day Pizza Lunch

Just a reminder that tomorrow is our annual Pizza in the Playground!

The weather does not seem to want to cooperate so it will be ‘Pizza in the Lunchroom’ instead!  Yay!  The JK/SK kids will keep to tradition and have pizza in their classrooms.

The School Council will provide pizza, freezies and bottles of water for a pizza party to celebrate the last day of school. So don’t forget to NOT pack the lunches tomorrow. (Maybe just an umbrella!)

Book Sale – Friday!

 

There will be a book sale at the school this Friday, June 23, during the lunch hour and after school. Some of the gently used books from the Spring Fling book table will be up for grabs and this is your last opportunity to buy them up – all books priced between $0.50-1.00!  All proceeds will go to Daycare and School extra- curricular programming and support.

CPR Training Workshop At Niagara

Wednesday June 21, 2017
School Library
6:00-7:30pm

FREE!

We are offering a workshop in CPR training just in time for summer. Before the swimming pools open for the season it would be well worth learning valuable life-saving skills don’t you think?

Niagara parent and Council Co-Chair, Peter Odle, is Red Cross certified and a former paramedic. He’ll be covering the following topics: CPR, Bleeding, Shock, Choking, Burns, Seizures, and Environmental Emergencies.

The workshop is a great opportunity to learn new skills or brush up on the ones you may have learned years ago.  All materials will be provided, refreshments will be served (bring the kids) and you’ll take home the knowledge and competence to save a life.

Space is limited to 20 people.  The sign-up sheet is located by the Council Bulletin Board to the left of the main entrance stairway.
