Looking for your next cup of coffee after drop-off? The second monthly Trafalgar coffee morning will be held tomorrow, Monday October 3rd from 9-10 AM in the school’s activity room and will be hosted by the grade 1 and 2 parents. This is a great way to start your day and meet and chat with other parents. A big thank you to Lily Jiang for championing this initiative.

Noon Hour Programs Start Tomorrow

A reminder if your child is registered in one of the noon hour programs, they begin tomorrow at 12:20 until the bell rings at 12:57. The programmers will be arranging guides to ensure the students registered get to their respective programs, but you may want to remind your children if they have a session to go to so they’ll be sure not to miss it.

Little Monsters Ball – We Need You!

Do you love Halloween? Are you one of those people who has more boxes of Halloween decorations than Christmas ones? Do you come to the door in costume and reply “Trick!” to  “Trick or Treat!”? Then you could be the volunteer(s) we are looking for. This year we are searching for a “Volunteer Leader” to coordinate the Monsters Ball volunteers and we of course are looking for other Halloween-loving parents and guardians to volunteer to  run the fun and games at the Monsters Ball. Please contact  if you are interested in the volunteer leader or any other Monsters Ball volunteer posts. A huge Happy Halloween Thank You! In advance.

Thursday is EarthBites day at Trafalgar. Every Thursday in October from 2:30 – 3:15 PM there will be a pocket market.
