Noon Hour Programs; the Fun Continues! – Enrolment Opens Tomorrow
Spring is right around the corner and with the change in season comes a change in Noon Hour Programming! There are some wonderful new activities to choose from as well as the old favourites. (Unfortunately, Janine the Jenius cannot return this term, but we’re hopeful she will be back in September) Your child should’ve brought home the new program schedule. It can also be found in the foyer displayed on the wall. This term, registration has been split over two days: Monday, February 27th & Tuesday, February 28th. Please see the full spring flyer HERE! If you have any concerns, questions or suggestions for programming, please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
Here’s what NEW this session for Noon Hour programs:
1. Two-day registration- We are introducing a two-day registration process this time around. We are hoping this process will make it easier for families with 2 or more children to register for the courses they want as well as lessen the pressure on our software. These classes sell out fast! You must pay for your child’s class at the time of registration in order to secure their spot.

Scholastic Book Fair – March 8th & 9th – We Need You!
The Scholastic Book Fair is a fun event that provides resources needed for our library. Last year we raised over $4000 in purchasing power for the library. Way to GO! That is essentially 1 free book for every 2 sold.
We are looking to assemble a team of volunteers for the shifts listed below. Duties include taking payment, directing high school volunteers and replenishing books at the tables as they sell.
Below are the shifts we are hoping to fill, please feel free to sign up for more than one and bring a friend! You can sign up directly here Please note this fair takes place during the student lead conferences.
Thank you in advance for your help. Everyone who volunteers at the school gets invited to Mme. Ellie’s famous strawberry tea at year end so it’s well worth it! (she makes the best homemade Belgian scones, Mmm, Mm!)
