    Lost and Found
    by Heather Scollon - Friday, 16 November 2018, 12:04 PM

    Lost and foundThe amount of clothing in our lost and found is HUGE!  We have reorganized the four tier shelf into a new lower system that the kids can all reach.  May we please ask you that add your child's name to their coats, boots, shoes etc etc...

    We've had this long line of coats spread in the hallway for a day so kids can be reunited with their valuable things.  We will not be able to store or manage this volume for long periods, it will be sent to thrift periodically.  Please come and have a look.Lost and found 2

    VolunteersWe are seeking any parents or grandparents who may be willing to share some skills with our students at lunch time!  These indoor 'clubs' could include card games, board games, lego, chess, checkers, art, crafts, story telling, creative writing, cooking, juggling, sign language, knitting, and so much more!  
    If you have an hour to spend once per month or so please pop in to the office and fill out a school volunteer form!  We do require a criminal record check at no cost to you!
    Thanks so much!
