St. Nicholas CES Halloween Dance-a-thon
As you are aware our annual Halloween Dance-a-thon will take place on October 31st. Thank you to all the parent volunteers who are coordinating this event. Additionally, thanks in advance to any member of our community who has/will be generous enough to support us. We’re looking forward to a Spooktacular day!
On Monday, October 29th all students from JK – 8 will participate in bus evacuation training.
Parent Student Teacher Conferences
Our annual parent/student/teacher conferences are scheduled for November 8th from 4 to 8 pm. Again, this year parents will be able to sign up electronically via stnicholas.schoolappointments.com . If you’re unable to secure a conference for that evening please touch base with your child’s teacher to set up another time or a phone conversation. Registration will open at midnight tonight.
Not certain how to register? Please see the attached instructions. Feel free to call Mrs. Strong if you need further assistance.
Remembrance Day Ceremony
This year Remembrance Day is on Sunday, November 11th. At St. Nicholas, we would still like to honour and remember those who have given so much, so that we can enjoy the freedoms we have today. We would like to invite you to join us for our Remembrance Day Ceremony on Monday, November 12th. Please stay tuned for an exact time.
We’re looking for a parent volunteer who might be able to assist in a back up role for our ESNS daily lunch distribution. If you might be available between 11:40 am and 12:10 pm with two to three days’ notice, please let Mrs. Strong know.
Traffic Flow/Travel Planning
We are in the process of working with our transportation department on our traffic flow concerns within our parking lot and on the surrounding streets. We’re looking for two or three parents who might be interested in sitting on a committee. If you’re interested, please let Mrs. Strong know.
Photo retakes will take place on November 15th in the morning.
Please remember to call 519.884.9198 to let us know about your child’s absence. The machine operates 24 hours a day. Feel free to leave us a message if the office hasn’t opened for that day.
