Scorpion Sizzle – November 2, 2018

Halloween

The spirit was high at St. Andrew’s on Halloween! We worked hard all day, and played hard during break, with a costume contest, some teacher/student fun and a Thriller dance! The creativity on the costumes was amazing! A special shout out to our Student Council for planning the fun and our incredible choreographers and dancers who stepped up and led us all in a dance! #scorpionfun

Street Safety

Our priority is to ensure student safety. We are asking you to join us and speak with your child(ren) about the rules of the road. We have received a couple of calls from concerned neighbours about students walking in the middle of the roads, near the bus stops – after school. Please remind your child how important it is to stay safe. Please review all safety measures they can be taking as they venture out with their peers.

Homeroom teachers will be having these discussions as well. Working as partners with you will allow for students to hear the same message from everyone.

Drop off and Pick Up

We thank those who are abiding by the street signs in the neighbourhood. Please remember you cannot stop or stand on Fenn Ave., in front of the school. There are municipal street signs that state no standing.If you are dropping your child off by car, or picking them up by car it is important that you have a meeting spot, for them, that is a short distance from the school. We appreciate your cooperation with this matter.
