    Happy Mother’s Day to all the Arthur Stevenson Moms!


    Dear Families,


    Here are some reminders for this week.


    1. There is no school for students on Monday (15th), as the school is closed for students for the final Professional Development Day of the school year.


    2. Please return all Jump Rope 4 Heart pledge sheets as soon as possible, the pledge forms will be sent away this week.


    3. Pasta hot lunch orders are due back to the school on Wednesday. Hot lunch is next Friday, May 26th.


    4. Zone Track Meet at Hillside Stadium is this Friday (19th). The track meet is all day, so students need to dress for changes in the weather and ensure they have ample food and water. There is a concession available to participants at Hillside Stadium.


    5. If your child has qualified for the Zone Track Meet, please return your child’s permission slip as soon as possible, this is a quick turnaround and we have around 80 students who qualified, so the quicker we can be sure of who is attending the easier the organization for the teachers taking the students.


    6. Next Monday is the Victoria Day holiday, so the school will be closed.  


    Have an outstanding week!


    Mr. Reilly
