Hello Families,

Thank you to our amazing PAC for hosting a super fun Welcome Back BBQ last Thursday. It was great to see so many families!

Here are some reminders for this week:

1. Tuesday morning is Raise-a-Reader in Kamloops. Our school will have a parent volunteering to sell newspapers to families as kids are dropped off at school in the morning. Please donate what you can. All proceeds go to Literacy programs in the Kamloops area. 

2. Our Terry Fox Run is Tuesday afternoon starting at 1:45. Please join us if you can, as it is always helpful to have lots of adult eyes available when 300 students are going for a run. Please ensure that you have signed your child's walking permission slip to ensure your child can participate in the run. As well, we are asking families to bring in a "Toonie for Terry" if possible. All proceeds go to the Terry Fox Foundation. 

3. On Wednesday we hold our Cross Country Run at Westsyde Centennial Park, starting at 3:15. If you are able to help out, please let Mrs. Hawkings or Mr. Scott know.

4. On Thursday and Friday, students will be dismissed at 12:30 as both these days are early closure days to accommodate parent teacher meetings. If you have not heard from your child's teacher, please contact your child's teacher to organize a meeting. Please note that this meeting is more of a meet and greet in which teachers can talk about how your child is settling in to classroom routines and what kind of program/learning your child will be involved in this year. 

5. We will have our September Recognition Assembly at 8:45 Friday morning. Classroom teachers will be in contact with the parents of students being recognized. 

Have a great week!

Mr. Reilly
