Dear Families,

Thanks to all the families who attended PAC’s Halloween Family Dance last Friday night. It was wonderful to see so many kids out busting a move!

This Monday is our ‘soft’ start for the new Safe Arrival program at Arthur Stevenson. By now, you should have received an email from the Safe Arrival system with instructions for how to access the system and the steps you take to call in your child’s absence. Please begin using this system as soon as possible by calling in your child’s absence before 8:30 am.

Here are some reminders for this upcoming week:

1. Halloween is this Monday. Students are encouraged to dress up in orange and black for the day. No costumes please. There will be a Halloween Dance for students in grades 4 to 7 in the afternoon. Primary classes will have fun crafts and activities to do in the afternoon.

2. Please don’t send candy to school with your kids starting on Tuesday. A late night to start the week coupled with bursts of sugar could make for challenging days of school for our students.

3. Boys’ volleyball on Tuesday: Tier 1 team travels to RLC and tier 2 team travels to Juniper.

4. On Thursday our grade 7 leadership students are off to Vancouver for Me-to-We with Mr. Scott.

5. Girls’ volleyball on Thursday. Tier 1 game is cancelled. Tier 2 team hosts in our gym.

Have a terrific week!

Mr. Reilly
