Peace Island Park

Wednesday, 28. June 2017 by Doreen McDonell

We have decided to stay at the school for our AMAZING RACE competition. At about 11am, we will make a decision about bussing to Peace Island Park. This could be for lunch and afternoon activities, just afternoon activities or not at all. We will post it here when our decision is made. So sorry for any inconvenience but we want to give the students all the options without being too hasty.

Ski Trip Tomorrow March 14

Monday, 13. March 2017 by Doreen McDonell

Final Ski Trip Reminders

We are all looking forward to the ski trip on Tuesday, March 14. Here are a few final reminders.

• Students must be at the school at 7:30 a.m. to load the buses. The bus will leave at 7:45 a.m. Students who are not here at that time will be left. Parents who are driving to the hill may come to the school first or go right to the hill. Please ensure we know that you are taking your child if you are going directly to the hill. Mrs. M’s text # 250-794-8930. A reminder that the hill is on Alberta time.

• Dress in layers, and make sure your attire is appropriate for the weather conditions. Wearing or bringing extra layers that can be put on or off if it gets colder or warmer is essential. Do not wear a scarf, a neck tube is more appropriate. Please make sure you label all of your belongings.

• Bring sunglasses or ski goggles, sunscreen, and an extra pair of mittens.

• Remember helmets are mandatory, so bring one or be prepared to rent one.

• Do not bring valuables, including ipods, iphones, or ipads. We cannot be responsible for their safety.

• Use the garbage cans on the bus. Students will be asked to ensure the bus is clean before getting off at Whispering Pines or back at Taylor Elem.

• Pack a lunch and some extra snacks. Put any money you bring in a zippered pocket. Do not bring a lunch that requires a microwave.

• Thank you to all parents who have volunteered to go on the trip. Teachers attending the trip will be Mr. Brownlee, Mrs. Austin, Ms. Maddocks, Mrs. Taillefer, Ms. Gould (grade ¾ student teacher) and Mrs. McDonell.

• The bus is expected to return to Taylor around 5:00 p.m. Please ensure you have made arrangements and your child knows to walk home or be picked up. Students have been told that they need to know how they are going home before they leave in the morning.

• Clearview will be on the hill at the same time so all students will be wearing small ribbons on their helmets, similar to a few years ago, so that parent helpers can help keep track of our kidlets.

Thanks and let’s have a fun day!
