Voyageurs News – October 31st
NOVEMBER 1st PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT DAY
The school will be classed for students on November 1st for Professional Development.
PARENT MEETING DATES
Our student-parent-teacher meeting nights are on November 5th and 6th. Times have been confirmed with your child’s teacher(s). Please contact your child’s teacher if you need clarification.
INDOOR SHOES & LOCKERS
All students need indoor shoes suitable for use in the gym and for wearing around the inside of the school. Please take a moment when you come to the school for conferences to have a look at your child’s indoor shoes to make sure they are in good condition.
Additionally, if your child uses a locker, please have a look in your child’s locker to check for organization and tidiness.
Proper nutrition is important for all of our students to provide them with energy for their day at school. We have been noticing a number of older students not eating during the school day.
Teachers have been asked to email parents when a student comes to school without a lunch to make sure parents are aware of the situation and arrange supports or strategies if needed.
PIZZA & BEIGNETS SALES
We have groups of students who have created businesses in the school as part of special leadership projects. On most Thursdays students will sell 12″ donair pizzas for $5.00 each at lunch and New Orleans style beignets/donuts at the end of the day for $1.00 each. Supplies are limited and should not be relied upon as a lunch. As the students learn to manage the budgets, prices might change. All profits go towards purchases that benefit all students in the school.
Due to the school closure on Thursday, there will not be any pizza and beignet sales this week. Sales will resume next week.
