What a great first day at Canadian Martyrs! Thanks to the efforts of Mrs. Van Bargen and our parent volunteers at our “Sneak Peek Event”, we were able to get all 352 Crusaders safely to their classrooms in time for “O’Canada”. Please remember that we are a 9:10am school and we need all of our students in class. Please help us and get your children to school on time.
At lunch time today our grade 4 and 4/5 classes taught me a thing or two about “garbage-less lunches”. We had all 53 students eat in the library and NOTHING was thrown out! They have a thing or two to share about how to shop to reduce lunch garbage – Way to go Junior’s! Please remember that we will be focused on our Eco-initiatives this year and we will be having “boomerang lunches”, we will be “banning the bottle”, eliminating plastic utensils and recycling and composting in each class.
In the afternoon, I had the chance to visit our classrooms and see so many great first day activities! 3 things you want your teacher to know about you…an interesting spin on getting to know each other! So much learning was already happening on day 1! What an exciting beginning!
Please remember parents, that your opportunity to see our new renovations will be Wednesday, September 12, 2018 at our Annual “Meet the Teacher Night”. “Remember Me Family” will be on hand to cater the event. Hot Dog and Hamburger Combos will be available for $7.00. This will include a pop and a bag of chips. Come and eat together from 4:30 – 5:30 and then visit the classrooms and tour the school from 5:00 – 6:30!
We look forward to seeing all of you there and we look forward to a great second day at Canadian Martyrs!
