Well winter decided to surprise us this week but we are still smiling! If it caught you off-guard and needing to dig out the winter gear, you are not alone. Thanks for sending your child well-prepared to play outside for our 15 minute and 30 minutes recesses each day.

I know that as a parent it can get busy with many things to juggle and sometimes we need to get a message to our child(ren) while they are in school. If plans have changed during the day and you must get a message to your child, the secretaries will be happy to get the message to them. Likewise, if you have a question for the teacher or need to let them know something, the secretaries are happy to make sure they get the message and they will call you back. In the interest of protecting valuable learning time and to minimize disruptions, we will not put phone calls through to a classroom unless it is a dire emergency. Thank you for your understanding on this matter.

It’s the most wonderful time of the year for cookie lovers! Next week: Sept. 17-23 is Smile Cookie Week! Support the Red Deer Public Schools Reading College which helps improve grade 2 reading levels during a summer camp at RDC. We will be selling cookies (one per student) on Thursday, Sept. 20 but you can buy more at your local Tim Hortons!

I would like to thank the parents who came out to our first School Council meeting. What a great group of excited, passionate and committed parents. If you missed our first meeting, never fear, we have one every month and you are welcome to join us at any time. The next meeting is Tuesday, October 2 at 6:30 p.m. in the school library. This year, our fearless Council Chair is once again, Greg Williamson and our lovely Vice-Chair is Shara-Lee Holmes. Our fantastic Treasurer is Tina Kettle and our super-organized secretary is Kristina Schmidt. We have a great team assembled of fundraising super-stars: Krystal Mooney, Adrienne Buchanan, Mike Garland and Kyla Rollinson. Jody Ellis is continuing as our amazing Hot Lunch coordinator. Thank you to these wonderful parents for stepping up!

Have a wonderful week!
