Jack Frost is here and it is very important that the students are dressed for winter weather every day.  Please remember hats, mitts, boots, snowpants and winter coats.  If possible, please consider sending your child to school with mittens instead of gloves.  Mittens will better protect their fingers from the cold, and they are easier for students to manage when dressing for outdoors. 

 We would like to begin inviting parents into our program to read a story to the class or to join us during centres.  Students enjoy having their parents at school with them, and when parents are actively involved with school activities, students realize the importance of education.  If you are interested in reading a story to the class or joining us during centres, please fill out the form at the bottom of the newsletter and return it in the note tote.

We will be celebrating Valentine’s Day with the students on February 14th.  Students are welcome to bring treats to share with the class or cards to give to friends.  Please remember that all food must be peanut-free.  If students are bringing cards, we ask that students sign each card with their own name, but there is no need to address each card.  This will make it easier for us to pass them out in a timely fashion.  Teachers will be wearing red, white and pink to celebrate this day, and students are invited to do so as well. 

Prince Edward will be hosting a Numeracy Night on February 15th.  This is an opportunity for parents to visit the school to learn more about math activities that can be used at home to further promote students’ math skills.  Students and parents will visit primary classrooms. 
The kindergarten classrooms will only be open for new students that are registering for September 2012.  Come on out to learn more about MATH…… and what you can do to help your child succeed.   More details to follow.

Kindergarten registration will also take place on February 15th.  All children born in the year 2008 are invited to Prince Edward on February 15th to learn more about our program and to register for the 2012 school year.  More details to follow.   

Please remember that parent teacher interviews will take place on the evening of February 9th, and that there will no school for students on February 10th.  There is also no school on February 20th because this is Family Day. 

We will celebrate the 100th day of school on the 17th of February.  Students are asked to bring in a collection of 100 items... marbles, elastics, cheerios.... whatever suits your family.
