What a winter! We hope everyone has finally dug themselves out of the massive amount of snow that was accumulated during last week's storm. The students have really enjoyed playing in the snow and on the huge hill that has been made in the yard, as well as making predictions and estimating how much snow actually fell.
Please note: the new Term 2 milk orders began last week. Some students who had previously been receiving milk are no longer getting it this term. If your child is no longer receiving milk, please have a conversation with them at home. Also, it may be a good idea to send in an extra drink they can have at lunch time.
The new pizza order will begin on March 1 - this week (Feb. 23) is the last pizza day for Term 1. Pizza orders are only being accepted through our Cash Online system. The deadline for orders for Term 2 has been extended to Wednesday, February 24. Please visit geo.ocsb.ca for information on how to use the Cash Online system.
As we head into this week, we have some important information to share. This week, Junglesport will be visiting Georges Vanier. This is a climbing and adventure program that allows students the opportunity to participate in climbing and rope course activities while under the supervision of trained instructors. All students will be provided with all of the safety equipment they need - helmets and, where appropriate, harnesses. Consent forms are available on the school website (geo.ocsb.ca) - parents are asked to print off the forms, sign and return to your child's teacher on Monday. More information about Junglesport can also be found on the website, but if you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact the school, or write a brief note in your child's note tote.
Also happening this week will be a bake sale put on by our school's Social Justice Club. On Wednesday, students will have the opportunity to purchase a treat for $1, with all proceeds going to support Free the Children initiatives supported by our school. If you would like your child to purchase something, please send in a loonie in a small ziploc style bag with your child's name on it.
