Scholastic Book Fair:   Exciting news  - from sales on Friday we made $300 for our library! 

Remember that you can join us online with our Virtual Book Fair Extension! 

• The Virtual Book Fair Extension will be available online from Dec. 2 – Dec. 11.  
• With the Virtual Book Fair Extension there is no minimum order and no shipping costs, as all orders are shipped directly to the school!  
• Scholastic has told us that, while there are no guarantees, they will do their best to get all books ordered to the school before our holiday break. 

Community Input Requested:  The Department of Education and Early Childhood Development has launched a public engagement on strengthening local voice in our education system. This is a great opportunity to enhance our connection with communities and ensure we are putting students in the best position to be successful. The survey and virtual townhall (ThoughtExchange) can be found at: https://www.ednet.ns.ca/consultations

PTA Meeting:  There is a PTA meeting tonight, Dec. 5, at 6:00 to discuss the Holiday Bazaar.

Concert Tickets:  Each family will be receiving 2 tickets for their child’s concert.  Due to fire regulations, the gym can only have a set number of people, but there will be an opportunity to request extra tickets -  stayed tuned!
