We are getting ready to say goodbye to November and welcome the month of December. We had a very successful lockdown drill yesterday morning. Our students and staff followed all our procedures well.
Students in grade 6 have been learning about design and flight as part of their science curriculum objectives. This week, all grade 6 students were able to enjoy a wonderful presentation by Mr. Eshaya, a pilot and volunteer from the Department of National Defence who came to share his first-hand knowledge and brought artifacts to enhance our students’ learning experiences. Being able to connect the curriculum with real-life applications is always so beneficial.
Review of immunization records for students at SLPS from Ottawa Public Health: OPH will be sending letters to parents beginning on November 24th if their child’s records are not up-to-date. A suspension from school may be issued in January 2016 if a student’s record remains incomplete. Parents who receive a letter requesting immunization information can contact OPH by phone at 613-580-6744 or submit immunization information online, by fax, by mail or by the ImmunizeCA app. Parents can visit parentinginottawa.ca/immunization for more details about how to submit their child’s immunization information to Ottawa Public Health. For more information please read Ottawa Public Health information
A message from parent council: The Holiday Gift Shop is Coming! Each year, School Council hosts the Holiday Gift Shop for students in Grades 1-3. This exciting program enables children to purchase their own special holiday gifts for family and friends. The shop will be held during school hours on Tuesday, December 8 to Thursday, December 10. All gifts will be moderately priced from $0.50 – $10.00. The majority of items are priced in the $3 – $5 range. Some of the items that will be available to purchase include jewellery, fun gadgets, plush toys, and coffee mugs. This is a great experience for students, as it allows them to purchase gifts by themselves, so their purchases remain secret from those who would normally have to take them to a store. A note will be sent home with more details in the coming week. Parent volunteers needed! Like all activities organized, the Holiday Gift Shop can only succeed with parent volunteers. Please consider signing up for this event: www.SignUpGenius.com/go/904094CA9AD2CA13-holiday
