We were told on Groundhog Day this week that we may have a short winter - even so this week has been cool & breezy out on the playground. We had a good turn out for Chess Club this week and our Breakfast Club has been well attended - maybe because of the cool weather. Please remind your children that we are not finished with winter & they still need to bring their mittens, gloves & hats to stay warm on the playground
Good luck to our teachers in Primary for their Skate-a-thon. Parents are welcome to come watch & cheer on our little skaters!
