I am so excited to share my newsletter with you on my new blog! Hello, my name is Aj Dhaliwal and I am your child’s teacher for this school year. I wanted to let you know that eye exams are FREE for children 12 and under. Once children are attending school, yearly eye exams are recommended. Please feel free to send a water bottle with your child to school. It is nice for the children to be able to drink whenever they feel thirsty, rather than asking to leave the classroom to use the water fountain. Also, I want to let you know that there are a few dates that you should be aware of for this month and early October.
Terry Fox Run is Wednesday, September 28th at 1:00pm. Toonies for Terry can be brought to the office if you wish to make a donation. The children will walk/run around the school field. October 3rd field trip to SageBrush theatre. Please have the permission slips and payment in by September 28th.
Early Closure Days are Oct. 6 & 7. Children are dismissed at 12:30 and eat lunch at home. Please send a good sized snack, as this is a long time for some children to wait until lunch.
Normally, this would be the time that the parent teacher interview schedule would be drawn up by the administrator. Due to this unusual year with job action, there will be no formal schedule for those early closures BUT teachers WILL BE available to meet in the afternoons from 1:00 - 2:30, on a first come first served basis. If those dates and times are not convenient to you, I will be happy to chat with you by phone or set up an appointment for another day.
Photo Day is Friday, October 7th. This will be individual photos, rather than class photos. Bring your smile!
I will chat soon on my blog....DNews!
Thank you, A. Dhaliwal
