Dragons Breath Nov 14 – 17
Dear Parents and Guardians,
Thank you to all those who supported our Remembrance Day Assembly. I am very proud of all the hard work and thoughtfulness that went into preparing for that morning. I hope that during the long weekend that you not only were able to spend more family time with your kids but that you took some time to remember all those served our country.
The Delta Division of Family Practice Local Action Team is offering a free community event on the important topic of anxiety.
Below is an information poster for the event.
Someome key information:
Date and Time: Wednesday, November 22, 5:00 PM (Resource Fair), 7:00 PM (Presentation)
Location: South Delta Secondary School
Presenter: Dr. Deborah McNamara
Topic: Making Sense of Anxiety in Pre-teens and Adolescents
Another reminder that as the weather gets colder and rainier, please make sure that kids come dressed appropriately for the weather. Please expect that kids will go out for recess and lunch, unless there is extreme weather. Please also be reminded that we do not have the capacity to allow kids come in before our morning bell. Students are encouraged to dress warmly and if needed, find shelter in the undercover area.
The Devon Gardens PAC is looking to build up a list of parents to help out with various activities throughout the year. This is a great opportunity to get involved with your kids’ school and meet some fellow families.
Volunteer roles include, but are not limited to, making and selling popcorn, hot lunch days, Family Fun Night, Sports Day and more. If you are willing to be contacted when opportunities arise, please fill out the form below.
Popcorn Day Lead Needed
We need a parent (or two) to help take over the coordination of popcorn sales. If you are willing and interested to learn more, contact Dianna at firstname.lastname@example.org. The role includes ensuring we have volunteers available for popping the corn on the Thursday before popcorn day and then scheduling volunteers on Friday sales days. There is a lots of support from the PAC, but we need someone to just take charge of this!
