Dragon’s Breath Oct 30 – Nov 3

Oct 30

Dear Parents and Guardians,

As you know Halloween is coming up on Tuesday. Our Costume Parade will be at 9:00am on Halloween. Students are encouraged to come to school dressed in their Halloween Costume. They will have a chance to be part of the parade that goes throughout the school.

Please be reminded that…

  • costumes should not be too scary
  • toy weapons and replica weapons should be kept at home
  • if possible, try to avoid masks. If masks are unavoidable, they should be used during the parade only.
  • Students will want to bring an extra set of clothes for after the parade.
  • Parents are welcome to attend our parade and take pictures from our school hallways.  

Volunteers needed 

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 dg.volunteers@gmail.com.  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!


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.

Popcorn Day in Friday, Nov 3. Students may purchase a bag of popcorn at recess for $1.00

Dragon’s Breath Oct 23 – 27

Throughout the month of November, Delta Police will be visiting our school during our pickup and drop off times to help ensure that students are arriving and leaving school safely.

Delta Police and our parents can continue to help us keep our students safe during pickup and drop off times. Please help us by doing the following.

  • Use the designated parent parking lot across the street from the school
  • Follow the directions of crossing guards
  • Keep our school/staff parking lot clear of parent vehicles and pedestrians
  • Stress to your children that they should not hang out in our parking lot
  • Keep vehicles clear of Downs Road
  • Encourage older students to walk to school
  • If possible, walk younger students to school
  • Drive slowly and cautiously 
  • Report traffic concerns to the office

We understand that that before and after school can be very busy. Together we can continue to work on keeping our kids as safe as possible during pick-up and drop-off times.


Have a great week!
