Message from the Chair
Happy New Year! I hope that everyone has had a wonderful holiday season and a much needed break to spend time with loved ones. A big “thank you” to everyone who donated to the Kids Kottage Foundation. They are so appreciative of the generosity of our families and this was a wonderful opportunity to teach our children how important it is to support and care for others, especially around the Christmas season.
Our second Parent Meeting of the year will be held January 12, 2017 at the Callingwood Rec Centre, in the meeting room on the second floor (where the September meeting was held). We will be providing important information for the second semester. Parents will then be signing up for their second semester Helper Days and January chocolates will be handed out. One parent from each family needs to attend this meeting. When signing up for parent helper days, please pick approximately ONE day a Month. If you cannot be at the January meeting for any reason, please advise your class rep and they will assign your helper days from those left after sign up. Please find alternate childcare for your children, as space is limited and this will ensure everyone can hear and pay attention to the information being presented.
We will also be accepting registration for the 2017-2018 school year for returning families only. In order to secure your spot, you must have a completed registration package. This must include all pages completely filled out and all the required cheques.
