A message from Mr. Finlayson in the library:


” Just in time for holiday gift giving, the Scholastic Book Fair will take place in our library during the week of DECEMBER 18th to DECEMBER 22nd. There are some wonderful last minute gift items to be found. Proceeds from the fair go directly towards our library and have been a huge success in the past! I will be sending out a Google doc link tomorrow for those people who are able to volunteer a few hours of their time to help run the book fair as I am not always in the library. Any assistance you can give will be greatly appreciated!”

Press Start!!

Hi Parents and Families,

A few more days until we PRESS START!!!

Your kids have truly done an amazing job! Now we are ready to get into the “game” for real!

We have a show at 1:00pm on Monday for the whole school, parents are welcome in the balcony. Students will be rehearsing in the morning, then take an early lunch to prepare for the show.

For the evening, both Monday and Tuesday (6:30pm) all performers and crew (including tech.) are expected at school at 5:30 sharp for setup, makeup and costuming.

These arrival times also apply to students performing in Press Rewind.

After Tuesday’s performance we are planning on holding a freezies in the schoolyard party. Something short and sweet to thank the kids and reward them for getting through the “final level” and putting on a rocking show.

Thanks to all parents for your support and love for your child’s creativity and talent!
