So long September - Sept 28-Oct 2

We have an exciting week ahead with Hot Lunch, Terry Fox, and some special guest teachers in the room on Tuesday!

Week at a Glance

Monday, September 28, 2015
Picture Day. Dress your best, shine up those teeth, and practice your nicest smile!

A form to apply for a public library card went home today. On Thursdays students will have a chance to go to the Bookmobile. We are hoping to go check it out for the first time this Thursday, so if possible it would be great if those forms back by them. This is an optional choice, but is another great way to get books into students hands!

We are collecting Toonies for Terry as we prepare for our Terry Fox run on Wednesday.

If you ordered hot lunch, today is the day it arrives. Please send snacks for students, however their lunch will be ready for them at the school.
   **A huge thanks to Parent Council for organizing our hot lunches, what a treat! If you are able and interested in helping out on Hot Lunch days please contact me, or anyone on Parent Council. They have more information on their page on the Park Meadows School website. They also have some other activities happening soon where they would love some extra helping hands, such as chip sales and Halloween Carnival.**

Our very own Lethbridge School District #51 head office staff are coming to teach in our school today. Be sure to ask your child about our wonderful guest who taught Physical Education today!
Secret Blog Question: write in your agenda what you did in P.E. with your guest teacher today. Bonus if you can remember their name!
By answering this question you will get a little prize!

Terry Fox Run - This is the special 35th annual run, and we are joining with other schools at Henderson Lake to participate! This is a great time for us to get out and exercise, build community, and pay tribute to one of our national hero's. As part of Terry Fox day we are having our first school Spirit Day. Students are encouraged to wear red and white today!
A huge thanks for our parents who joined us for the event today!
