  • Dear Parents/Guardians:

    A few items to take note of: 


    1.     The Regional Leadership Team of the Annapolis Valley Regional School Board has requested schools to cancel any in-service days scheduled from now until March Break due to the large number of recent storm days.  As a result, Friday, March 13th will be a full day of classes for students. 

    2.     Information recently went home regarding satisfaction surveys for parents to complete.  A further update has been communicated that the AVRSB will not be collecting information using the satisfaction surveys at this time.  It is hoped that a new survey will be developed for next year.

    3.     February has been a snowy month!  Please ensure that your son or daughter is prepared for the wintry weather: coat, snowpants, mittens/gloves, toque, and winter boots are all necessary to play safely outside.  If you are arriving or exiting school property with a vehicle, please take care and drive safely - the snowbanks are high and difficult to see around.

    4.     Information is being sent home relating to meningococcal meningitis and our proximity to and relationship with Acadia University for you to read through.

    5.     Information is being sent out about Food Fit Family Fun evening- it is on a “first come first served basis” so get your registration in soon!

    Thank you Parents/Guardians for your continued support of the Lunch Program. With all the storm days the past few weeks it has become increasingly difficult to keep track of replacement orders. Please continue to note this on your child's lunch order to help in the process of keeping on track. Pizza Day continues to be our biggest challenge as this order has to be phoned in by 10:30am Monday. It is important to know that orders received Tuesday for Pizza cannot be filled. Shelley Durling


    Dear Parent/Guardian,

    We’re getting very close to the performance of our School Musical, Ocean Commotion! All students will be participating in this on the evenings of March 4th & 5th. The show starts at 7pm so make plans to be there!

     I am asking that parents provide costumes for their own children…please keep in mind that they are only as elaborate as you make them. There are a few guidelines that I am asking each individual class follow:

    Ms Townsend (P) – Starfish All red/orange (pants and shirt) – Starfish cardboard cutout painted with a starfish on it (Red, Orange or Pink starfish please -one dimensional)

    Ms Levy (P/1) – Barnacles All brown (Pants and shirt)…Barnacle headgear will be provided J

    Ms. Hill (1/2) – Herring  All silver/grey (pants/shirt) – Ideally they should have flowing capes with hoods

    Ms Conrad-Tracey (2/3)- Blue fish All blue (pants/shirt) Blue fish cardboard cutout painted with a fish on it – sparkles and glitter welcome!

    Ms Coft (3/4) – Tuna Fish either all blue or yellow (pants/shirt) Tuna fish cardboard cutout painted with a blue fin or yellow fin tuna painted on it

    Mr MacDonald (4/5) – Octopus or Squid Either all purple or blue (pants and shirt). Perhaps a headpiece with tentacles hanging off (must be able to see the face) or making a skirt of 8 stuffed stocking legs for an octopus.


    In addition to these costumes we are looking for the following props to borrow for the show. If you are able to lend any of these items we would love to use them!

    -         Fish net (the thicker the better)

    -         Buoys

    -         Oars

    -         Lobster traps

    -         Harpoon – perhaps made from foam?

    Also if you have skills in applying face paint/stage makeup and are willing to help with this on the evenings of the show please let me know.

    Looking forward to seeing what you create!
