Our school Christmas Concert/Play will be on Friday, December 14, 2018. There will be 2 performances on this day at 10:30 am and 2:15 pm. The Kindergarten students will be opening the show singing, "Hush There's A Baby". Your child is asked to wear Christmas attire on this day for our performance.
ADVENT PROJECT- Christmas Hampers/Angel Tree- We, at St. James school have chosen to support families in a less privileged school in our School Board. We are supporting these families through the gift of food hampers compiled by each class in the school. Cash donations will also be appreciated. All monies raised will be used to buy food vouchers. Thank you in advance for your kindness and support.
With the cold weather moving in, please send your child to school dressed appropriately for the weather. We are outdoors for 45 minutes in the morning and 30 minutes at lunch. Please send in extra socks and a spare set of clothing for your child if they do not have any in the classroom.
Just a reminder that Kindergarten Progress Reports will go home on November 15.
Halloween is fast approaching! It is an exciting event, but we ask for your cooperation with the following:
Please note that we are unable to distribute food treats of any kind due to Board Allergy and Health Policies. Should you wish to send something in with your child (optional and most do not), it must be a non-food item.
Costumes are permitted and we will parade through the school on Wednesday, October 31st, to show them to the older classes. However, any accessories should be left at home (ie, princess wands or swords - no weapons). Please do not send your child in face make-up as it gets everywhere as they play. Please have your child wearing play clothes underneath their costumes (or in their bags) as they may wish to remove their costumes after our parade.
The Kinder Team
Thursday, October 18, 2018 is school picture day. Students are asked not to wear green on this day.
St. James will be starting a new initiative next week called Trashless Tuesdays. This means students are asked to reduce the amount of garbage left over from their lunches by having litterless lunches. Students are encouraged to use reusable containers on this day each week to make sure they have no garbage.
Wednesday, October 3 is our school Terry Fox Run. Please bring in a $2 donation to support this cause. Thanks so much!
Please remember to wear an orange shirt on Monday, Oct. 1st. It is a day where we recognize the survivors of residential schools and join together in the spirit of reconciliation and hope to show that every child matters.
