Please send in an extra pair of socks (or even a few pairs!) for your child to keep at school in case of wet feet! Our hallways can get quite wet with our boots and little feet may step in a puddle on the way into our classroom.
We have discussed at length in class what all the fuss is about on December 25th. Santa is coming and that's a fact! But we are celebrating someone's birthday and we don't want to forget that either. Let's think about what baby Jesus would want as his birthday gift this year. The children of K2 think that love and kindness spread throughout the year would be the best gift of all.
We wish all of you a very Merry Christmas and a safe and Happy New Year - see you in 2018 !
Ms. Landry, Mme Donovan and Mrs. Smith
P.S. Have a well deserved vacation break (the first day back after the holidays is Monday, January 8th, 2018).

ADVENT PROJECT- Christmas Hampers/Angel Tree- On Wednesday December 13th, we will be having a Christmas Spirit Day. 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. Students are encouraged to wear their Christmas spirit from head to toe on Dec 13th and bring in a donation to support our Advent initiative. Thank you in advance for your kindness and support.
