Dance a thon

7 days to go until our Dance a thon FUNraiser! We have booked our DJ to get us moving on May 19th! Students came home this week with their fundraising envelope; please help us reach our goal! For every $5.00 raised, students will be able to put a ticket into a draw for a prize! We are down to 7 days to raise money to meet our school goal of $10, 000!!

Safety Reminder

As the weather warms up, more of our neighbours are using the community pathways to walk their dogs, exercise and enjoy the fresh air. The pathways that cross through our property are community paths and during the school day we do have community members passing through our fields. During breaks, our fields are monitored by staff on duty, and most neighbours steer clear during this time due to the active play of our students.

This week, a few students were concerned when they saw a stranger walking the path behind our portables. The students were quick to tell their teacher and the office. After a walk through of our property, and a check in call with the Halton Police, we have concluded the person seen was not a safety concern for our students. However, we wanted to inform the community to encourage families to engage in a discussion with their children around safety and strangers. This is a perfect opportunity to review what to do if you feel unsafe, adults you can talk to, and private family code word in the case of an emergency.

In Partnership,

Robert Iannuzzi

Colleen Golightly

and the Staff of Sam Sherratt
