We are almost to the “Fall Finale” as they call it on tv these days.  Report cards – done!  Interviews – Done!  I am looking forward to some holiday fun this week with our concert this Thursday.  It’s a busy final week coming up.  I’m sure it will fly by.

img_0324I write this week’s message under imminent threat of snow! UGH!  It looks so beautiful when it is falling and I am sitting at home in front of the fire but for driving and working – a nightmare.  I’m crossing my fingers that it’s a false alarm.  Today has been beautiful and we managed to finish all the house decorating and get the yard cleaned up.  Feels good.

There are lots of things going on this week so make sure to get lots of sleep so you’re prepared for the work and the fun!

If you have not already done so, please provide Yvette with  copy of your interview schedule for Wednesday and Thursday.  Also, it would be much appreciated if students could write a reminder in their Tuesday agendas about the early dismissal on Wednesday.  Let’s see if we can reduce the number of kids not picked up!

Thanks in advance to Harj for hosting our staff Christmas party this Friday.  Don’t forget to pay Beth if you haven’t done so yet.  I am looking forward to spending some fun time with all of you.


  1. Supervision Aide Meeting on Tuesday at 11:00.
  2. Staff Committee meeting on Tuesday at lunch – agenda items to the clipboard in the staffroom by Monday at noon please (or email me or Harj)
  3. Parent Teacher interviews for some classes on Wednesday (2-8) and Thursday (3-6).
  4. South Asian Professionals here on Friday morning to present to Div. 1 at  9:00 a.m.
  5. Staff party at Harjinder’s at 5:00 on Friday – see the sign in table for details.

Have a great week everyone!
