Christmas Concert Notes!

Everything is just about ready for our Christmas Concert! There is a dress rehearsal tomorrow morning for all students and staff. Mrs. MacIsaac Gallant and the students have been working hard. All indicators are that it will be a delightful concert.

Here are some important notes:

  1. Ensure that your children come rested, ready and dressed for the concert!
  2. The concert begins at 1:15. We will open the door at 12:30 after our students come in from outdoors recess.
  3. Take care with parking. We appreciate that our parking spaces are limited but please do not be too creative and be sure that you park in appropriate and safe areas.
  4. There will be seating available. We hope as many guests as possible will take a seat as it works best for everyone.
  5. Please be respectful of the students’ performances and hard work. Turn your cell phones off and keep noise to a minimum so that all can enjoy the concert.

Last Call for December HotLunches!

Tonight at midnight is the deadline for December HotLunches.

Help Keep Our Playground Clean!

We are looking for support from our parents and Greenfield community with a problem that has been getting worse and is affecting our recess times outdoors.

We are fortunate to have a large green space for our students to play.  However, many others are seeing our playground as a place to let their dogs run.  When these dogs “do their business,” their owners are not “scooping” and they are leaving the mess behind.  Some do scoop but will leave the bag behind.  We are having many situations with children or staff stepping in this mess or having to pick bags up off the playground.

We will be getting signage put up to encourage the respectful use of our playground.  Any other support for this would be welcome.

December HotLunches Menu – Now Open!

The menu for December HotLunches is now up and open for ordering. It is a couple of days later than usual but report cards kept us busy!

Important notes about this month’s menu:

  1. The deadline for ordering is Sunday, December 1st at midnight.
  2. You will be unable to order unless you have paid for November’s order.  Parent should be aware that we do expect that lunches are paid for by Friday of the first week of the menu. Unfortunately, we have many parents who do not follow this guideline.  For this menu, all lunches should be paid for by Friday, December 6th.
  3. There is no menu for Friday, December 6th.  This is a Professional Development Day.
  4. There are no lunches for Thursday, December 19th. Our school will be attending the Summerside Capitals game that day.  It begins at 11:oo so we are expecting that all students bring a packed lunch that day.
  5. The prices of lunches from Greco on Friday have increased by 10 cents.  We have requested that Greco use packaging that is more  friendly for the environment other than styrofoam as this goes into waste.  The new packaging can be composted but the cost is a little more.
