All schools in Prince Edward Island will be participating in a provincial school survey program called OurSCHOOL.  This survey is for students, teachers and parents.  The survey is open now and will run until May 4th.

Corrections and Credits in HotLunches

Parents will see credits in their HotLunches accounts if they placed any orders for milk or food on March 22nd, March 23rd and April 17th (today).  These were “storm days” and, as there was no school, orders from Captain Sub/Greco and Pita Pit were not prepared and delivered to the school.

Parents will see a credit in their account for orders on these days and can use it for future orders.

Healthy Eating at Greenfield

On April 12th, we had some healthy snacks in our classrooms thanks to our Greenfield Home and School who is wanting to support healthy eating at school and at home.

Students and staff were invited to enjoy some cucumber and watermelon.

The watermelon was generously donated by Summerside Superstore.
(Fun Fact – watermelon and cucumbers are both fruits in the melon family.
Cut one of each open and see how they are the same!)

Thank you to Jana Weatherbie, Becky Stewart and Tracy Desroches
for preparing the fruit.  These healthy treats were yummy!

The Ballet Visits Greenfield!

Ballet Jorgen was at Greenfield Elementary on Monday, April 9th to provide a one-hour presentation.  It was a wonderful opportunity to  learn about ballet as a storytelling medium, to try basic dance positions, and to discover how emotions can be conveyed through movement.

It was a wonderful presentation enjoyed by all students and staff.  Thank you to Ballet Jorgen for coming to Greenfield and teaching us about ballet and the TD Bank Group who provides support for the program.
