Monthly news starting December 2, 2019

Please remember to view calendar below.

  • Because there is no school for students on Friday we have changed Pizza day to tomorrow Thursday, December 5th.
  • December 10th, 2019 - The Christmas Tree Lighting starts at 12:30 p.m. in the gymnasium.
  • December 12th, 2019 - Christmas Bazaar - Two notices are going home from Home and School.  Please note we are looking for volunteers.

WE HAVE DECIDED TO NOT HAVE TICKETS FOR THE CHRISTMAS CONCERT.  LIKE LAST YEAR WE HAVE TWO IDENICTAL PERFORMANCES SO THERE IS NO NEED FOR TICKETS

  • December 17th, 2019 - Christmas Concert

10:30 AM -11:30 AM (doors open at 10:00 AM) primary - grade 2
12:30 AM -1:30 PM (doors open at 12:00 PM)  grade 3 - grade 5

Both concerts are identical, however parents are encouraged to attend the appropriate concert to help us stay within the seating capacity of the gym set by the Fire Marshall's office.  We understand that this may not be possible for all families and we believe there should be room to accommodate those that may have to attend the opposite concert.

 

 


YOU COULD WIN A HOLIDAY GIFT BASKET - Tickets will be coming home with your students on Monday December 6, 2019. The prize is a Holiday Gift Basket filled with items to pamper yourself!

  • Christmas Bazaar - It’s that time of the year again as we begin planning for the Christmas Bazaar! The bazaar gives the children a chance to buy gifts for their family members with the change they bring from home. Over the years we have received some amazing donations. These items are a highlight for our students as they get so excited to search for the perfect gift for their loved ones. We are looking for gently used or new items you may have around. Items are not limited to these examples below. Examples include:
    • Old Christmas gift bags, scarves, gloves, mugs, tools, purses, pet items: leash/collar, books, jewelry and crafts
      Please no scented items, such as candles, perfume, soaps, etc (Scent Sensitive School)

Donations may be dropped off at the school from now to Dec 6th. More information on the Bazaar to come in a few weeks.
Thank you,
ACES Home & School

  • For re-scheduled dismissal for your child, please try and call before 1:10 p.m.  There are times when it is difficult to get a note to a student in time before the bell rings.
  • Please remember to call in the morning if your child is not attending school.  We only do safe arrival from Primary to Grade 3.
  • Blank bus notes A lot of you have been using the bus notes that have been handed out to you.  It is working wonderfully.  Please continue as it insures accurate information.  These notes can also be used for students that will be picked up.   If you need more just call or email the office to let Cynthia know.  I will put them in your child’s book bag.
  • Dropping off Students We are now entering the sixth week of school and most students are now comfortable entering the building and going to their coat rack by themselves.  We ask that all parents please remain in the lobby when dropping of students.
  • Picking up Students at dismissal.  Please remember that parents are asked to wait outside at dismissal until our bus students have left the building.
  • Pre-Primary parents are asked to use the pre-primary entrance when dropping off or picking up students.
  • Lost and Found - We are already getting a buildup of lost and found items. The lost and found table is in the front lobby.  If you are missing something, please have your child check the lost and found table.
