Happy Thanksgiving to our students and families. Here is the news at Sissons for this coming week...
Our new wall tent is now under construction on the William McDonald grounds. We are using the services of our experienced builder Steve Reitsma to make sure the tent is up and ready to go in time for when the colder weather arrives. Steve has also been working closely with parent volunteers and local businesses in order to secure some excellent deals and support for our construction efforts. We will be sure to thank them more fully as the project nears completion.
As part of the wall tent's construction, we will also be putting in a second fire pit nearer to the location of our tent.
A few weeks ago, we put in a large order of outside toys for our students in the portables. These, coupled with the natural loose objects that can be easily found around our school's grounds (including long poles and rocks) are helping us to ensure students have a variety of options to occupy themselves during our recess and lunch breaks. Our new toys should be arriving shortly, and we are currently assessing the availability of the school's naturally-available loose materials to determine if they should be supplemented with additional purchases. Stay tuned!
Our PAC meeting this week is scheduled for 7:00 PM on Wednesday. The in-person portion of the meeting will take place in the school's cafeteria. The on-line portion will take place via Zoom. The information to connect to the Zoom meeting is included in the agenda (linked below). We hope to see you on Wednesday!
