§  no throwing of snowballs

§  treed slope from courtyard to fence-line is off limits


It was great to see so many parents at the PAC meeting last Wednesday. Just a reminder that all parents of students at QEA are members of the PAC and are invited to attend these important meetings. The next meeting is Wednesday, 6 March at 7PM - the location is TBA, depending on the weather. More information will come closer to the date.


Thanks to all the parents who helped their children return their library books last week. We went from over 100 overdue books to fewer than 20! Just a reminder that Book exchange is once per week, usually on Fridays, but that students may return their books at any time throughout the week.


This week, we will mark 100 days of school on Tuesday the 12th with many exciting learning opportunities that the classes have been working on for several weeks.
