QEA e-Bulletin Week of February 25 2019
sunshine we’ve been enjoying lately! Let’s hope it lasts.
This week, on Wednesday
February 27th, we will be observing International Day of PINK! Students and
staff are encouraged to wear pink and to think about what it means to be kind and
to be a good friend. In keeping with this theme, and in alignment with our Code
of Conduct and with our School Goal around Social/Emotional Learning, QEA will
be having a mini Global School Play
Day. Students are welcome to bring one or two toys or games to share with peers
– the only requirement is that the toy or game must be battery/electricity free.
There is no obligation to bring a toy/game - we have plenty here at the school.
Following a brief assembly after lunch, students will be engaging in imaginative,
unstructured play for the afternoon. There is more information about the
importance of unstructured play in this Ted Talk.
Arriving Late &
Just a reminder that it
is very important that you sign your child in should you arrive after 9:15 and
that you sign your child out should you leave with your child prior to 3:00.
In the case of an emergency,
we need to be able to account for everyone in the building and as we take
attendance at 9:05, anyone arriving after this time who has not been signed in
at the office will not be accounted for.
Additionally, if you have
left with your child before 3PM and not signed them out, we will assume that that
child is still on site and will have to account for them.
Thanks so much for
your support with this important safety matter.
