Conduct, a letter from the Principal and a Code of Conduct Commitment

or pick-up a hard copy from the School) and return to the classroom teacher by Friday, November 23rd.
Return: We have a number
of families who have not returned the forms packages sent out at the end of
September. Could you kindly return these as soon as possible so that we
have up-to-date contact information for emergencies and family
reunification. Thank you.
for the Weather: Please make
sure that your child has a spare change of clothes at school as they are often
needed during the rainy season. Your child will appreciate having
something warm and dry to change into. Please also ensure your child
is dressed for the weather...it's starting to get chilly out
there! Thank you.
