Principal’s Message – October 12th
Dear Queen Elizabeth School Community,
We hope everyone had a restful Thanksgiving weekend. The colder, wet weather is definitely upon us. We will keep students inside if it is excessively wet, windy or cold but inside days are rare at Queen Elizabeth so please please be sure to send your child to school each day with a warm rain jacket, boots and an umbrella if they wish to use one.
Please see the following upcoming dates:
Wednesday, October 20th and Thursday, October 21st – Parent Conferences. Students will be dismissed at 12:24 PM on both days to facilitate Conferences. Teachers will reach out to families to schedule a conference time and day.
Friday, October 22nd – Provincial Professional Development Day. School is Closed.
Thursday, October 28th – Halloween Pumpkin Run! – Parents are invited to join us for our annual Pumpkin Run. Please be sure to arrive before your scheduled run time and remain on the grass field (Ryall Park) throughout the run. We ask that you please wear a mask and remain respectfully distanced from other families. Students will follow the path that takes them by the South Side of the Community Centre, through the Ryall Park Playground, by the tennis courts and back along the service road. Please be sure to read the schedule below carefully to ensure you know when your child is running.
Students will participate in the Pumpkin Run as follows:
Kindergarten – 9:45 AM
Grade 1 and 2 – 11:00 AM
Grade 3 and 4 – 11:45 AM
Following the run in the afternoon, a few lucky students from each class will be able to visit our pumpkin patch and take home a pumpkin!
Friday, October 29th – PAC Pizza Days are BACK! Our PAC is holding their first Pizza Day Fundraiser on Friday, October 29th. Families can order personal pan pizzas that come individually boxed. A small team of PAC parents will sort the orders and pizzas will be delivered by school staff. All necessary Health and Safety protocols will be followed. Please help support our PAC fundraising efforts. Their hard work raises funds to help pay for additional learning resources, field trips, programs and classroom supplies.
