The Grade 5 students will be hosting the Remembrance Day Assembly on November 5, 2014 at 11:00am in the gymnasium. Family members are welcome to attend.
The Assembly has been deferred to November 20 which is National Child Day. We will do October and November Awards on that day.
There are no classes on Monday Nov. 3 due to teacher Professional Development.
Our field trip to Chapters is on Tuesday Nov. 4. There is a total of 4 visits scheduled throughout the day to include all students. The first visit will include both Grade 6 classes and both Grade 1 classes. The bus leaves school promptly at 8:50, please ensure your child is at school on time in order to attend the field trip. Permission slips go home today and must be returned on Friday October 31. Using the funds given to us as a result of being the provincial winner of the Indigo Adopt a School Contest each student will select 2 books at Chapters, one for their classroom library & one for the school library. A tag will be placed in each book with the name of the child who selected it. Our school wide assembly to celebrate with our school community will be Nov. 28, details to be announced later.
Heather Bartlett, Grade 6 and Sydney Rose ,Grade 4 are the winners of the Halloween baskets. Enjoy the baskets and Happy Halloween!

Due to water problems in the area, Bishop Abraham will remain closed for the remainder of the day. There is no running water in the school, therefore there is no access to the water to drink, wash hands or use the bathrooms.
