Field trips at the preschool level must be chosen carefully, taking into consideration age, safety and level of acceptance for new situations. For this reason, I offer a few “select” opportunities each year. Successful outings from the past several years have included the Saskatchewan Science Centre, the Wascana Nurseries Greenhouse, the Museum of Natural History and a petting farm. Admission fees (if any) are collected for each of these trips as they occur. When parent volunteer drivers are required, I insist that all occupants be wearing seat belts and follow all regulatory rules regarding special safety seating based on a child’s weight.
Several great class photos are taken throughout the year. Many are available through our website - where permission to publish student pictures has been received. Formal school photographs from an outside photographer are not taken. Commercial retail outlets seem to be able to provide individual photos at reasonable cost to the consumer at times when individual families choose.
You will be scheduled to help as close to your child’s birthday as possible. If you are not scheduled this way, please let me know. If your child has a summer birthday (June, July or August), you will be scheduled to help in September or May for the purpose of recognizing that summer birthday. Please feel free to bring cupcakes as part of the snack. As well, a non-sweet part to your snack that day is greatly encouraged. Please bring your own plates and spoons if you bring a cake.
Graduation is a special celebration for each class that winds up the school year. It is held the last school day in May each year.
There may be special theme days spread throughout the year where children are encouraged to dress according to an activity or theme. A good example of this is our “Beach Day” that is held - as logic would dictate - right in the middle of winter!!!
