February 20th – Family Day



Snack Program

The snack program is currently providing more than 600 snacks per week to students. The program is working a bit differently than last year; teachers are managing that snacks come into classrooms on an as-needed basis. On any given day, a variety of snacks such as muffins, scones, fresh fruit or vegetables, cheese, yoghurt and granola bars are available. If your child would like to make use of the program, they should talk with their teacher so that snacks can be provided. The program is open to everyone!
