Dear Parents, 

Happy April! We hope no one got too “fooled” this morning with any tricks. We had students in backwards clothing, pretend sticks of gum, and lots more trickery for April Fool’s Day today. 

A big thank you to Mr. Cooper for setting up a fun egg hunt in the Junior and Primary yards. Students were on a mission to find all 30 eggs hidden across both playgrounds! Remember not to TAKE the eggs, they are simply there to record the colour and number on your egg tracking sheets. All instructions can be found in this week’s news on Edsby. This will continue through April 6th, so there will be lots of time for students to go egg hunting to earn points for their house!

On that note, we want to wish everyone who is celebrating a very Happy Easter weekend. We hope you use the time over the long weekend to relax and enjoy time with the members of your household. Please remember to follow all public health guidelines as we move into a stricter grey zone lockdown starting this weekend. We know it’s hard not to gather with extended family and friends over a holiday weekend, but we must strictly adhere to all policies to ensure we keep community transmission as low as possible.

We look forward to seeing students back at school on Tuesday to finish off our second term, with a house colour day next Friday. Wishing you and your families a safe and healthy long weekend.

Amy Fuller & Sharon Liebenthal
