Coyote’s Howl Oct 28 – Nov 1

Dear Parents and Families,

Just a short Coyote’s Howl this week.

A huge thank you to all of you who supported our Book Fair. Because of you, we raised $2170.00 worth of new books for the library. Also, a big thank you Ms. Vaughan and her volunteers for all their hard work!


Photo re-take day is coming up on Tuesday if you need it. Please make note on your calendars.



Halloween Costume Parade and Costume Guidelines

Just a reminder that our Costume Parade will be after lunch on Halloween.

Please remind your children that…

  • costumes should not be too scary
  • toy weapons should be kept at home
  • if possible, try to avoid masks. If masks are unavoidable, they should be used during the parade only.
  • Some students may want to bring an extra set of clothes for after the parade.
  • Parents are welcome to attend 




As we stated last week, we need your help. If possible please leave your dogs at home during drop-off and pick-up times. Please note that there are children at our school (and even adults) who have a phobia towards dogs. Unfortunately such phobias are present despite the size of the dog. If you feel that you must bring your dog to school during drop-off and pick-up times, please tie/leash your dog along the front fence close to the bike racks. Dogs should never be past the fenced area near our bike racks/on our school grounds at any time. We are finding that despite good intentions by dog owners, we are still finding dog-poo on our grounds. This of course, is of great concern as kids often step in it during recess and lunch. Please help us by spreading the word to your neighbours as well. We also encourage the use of the dog park as opposed to our school field/school grounds. 


Please know that we are so appreciative of all our parents who are able to help us out. Without you, our school would not be as great as it is. We can’t thank you enough.


Our Remembrance Day Assembly will be on Nov 8, shortly after recess at 11am. Parents are welcome to attend.
