JWH Weekly Update

October 22 - 26, 2018

The JWH Fall Fair was a huge success.  A huge shout out to all the volunteers for making our Fall Fair so much fun for the kids and adults!  Thank you to our Starbucks (Upper Middle and Eighth Line), COBS Bread (Upper Middle and Eighth Line) and Tim Hortons (South Sheridan Way) for their support.  An extensive list of other supporters of our Fall Fair will be sent out soon.

Picture Retake Day is Tuesday, October 23!

School photos were handed out to your child a week ago. If you haven’t already done so, please review the package and if you would like your child to have a retake, the photographer will be back on the morning of October 23rd.

The first immunization clinic for our grade 7s will take place on Wednesday, October 24. Please ensure that your child is wearing a short sleeved shirt for comfort and accessibility!

The grade 7 and 8 Flag Football team will be heading to Frank Hayden S.S. for a Tournament on Friday, October 26. Please make sure that your participating child is dressed appropriately for the day including clothing layers, plenty of water, sunscreen and a litterless lunch. All participants need a permission slip. Go Jaguars!

Just in time for the holidays, MacMillan’s provides a variety of scrumptious goodies to help with holiday food preparation. Look for the colourful brochure to come home. The campaign will last for about 2 - 3 weeks, at which time the orders need to be placed in order to meet the December deadline for delivery. The order forms will be sent out at the end of October and the campaign will run from November 8 - 22.

The Lost and Found bin is beyond full! Next week we will set up tables and ask the students to come and look for lost items. At the end of the week all leftover items will be bagged up and sent to a local charity. If you can make it into the school between 8am and 4pm, we would encourage you to come and take a look too!

JWH Spirit Parade.  Wednesday, October 31, Period 1, for FDK to Grade 3. Grades 4 to 8 will line the halls and encourage community spirit and FUN. We will send home a letter outlining the guidelines and format next week. Remember there is no sharing of food, so please don’t send in treats to share..
