We would like to remind our families to dress for the December weather. Appropriate outdoor cloth- ing that includes winter jackets, snow pants, hats, gloves/mittens, and boots are definitely needed to combat the cold weather.

Heroes, who have made great contri- butions to our country and the world. We honored the heroes of the past, the present and then looked to the future and the character it takes to become a hero. The assembly itself freatuerd the choir singing, “Heros” by Mariah Carey, a celebration of the “Angles of Mercy”, the nurses who made a difference to the Cana- dian war effort, and a beauiful song called, “The Call” was sung to a slide show of Canada’s participation in world war 1, 2 and 3. We then celebrated the character traites, as students from grades 1 to 8 presented a piece on “Character” demonstrating how we can learn from the solidiers to live our lives with character. Finally, a beautiful dance of hope was presented to send us away to reflect on the importance of the day and our collective belief that peace can one day be a way of life. In addition to the assembly, students from kindergarten to grade eight decorated the Baythorn hallways with their creative reflections and pictures about heroes . Their creativity and insight reminded us that together it is our duty to keep the memories of our Canadian Veterans alive as we are unified in our goal for peace. Student’s Leaving School with Written Permission Baythorn prides itself in being able to provide a safe and secure environment for all of its students. Increasingly, we are being asked to ‘bend the rules’ and allow any number of variations to what we know is the proper sign out procedure. Effective immediately, we are not going to allow students to leave the building for any reason, unless the student provides us with a signed note from a legal guardian or has a guardian sign them out. We will not accept telephone messages nor will we allow for our facsimile machine to be used as a solution as it is sometimes not reliable in the transfer of information. E-mail communication with the home room teacher and or the office will not be accepted. Parents wishing to allow other parents to sign their children out, while not our preference, must also provide a note indicating that they are giving another parent permission to take their child out of the building. Any other combination of requests puts our office staff in a very uncomfortable and libellous situation. Should you wish to update your emergency contact list please call us as this will also assist us greatly. Anyone on the emergency contact list has permission to sign your child out of school. We thank you in advance for your attention to this very important issue.
