We never know what we are going to get with weather in Saskatchewan -- record setting highs last
week and VERY cold this week. Good thing that we can adapt and layer our clothes.

Exams start next week on Tuesday. Please look carefully at the exam schedule and make sure that
students are here early to write their exams. ALL exams are in the morning. When students are done
(and have completed all assignments for the class) they are free to go home (after signing out at the

In second semester, we will be making some changes to our Homework Room to better keep students
up to date on all assignments. Homework room will start at 12:00 with students bringing their lunch
to Ms. Hill's room. They will stay there until they have completed their homework or the 12:45 bell
rings. We are making these changes to ensure that students are not behind in their assignments. If
students do not have a lunch, a lunch will be provided for them. If you have any questions, give the
school a call.

The SLC will be having their Second Annual Pajama and Pancake Day on January 23rd.
Breakfast will be served from 8:30 to 9:15 for all students and staff with their pjs on.

3. Wows to everyone for embracing this cold weather and the drafty school. So grateful to the
inventor of long underwear.

“Kids in the Kitchen” cooking program will be offered for students grades 3-6. There is 6 weeks or
lessons in the package. Class size would ideally be 6-8 but a few more would be fine. If your child
would be interested in this class, please send back the slip below. Classes are expected to be in
March after school for 1 ½ hours from 3:15 to 4:45. The last class will be longer and parent(s) are
invited to join.
To help keep costs down, students are asked to bring their own snack & drink for afterschool.
Students are in need of something while instructions are being given.
Last year’s estimated costs were too low to cover expenses, so the cost will be $40 this year.

28th, Monday April 2nd, with alternate ( in case of cancellation) Wednesday, March 28th.

If students are interested in sewing classes and knitting/crocheting/needlepoint classes, they may start
up in February through April. These would be suitable for beginners or refreshers. If the note
below could be returned by January 25th, then a mini-meeting at school with students would
determine the dates and times and supplies needed. The cost is $15 per session. I would like to have
an adult craft club also, where we bring what we are working on and share patterns, etc. Cost-$2 to
cover coffee, etc.
