The school is busy getting ready for the early May performances of Annie Jr! If your child is performing and you are eager to find out more about their costume needs, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your child’s name/role and we’ll be happy to send the cast costume letter and reference images.
This Sunday and Monday is the 50% off sale at Value Village so its a good time to go shopping.
We are hoping to collect costumes after March Break so we have time for sewing and organizing what is needed!
Also be sure to join the private Facebook group here for updates and news about the production. We thank you for your support.

The Frankland Fun Fair is a long standing tradition and is a heartwarming annual event which strongly reflects the uniqueness of our “Community School”.
Our Garden Educator Elin Marley has been back since September, taking classes into the Learning Garden. Teachers have signed up for scissor salsa, kale chips, garden mapping and seed scavenger hunts. Find out more about Elin’s lesson plans and see some great photos of what the kids have been up to on Elin’s Twitter too.
Also the garden is open at lunch on Thursdays depending on the weather! Parents are welcome to join in. Last week, there was a bit of light weeding, some picking up of trash and some kids got to plant radish seeds. Lemon balm was smelled and some chives were tasted.
Mark your calendars for Wednesday, October 3rd at 7 pm in the staff room! Childcare available. Elections will be happening!
Please read more about School Council Positions here.
Sign up sheets are posted in the front lobby. Nomination forms are in the School Council cubby in the office. They must be filled out before 5pm on the day of the meeting.
Hope to see you there!
