Creative Arts Week, April 17-21 - Come around the world with us in a glass slipper! Cinderella is the focus of this year’s multicultural theme. Variations of Cinderella appear in almost every world culture. She's known as "Yeh-Shen" in China, "The Rough-Face Girl" to the Algonquin Indians of North America, "Chinye" and "Nyasha" to the people of Africa, and “Adelita” to the people of Mexico. Students in grades K-4 will be spending the week reading and comparing/contrasting different Cinderella stories from all over the world as well as doing some multicultural art. Students will also get to experience “crossing the border” as different countries’ border customs will be placed throughout the hallways. Don’t forget your passports (will be made at school)!

Get involved! There will be an opportunity for parent involvement on Tuesday (18th), Wednesday (19th), and Thursday (20th) during Creative Arts Week. We will need “border agents” to keep our borders secure! Times each day are as follows: 8:45-10:00, 10:30-11:45, 12:45-1:45, and 2:00-3:00. If you would be willing to help, please contact Miss Kooistra ( Thank you! We are excited for another great and memorable week!

Student Pick-up Lane Reminder – Please remember that the pick-up lane in front of the elementary school should remain clear or moving at the start and end of each day.  If you need to wait for a student or need to leave your car for any reason, please park across the street or along Drayton St.  The lane is also used by our preschool parents for drop-off and pick-up between 11:30 am and 12:30 pm each day.  Please, be mindful of this and do not park in the lane if you are volunteering on the playground or bringing hot lunch to a classroom.  Thank you for helping us put the safety of our students first!
