Week of March 27 - 31st

What's new? New Gym Schedule!

Our Physical Education (gym class) schedule has slightly changed for this last term. Our gym classes are now on Mondays and Tuesdays at 11:00 am. 

I know how hard it is for the boys to wear their gym shorts under their pants. It is much easier for the girls.
Could I ask that on Mondays and Tuesdays, your child comes to school with gym clothes under their uniform as usual . .. however ...** boys may bring their shorts to school instead of trying to squish them under their pants and I will allow some time for them to change in the boys washroom under the supervision of Mr. Cheung. 

Reminders for this week ...

** Gym class: Students should wear t-shirt and shorts under their uniform (boys can bring their shorts to change into at school).
