Today is Family Literacy Day, an annual celebration of adults and children learning together. All parents are encouraged to spend some family time today on an activity that builds literacy or numeracy skills. Have some FUN with a card game or board game tonight!

Speaking of literacy, we are excited about the upcoming literacy event for the parents of children in Kindergarten to Grade Two. On February 22nd from 6:30-7:30 pm, literacy coach Jackie Hicken will be discussing "How to support your child as a reader". Parents will also get a chance to spend time with their child’s grade level teachers to discuss specific reading outcomes. No babysitter? No problem! We plan to have a movie playing in the multi-purpose room, with supervision to allow as many parents as possible to attend. A registration form will be sent home with students on Monday, January 31st. Please be sure to register for this literacy event. This session is presented in partnership with the PEI Home and School Federation through the Parent Engagement Initiative. Watch for a session for parents of children in Grades 3-6 on April 12th from 6:30-7:30 pm.
Winter Carnival has been scheduled for Saturday, March 12th from 10-12. Stay tuned for more details of this fun family event.
