As We March into November

The Halloween Dance was a big success, with some amazing costumes and pumpkin carvings and LOTS of interest in the Haunted Hallway. Congratulations to all the contest winners. We hope it was a great warm-up for this Friday's trek around your neighbourhood to do some trick-or-treating!

The Magazine Campaign, our primary fundraiser, was very successful again this year. Thanks to Krystal Mayne and Joanne Condon for all their hard work and dedication as co-chairs of the campaign. And a big THANK YOU to you, our school community, for all the support! The executive will be making decisions soon regarding how to spend the funds, based on requests from school staff and administration. If you have any suggestions for projects, please let us know. We value your suggestions and input.

We had a great turn-out for our first Home and School Meeting on October 14th. Thanks to all who attended as we kicked off another school year at West Royalty. The minutes of all our meetings, as well as financial statements, are posted on our H&S Website for your information.

Now we march into November and, dare I say it, the lead-up to the Christmas season!! Mark your calendar for our next H&S meeting on November 4th at 6:30 pm in the staff lounge at the school. All are welcome to attend!

Feels like Octobrrrr!

Now that fall is officially upon us, our committees are busy working in and around West Royalty School. If you missed the opportunity to sign up to volunteer at Meet the Staff Night, it's NOT too late. Just let us know what you are interested in and we will work with you to find the right fit.

Do you have a green thumb? We are planning to tackle the front garden beds at the school this Saturday, October 4th at 10 am. Grab the kids, rubber boots, garden gloves, and any tools you have handy... we will work together to "spruce" up the entry to our school.

Join us on Wednesday, October 8th (Rain date: 15th) for our annual Walk to School Day. We are hoping to have groups leaving from 5 locations again this year. If you are available to volunteer at one of the following, or if you want to form a group of your own, please let us know: Stockman Drive, Upton Park, Soccer Field Entrance by Park West, Parricus Mead Subdivision, and West Royalty Community Centre.

Our first Home & School Meeting of the year is scheduled for October 14th at 6:30 pm in the staff room. If you have any agenda items, please let us know. All are welcome!
