3. Programming

We have some special programming planned. One special event will be Carnivale on Saturday, February 25th. Parents will be invited to celebrate with your children. The children will have some special guests coming to visit, as well, they may go on an off-site visit. A field trip consent form (walking) will be sent home. Lastly, we are planning an International Cafe for the last day on Saturday, April 29th. Parents, please plan to join us and bring along some special treats. 

4. New SMCDSB - "App"
