> Bring a picnic lunch, lawn chairs or a blanket to eat on. Weather permitting, everyone will eat outside on the playground.
> Please note that if you are buying restaurant food locally, we are not the only school having a picnic and lines will likely be very, very long. You may need to plan ahead so you can arrive on time.
At 11:45 a.m. –
Kindergarten and Grade 1 students will be waiting for you in their classrooms.
Grades 2, 3 and 4 students will wait at a designated place on the playground – See Map below
grade 2’s will be in the bus loading zone
grade 3’s will be near the garden boxes
grade 4’s will be near the swings near 3rd St.
Each class will hold a sign so that you can easily find them.
At 12:50, the recess bell will go for students to return to their classes. At this time, families need to pack up and free up the playground as this space will be used for our afternoon activities.
> Contingency plan for rain — Families may spread out throughout the school and have an indoor picnic with their children. All of our indoor spaces will be open to parents and students.
> If you are taking your child home after the picnic, you need to let the office know either by email, by phone or check in before you leave.
> Lost and Found — Please take a look at the tables in the foyer for any lost items.
We look forward to spending some time with you celebrating a successful school year.
