Wednesday, December 21st
Miss Lilley's Class is going SKATING!  Please send your child with their skates and a helmet on this day.  If they need to BORROW skates, please let Miss Lilley know as soon as possible, so we can arrange to borrow skates for your child.  We do have some skates and some helmets at the school...but there are many other children that may need to borrow as well.  We will do our absolute best to accommodate each child, with enough notice!

On Wednesday, December 21st, our class will be going skating at ATB Centre from 12:45-1:45pm.  We will be leaving the school at 12:30pm and back by 2:00ish (we may leave the ice a little early to ensure we are back for the bell).  We are looking for parent drivers to help out with this field trip.

Thank you to the parents of Onyx, Donovan, Walker, Addy, Zoe, Jensen, Astrid, Avery, Ronin, Blake and Lyncoln who have offered to come and drive, and/ or supervise on this day!! If you would like to join us and you are not on this list, please contact me through Class Dojo, or by emailing me at:

Families are also welcome to come and skate, as well.  As per district policy, ALL students must wear a CAA approved hockey helmet.  Bike helmets are NOT permitted.  There are extra helmets available at the arena.  If your child is in need of skates, please let Miss Lilley know!
When we return from Skating, we will be doing some Christmas Cookie Decorating!  Thank you to the following parents for offering to bring supplies for this.  FYI: We have 24 students in the class.
