- The mornings can be chilly, while the afternoons can be hot. Dress in layers or bring a few items to keep your fingers, ears and toes warm.
- Pack/wear thin gloves or bike gloves
- Pack/wear a windbreaker or rain jacket
- Pack a thin toque or buff if you have one for your ears.
- Shorts might be ok, but pants with elastic cuffs are good to ride in. Rain pants make a nice layer at camp if it is windy or cool.
- Pack a warmer layer (fleece jacket or similar) to wear at camp if it is cold.
- Wool socks stay warm, even if they get wet from the damp morning grass.
Parent-teacher conferences will take place via Zoom on Tuesday Oct. 6th from 4-8 pm and Wednesday Oct. 7th from 8am-1pm. These conferences are intended to provide parents with a mid-term snapshot of student progress. A Conference Manager link will be sent out by Oct. 2nd for you to sign up for your conference. If you feel you will need more than the 10 minutes allocated for a parent-teacher conference, please schedule a separate meeting with your child’s teachers and do not schedule a time on Oct. 6-7.

Lost and Found
Our Lost and Found is now on the website at connectcharter.ca/lost-and-found.
We are making efforts to minimize the need to touch clothing due to COVID concerns. Items not claimed at the end of each term will be donated to charity. Please ensure your child’s belongings are clearly labelled to increase the chances of retrieving them if lost.
Have a wonderful week everyone,
