Annual Ticket Draw:
Once again this year we are sponsoring a Christmas Ticket Draw. This event is one of the major yearly fundraisers for our school. Money raised helps support extra programming and curriculum resources for students. We are sending home three books per family. Tickets cost $1.00 each or a book of 6 for $5.00.

While student participation in any fundraising event at St. Augustine’s school is voluntary, we do appreciate any help you can provide by way of the sale or purchase of these tickets.

We ask that all ticket stubs, money and any unsold tickets be returned to your child’s teacher no later than Friday, December 18th. If you sell these and would like more please return your initial three books of stubs and money prior to getting your extra tickets. If you have any questions please call the school. Once again, thank you for your continued support for the students of St. Augustine’s Elementary.


Scholastic Book Fair:
Our annual Scholastic Book Fair is currently ongoing . As usual, our family day will be held during parent-teacher interviews. Please allow some extra time to drop in and have a look. Don't forget to enter your name in the prize draw for your chance to win books for your child  and his / her  classroom library. Teachers will also have their “Wish List” posted on the Library Door. These are books that teachers would like to add to their classroom libraries for students to read. If you can, we encourage you to purchase one of these books that will be placed in your child’s classroom.

Annual Christmas Dinner for Students:
The lunch envelope indicates that there is no Turkey Dinner for Students. There were some issues around sufficient volunteers to have the dinner this year. It was a difficult decision to make as it has become a tradition that all of our students and staff look forward to.


Our School Council, Staff and KES Volunteers are working on a plan to have the dinner this year on the last day before Christmas break. While not confirmed yet, things are looking positive. We will let parents and guardians know next week if this is confirmed.


Christmas Break:
School will close for the Christmas Break on Wednesday, December 21st and reopen on Tuesday, January 3rd.

Students Dressing for Outside Playtime:
Now that the weather is getting colder we remind parents and guardians that children come to school dressed appropriately for going outside at lunchtime. This would include warm coat, mittens/gloves, hat and appropriate footwear. All students are expected to go outside at lunch time when the weather cooperates. Days that the temperature (with wind chill) drops below -10C, we will stay inside..

Remind App:
If you have not already done so, we encourage you to sign up for our remind app. If you use texting this is a great way to get school announcements sent you. This will be used in addition to our other means of communication for sharing information. If you have already done so, we encourage you to spread the word.

Temporary Changes to Bus Drop-off and Pick-up
Due to the deteriorating condition of the bus lane around the school, the buses will be dropping students off and picking them up at the main entrance of the school. This should only be a temporary measure until the pot-holes are filled.
While this is occurring we ask that parents who are driving their children to school please be patient and exercise extra caution when entering and leaving the parking lot. Please remember that if the red lights are flashing motorists are not permitted to pass a school bus. Walkers will continue to be dismissed from the side exits. Grade K-3 the exit facing Jackson United Church. Grades 4 - 6 the exit facing Ridgeway Variety
