Kids Eat Smart:
February Recipe and Nutrition Box


Lunch Program:
The lunch envelope for the three week period (January 16 - February 3) was sent home on January 9th. Envelopes should be returned by Friday, January 13th.  Click for a copy of the menu. Just a reminder that if your child is bringing a lunch please keep healthy eating in mind.

You will note that we have reduced our lunch program to 3 days per week. This is because of limited volunteers. Meals for our Kids Eat Smart Lunch Program are prepared and served solely by volunteers. This is different than the School Lunch Program operating in several schools in St. Johnís which employs a worker to prepare meals. Without volunteers we can not run our program. The Kids Eat Smart Program has been operating at St. Augustineís for over 15 years and we would like to see it continue.

We are once again appealing to the members of our school community to consider volunteering a few hours a week with our lunch program. If you would like to learn more about whatís involved please contact our coordinator Ms. Jackie Wiseman at 488-2615, email at jackwise101@gmail.com or find her on FaceBook.

It is our hope that we can return to a five day program soon. In the meantime please note that on Tuesdays and Thursdays there will be no lunch program as well as no heat-up service available. If a child brings an item that requires heating we will have to inform you to bring in an alternate meal. Parents and guardians are free to drop off a heated item just prior to lunch if you desire.   
We would like to extend a thank you to our volunteers who have been running the program so far and who have taken on extra days to ensure we could maintain a 5 day program for this long.  

School Development Day- January 23
There will be no school for students on Monday, January 23. This will be a staff professional development day as we work on our school literacy goal of our school development plan. Our program specialist from the School District will be here to work with teachers on analyzing reading records to inform reading instruction and creating next steps based on individual student reading goals. When students return on Tuesday, it will be Day 6 on the schedule and since it is a Tuesday there will be no lunch served on that day.

School Pictures
If you missed the deadline for ordering school pictures itís still not too late to place your order online. Just follow the instructions that were included on the picture proof sheet.

Family Literacy Day:
Friday, January 27 is family Literacy Day in Canada. Every year we do activities at the school to celebrate this day. There will be more information sent home in the near future about this. To learn more visit http://abclifeliteracy.ca/family-literacy

Active Living Webpage:
We would like to call your attention to Mr. Coseís Active Living page. There you will find many great resources to healthy and active living.

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
