Kids Eat Smart:
February Recipe and Nutrition Box
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
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 email@example.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
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.
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
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.
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
Due to students and staff with allergies
we ask that the following items not be brought into our school.
Peanuts, and Shell Fish products.
We also ask that students and visitors to our school
refrain from wearing scented products.
