Each year we create a Wall of Honour in our school to remember and honour relatives of our students who have served our country in the past or are currently serving today. If your child has a relative who is/was a veteran of war please fill out the form being sent home with all Kindergarten students and any other new students to our school today. Keep in mind we keep these from year to year, so if you have already submitted a form in a previous year, we will still have that on file. However, if you didn’t submit in the past but would like to this year, copies of the Wall of Honour are available at the office. Please have all forms returned by Friday, October 19 in order to allow us time to prepare.
Photo proofs from Lifetouch went home with students last week. The deadline for sending paper order forms to the school is Wednesday, October 17, 2018. Please note, Lifetouch does offer online ordering as well at mylifetouch.ca.
Retakes will take place on the morning of Friday, October 26. If you need to have a retake, please have your child return their proofs to the photographer on retake day. If your child missed photo day in September, they will be photographed on October 26. In either case, please ensure your child’s teacher is aware they need to be photographed on October 26.
CHE will be collecting coats, hats, mittens, boots, etc. your child may have outgrown for the VOCM Cares Coats for Kids Campaign on October 9, 10 & 11. Donations can be dropped to the school office on either of these days. Thank you.
CHE will be collecting non-perishable food items for the Community Food Sharing Association the week of October 1 – 4. Metrobus will be here to collect our donations on Thursday morning. Thank you in advance to all who are able to send in a donation to our food drive next week.
Picture Day is Monday, September 24. ALL students will be photographed by Lifetouch for our school files. A printed proof and pricing details will be sent home with your child 4-6 weeks after picture day, so you will have the opportunity to review before purchasing a package, if you wish to do so.
Cowan Heights Elementary will once again participate in the Terry Fox Walk. This year we are planning to walk on Friday, September 21. Students in Grades 1 – 7 will leave for our walk at 1:30pm on Friday. Please look for a permission slip that went home with all students on Monday and return it to your child’s teacher no later than Thursday. (Kindergarten students will have their walk on Friday morning). We are encouraging any student who can, to please donate a loonie or toonie to this worth while cause. Don’t forget to dress for the weather on Friday!
Curriculum Night for parents is Wednesday, September 12. Please note classroom teachers will offer two different sessions to allow parents to attend more than one session, if necessary. The first session will begin at 7:00pm and the second session will begin at 7:30pm. This night provides you the opportunity to meet your child’s teacher and learn more about classroom routines and expectations. We look forward to seeing you on Wednesday evening.
