2 PROFESSIONAL DEVLOPMENT DAYS (PROD), NO SCHOOL:

Friday, February 26th and Monday February 29th are Professional Development Days, and there is NO SCHOOL for students on those days.

VALENTINE’S DAY PROJECT: 

Duncan Cran school has planned an initiative for Valentine’s Day. Each class will sign one or two boxes of Valentine’s Day cards. We will be delivering them to the hospital and Care Home on February 12th. The cards will be placed on meal trays for the patients and residents. We would also like to have enough cards to give to the hospital and care home staff, chemotherapy patients and Senior Day Care.  If you could please donate a box of new cards to the office we would appreciate it. We are looking for at least 5 more boxes.  Thank you to the people who have donated boxes to us, we appreciate it.

SCHOLASTIC BOOK FAIR

From February 1st – February 5th there will be a scholastic book fair held in the library. It will be open at lunch and after school for a half hour. Students will visit the fair during their library time but feel free to come with your child after school if you prefer.

Next PAC meeting;

The next PAC meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, February 16, 2016 at 7:00pm in the Duncan Cran library. As always, babysitting will be provided.

SPRING CARNIVAL, APRIL 28, 2016:

Duncan Cran is hosting our spring carnival on Thursday April 28, 2016 from 6:00-8:00pm and we are looking for items for our raffle table.

We are asking each classroom to work together to make a theme basket to be raffled off. If each child could bring 1 item to put in the basket, the class’s accumulation would be huge! On the afternoon of April 22, 2016 we will gather all the items from your child’s classroom and put the baskets together. Since these items will be collected for the raffle table, we are asking for new items only.

The classroom themes are:

Fun in the Sun – Mrs. Oakley & Mrs. Zackodnik

Movie Night – Mrs. Powers & Mrs. Collins

Rainy Day Fun – Ms. Demers & Mrs. Brody

Family Camp Out – Ms. Sorensen & Mrs. Cochrane

Family Night – Mr. North & Mr. Davies

Day In the Park – Mr. English, Mrs. Bradley & Mr. Clements

We are looking forward to some very creative baskets from each of the classrooms and would like to thank you in advance for your support.

Happy February!
