Daily Announcements Announcements<p><strong>Date: Friday October 19, 2018 </strong></p><p><strong>Day: </strong>(SCDSB 5 Day Cycle) <strong>Day 3</strong></p><p>1. Today's Waste Reduction Week theme is food waste. Did you know that 40% of all food produced in Canada is wasted each year! We can reduce food waste by planning our meals with parents and making grocery lists. Also, take home leftovers from your lunch. Putting food in the garbage creates Methane gas which is 25 times more damaging to our climate than CO2.   Some other great ways to decrease our food waste is by storing fruits and vegetables properly so they last longer, thinking about expiry dates and getting creative with leftovers. Take the Food Waste pledge at and help take care of planet earth, our only home.</p><p>2.  Get your pop, pop, popcorn in the front foyer today during first nutritional break. There are three flavors to choose from, dill pickle, kettle corn and white cheddar. Each bag costs $1.00.

Reminder RE: Dismissal Time! RE: Dismissal Time! <p class="x_MsoNormal">​<strong>REMINDER ABOUT OUR DISMISSAL TIME...</strong></p><p class="x_MsoNormal">In the last few weeks, we have begun to experience a high number of phone calls about changes to pick up arrangements and/or parent pick ups of students before our 3:15pm dismissal time. </p><p class="x_MsoNormal">Even picking up your child at 3pm daily ends up equaling a block of instructional time each week that our students miss.  Thus, we remind you of our dismissal time of 3:15pm, and ask that any changes to pick up arrangements be written in a note and or called into the office earlier in the day - <strong>no later than 2:45pm each day.  </strong></p><p class="x_MsoNormal"><strong>We cannot ensure after 2:45pm that the teacher or your child will be able to get the message in time.</strong></p>

The team started the tournament off with two solid wins against both Creemore and New Lowell. Next the played the former County Champions Nottawa and they were able to secure a few touchdowns but in the end came up short.  During their final game of round robin play against St. Mary's under raining, cold and wet conditions the team struggled to keep the score close.
