Each year, the arrival of cold weather creates new challenges for some of our families. We ask students to come prepared to school with warm winter jackets, toques, glove or mittens and – once the snow arrives – snow pants. If students don’t have proper winter wear it becomes difficult to enjoy the snow forts and sledding. To avoid having students shivering in wet clothes for the remainder of the day, the school rule is that students without the proper clothing aren’t permitted to take part in sledding or
climbing around on the snow piles. This rule is not intended to be punitive; no one enjoys being the FUN police, but we do want to prevent kids from being miserable after recess and lunch. So, in an effort to ensure that our students are comfortably clothed for the winter season, we would like to request your second hand winter wear (specifically jackets and snow pants). If some families have youth-sized winter jackets/pants that they no longer need and would be willing to donate to our school, we will do our best to match them with students in need.
Thank you for your consideration!
