Our weather has been quite mild which resulted in muddy fields and large puddles. Please bring a pair of indoor shoes to help keep our floors and carpets clean. A change of clothes for the younger grades is also highly recommended.
We have had a team come in to wipe down many rooms in the school as we've had many students ill with symptoms of vomiting and diarrhea. Please keep students home if they are sick to prevent the spread of illness.
Just a reminder that there is supervision in both the North and South yard in the morning from 8:40 am till the bell. Please remember that if your child arrives after Oh Canada, please have them sign in at the office before going to class.
Have a super week!

We have started a new program this year at Bessborough! It is called Movement Matters! This is for grades 1-6. We will be in the big gym at 8:20am where we will be playing games and getting some exercise. If your child is in daycare we will pick them up from daycare. We have gone around to the 1-6 classes so they should have a understanding of what the program is!
