Weekly Newsletter - REFORMATTED
Hi everyone,
My apologies - there was a glitch in the formatting of Sunday Nights Newsletter. 

It appears that we are right back in the swing of things and, as the shortest school term of the year at 8 weeks, I am sure this term will fly past. Last week saw the start of the Intermediate chess club which is held on a Tuesday and Wednesday, this week Choir practices for all levels  will resume (Tues and Thurs morning before school)  and the next school Friday our  Friday lunch time games and art will be back in action.

I thought this was worthy of a 2nd special mention. The North Vancouver RCMP will be holding a presentation on social media : Social Awareness: Parenting the Connected Kid Going Beyond Safety. Presented by Jesse Millar. Social media.  This is a concern for many parents in today's technology driven world. Whether or not your child is currently old enough to have an electronic devise with access to social media sites, this presentation will be of value. The tickets are free but require a reservation. See below for more details. 

Please note that this Friday (16 Jan) is a Non Instructional Day for Carisbrooke
