Hi everyone

A spooky hello for the last week of October. Don't forget Thursday is our much anticipated HALLOWEEN DANCE  to be held in our school gym starting @ 5:00 p.m. followed by the traditional school Primary Halloween Parade on Friday morning. If you can contribute any baked goods please sign up or just bring them to the gym on the morning of the dance. Thank you to everyone who has signed up for various volunteer positions and baked goods already. 

It seems that many parents are parking in St. Kilda to pick up their children at 3:00 p.m. St. Kilda is closed to traffic on school day morning drop off (8:30 to 9:30 a.m.) and school day pick up (2:30 to 3:
30 p.m). If you need any more information around our traffic rules please click here.

Our volunteer crossing guards are doing a fantasic job at morning drop off and we would like to thank them for their commitment. It would be great if we could have crossing guard volunteers at pick up (from 2:45 p.m. to 3:15 p.m.) but currently do not have enough Volunteers. If you can take a shift, please contact Jennifer our Crossing Guard coordinator.
Don't forget early dismissal this week on Wednesday!

Halloween Family Dance 5-8p.m.
Don't miss the Halloween Family Dance.  All families are welcome and please remember parents must accompany their children. Dress up and come and have some fun. Please sign up to bring  baked goods or just bring them to the gym in the morning. We are looking for cookies, mini cupcakes, squares (no nuts). They will be sold for $1 each - so not too large. We are also still looking for Halloween Decorations so if you have anything to lend us, please label it and pop it in the green hamper outside the library. You can pick it up after the dance or the following morning. 
Lost and Found 
The CPAC is posting a photograph of the lost and found items on our website ( that is changed every week. Please take your time and check it out under - Home -

Volunteers Needed - Friday Lunchtime Activities 
Starting in November, the library will be open on Fridays during lunch for students who wish to escape the cold, rainy weather and play board games with their friends. To make this happen we need a few parents to help supervise. If you are interested and can commit to 1 Friday/month 12-1 pm. November through March, please contact Rebecca at
