Dewson Garden Clean-up – This Sunday May 3, 10:30am

Can you come out to Dewson this Sunday morning to help with a garden/school yard clean up with your kids?

It’s a great Sunday morning activity and the kids will love it. We can station a parent to watch the play equipment if the children burn out of cleaning but we suspect they’ll love shoveling the chips back where they belong.

Its going to be nice out so we plan to picnic at school right after. Join in please, we really need the help. (bring your rakes, gloves, clippers, big brooms, edgers, paper/garbage bags etc.)

We’ll meet at 10:30am in front of the school and then spread out to various parts of the grounds.

Free compost from the city will be available from the city in the Dewson parking lot at 10am.
The Eco Team.

Dewson Dialogue

 

This week we have been reminding students about the rule of no cards allowed at school, in the playground or on the bus.  Specifically we mean no pokemon cards and no magic cards.  In the past we have had clubs where games can be played however that is under the supervision of a teacher.  We have seen an increase in the number of cards at school which have caused numerous conflicts.  Please support our school by reminding your child of the rules and ensuring that the cards remain at home.

Today we reminded all students that all boots, winter gear etc needs to be taken home.  All cubbies need to be cleaned and kept clean.  Lunch bags etc need to be taken home.  The lost and found also needs to be checked because we will be taking the excess clothing etc. and giving it to support needy families.

 

Have a great weekend.
