Week Summary for October 26th – 30th

Dear Families,

Please take a moment to review the attached Code of Conduct. This year we updated our Code of Conduct to align with the Core Competencies that are in the BC curriculum. Please also review the Code of Conduct with your child/ren.  Code of Conduct 2020.pdf

The New Westminster Schools’ website has lots of important information about Halloween in schools. Please take a moment to review this link:

It is extremely important that all costumes worn at school are inclusive, and do not include any replica weapons. If you have any questions about Halloween at Connaught please reach out to your child’s classroom teacher.

Please see the attached flyer for information about a community support for families who are parenting a child with mental health challenges. FAMSMART-PiR_brochure2020.pdf

    • We will be celebrating Halloween at Connaught, so if you wish for your child to dress up they are welcome to. If your child’s costume has any loose parts I encourage you to keep them at home, as those do occasionally get lost at school. Remember that costumes cannot contain any weapons.
    • Every year Connaught does a Halloween parade. This year we are unable to meet in the gym, so we will be watching the weather. If the weather is good we will go outside and do the parade, but if the weather is not good we will have to cancel the parade for this year. Due to Covid-19 and the uncertainty around the parade, we are unable to have families attend this year.
