Dear Holly Families,
The start to our 2016-2017 school year has gone very well. Kids are beginning to settle and our Kindergarten students are now attending regular hours. As September goes on, the weather may continue to deteriorate. Please ensure your children come dressed approprately for all weather conditions. This may include coats, boots, and some idoor shoes if needed. It is also suggested that our younger students have a change of clothes in case they slip or find an extra-deep puddle to splash in. This is especially important as we will try to get the kids outside as often as possible for fresh air at recess and lunch. Also, flu season is beginning, so please help us remind the kids to wash their hands as often as possible. If your child shows any symptoms of illness, please keep them at home and report the absence to the office.
On Friday, Sept 30 Holly will be having a Terry Fox Run. Our fundraising goal is to collect $2.00 from every student in our 'Toonies for Terry" campaign in the week leading up to the run.
The Grade 6's are heading to camp this year. Thanks to everyone who purchased pie and cookie dough and an extra big thank you to the parents who processed the orders.
Our Bold Vision is supported by:

Parking Lot - Drop Off and Pick Up Procedures
Please note that we continue to have the Pick Up/Drop Off zone along the side of the parking lot closest to the field. Parents are not to leave their cars - your child is to meet you there if that is the plan. Your child can see you from the parking lot corner near the turn-about or from the field. Parking is available along the other side of the parking lot by the sidewalk and hedge. We also have parking in the middle of the lot and there is also parking on the West side of the school at Association Park and the Turf Parking lot. Finally, please watch for students. Pedestrians (students/parents) are to use the walkways, paths, sidewalks and crosswalks while around the parking lot. Drivers, please use absolute caution in our lot for the safety of our children.
Our school phone number is 604-946-0218; Absentee Line: 604-946-5938.If your child is going to be away, please call and leave a message.
