Although everyday, it is important that students wear comfortable clothing, bring a jacket or layered clothing, and wear shoes appropriate and safe for outdoor play and Physical Education, please know that clothing will likely get messy on their specials day. Be sure to dress your child in clothing that is okay to get dirty. They will have a lot of fun in the garden, art, physical education and other specials classes on their "special" day. The specials schedule is as follows:

Kindergarten: Friday
Grade 1: Monday
Grade 2: Thursday
Grade 3: Tuesday
Grade 4: Thursday, 12:20-3:35 p.m.
