*Thank you to our families who have sent in all of the important paperwork this past week (School supplies, verification forms, walking permission form, Aboriginal Education permission forms etc.) Mrs. Shantz and Ms. Girodat's classes are the lucky pizza party winners for getting all of their forms in!
