Poppies and Remembrance Day Ceremony

Dear Parents, 

Please join us on November 12th from 10:30-11:30 a.m  in the gymnasium for our Remembrance Day Service. Children are invited to wear their Sparks/Brownie,  Beavers/Cubs uniforms and take part in an Honour Guard leading to the gym from the front foyer. 

Students will have an opportunity to get poppies before and on the day of November 12th by giving a small donation which helps with veterans activities/programs offered through the Royal Canadian Legion. (A loonie is suggested.) 

Many Thanks,

John da Costa
