School will be closed on Monday, November 11th
for Remembrance Day. We will re-open on Tuesday, November 12th.
Walton honoured Remembrance Day today. We had
presentations from our Grade 3 divisions (Mrs. Meadows, Ms. Pass, Ms. Wegrich,
Mrs. Shum and Mrs. Sluis’ classes) perform “Where Do We Find Peace?” and the
Walton Choir performed “Come in From the Firefly Darkness”.
Thanks to Mr. Dyer-Dietz for his work with both groups. Thanks to
Mrs. Rajwani and Mrs. Peragine's Division 3 for starting our ceremony with ‘O
Canada’ in both English and French. Mr. Meston returned to play the
bagpipes as each division presented their wreath. I’d like to thank all
of you for your generous donations to the Poppy Fund. We haven’t counted
the monies, but it’s clear we have more donations this year. The
donations will help the Canadian Legion and our veterans.
I hope that your family takes time to attend one of
the Remembrance Day ceremonies in our community. Here are the four ceremonies
in our area, as reported in the Tri-City News:

Does anyone have an old juke box? Our Winter
Musical is called “Jingle Bell Jukebox” and it would be great if we had a juke
box as a prop. If you do have an old juke box and you’re willing to let
us use it, please let me know! Thanks! We found that most of the
kids don’t know what a jukebox is.
Your child will receive their first report card on
December 6th. Please keep in mind that all report cards will
be using proficiency scales. This includes Grades 4 and 5, who have
traditionally received letter grades. This information was shared back in
