January 3, 2018 . Wishing all our families a great 2018. School opens back up on Monday, January 8th, 2018. Looking forward to seeing everyone.
The Elves have been so busy at Robert Ogilvie School . Time to get some elf traps.
Remember that we have Mingle Jingle on Thursday from 6:00 – 7:30 p.m. We are in need of cakes and cupcakes for the cake walk.
Thank you to all to everyone who supported our Scholastic Book Fair in May and in October. Combined these book raised over $4000 in funds to support our school learning. Here is a picture of some of the item purchased. We have purchased materials to support library, Language Arts, numeracy, Science, Fine Arts, ADST and First Nations Learning. We couldn’t do this without your support.
A very cold week ahead is in the forecast. Please remember to dress warmly. On Friday, November 17th, we have a student challenge. Students are to dress up as their favourite book character (or one of their favourite characters). House team points will be given for each child dressed as a book character. It will be interesting to see what characters come to school.
At Robert Ogilvie Elementary School, we try to have some fun. Here are some pictures of students playing in the snow, students receiving recognition awards and Mr. MacKay being duck taped to the wall. The house team challenge for the Terry Fox Run was successful and so the students chose to duck tape Mr. MacKay to the wall.
Thank you to Coles Books and the Adopt a School Program for providing our school with $3165 in gift cards for new books . Mrs. Dressler and Mrs. Scheck are pleased to announce that we have spent $1700 so far on new books for the library from these gift cards. Below is a picture of the books purchased to date. The students will be so excited to get these books out of the library to read.
