The cafeteria will be serving the annual holiday lunch on Wednesday December 10th and Thursday December 11th. A separate letter with an attached response form was sent last week.
Your responses were required by Wednesday December 3rd at the latest. The cafeteria will not be serving any other meals on either one of these days, therefore students who are not ordering the holiday lunch on the designated day for their homeroom MUST bring a lunch on that day.
In addition, if your child’s homeroom is having the holiday lunch on the Wednesday, then he/she must bring a lunch from home on the Thursday.
The serving schedule is as follows:
Wednesday December 10th: rooms 4, 5, 8, 10, 15, 19, 22, 23, 24, 27,
Thursday December 11th: rooms 14, 16, 20, 28, 29, 30, 31, 32, 34, 35, 36, 40
Holiday Food Drive
Once again, our food drive campaign will run from December 3rd to December 13th. Every year, the Nesbitt Family generously donates non perishable food items to those less fortunate in our community. We warmly welcome any requests for food baskets from our families. Any personal requests will remain confidential. Kindly speak to our school secretary, Ms. Sophia for any assistance. It would be our pleasure to assist you.
Door Decorating Contest
In the spirit of the season, the Nesbitt students and their teachers will be participating in a holiday decorating contest. Each homeroom will be responsible for finding creative ways to decorate their classroom door and the entire Nesbitt Staff will be voting for the winning class. Snowmen, Santa, reindeer or a winter scene... let’s put our creativity to the test!
Many of our Grade 6 students have now had two “United Without Violence” workshops with our Community Police Office, Fatima Pereira. The focus of this program, overseen by Mr. Bob, is to encourage the students to adopt non-violent behavior and to speak out against bullying. A number of the students will now be visiting classes from Kindergarten to Grade 5 to explain the program and their role. These students will be wearing a special “TOGETHER AGAINST VIOLENCE” t-shirt to promote positive behaviour and act as student mediators in school and in the schoolyard. The program provides reward vouchers which will be given to students who exhibit good conflict resolution and speak out against bullying or negative behaviour. All vouchers will be put in a draw for a monthly prize.
From Our Family to Yours,
HAPPY HOLIDAYS & A HAPPY, HEALTHY NEW YEAR!
