through

this

This
will
not
be
a
major
fundraiser
as
it
was
last
year.
The
intention
is
simply
to
allow
for
renewals.
Any
new
subscriptions
are
welcome
at
that
time.
It
is
anticipated
that
information
will
go
out
in
November.
Visitors

the

book
for
your

please

it

up
your

you
must
report
to
the
office
and
sign
them
out;
he/she
will
then
be
sent
to
the

to
meet
you.
If
there
is
a
discipline
problem
which
requires
further
investigation,
please
report
the
details
to
the
classroom
teacher
or
the
office.
Under
no
circumstances
may
a
parent
approach
a
student
other

their
own
child.
During
regular
school
hours,
the

their
full
attention

Safety
of
Students
We
remind
families
that
we
are
concerned
about
young
students
visiting
Mr.
Sub
at
the
Wellness
Centre
on
their
own.
Once
again
we
remind
you
that
with
the
presence
of
another
local
secondary
school,
there
are
many
more
young
adults
present
at
that
location.
For
the
safety
of
our
students,
we
recommend
that
if
your
son/daughter
is
planning
to
visit
the
Mr.
Sub
with
their
friends,
there
should
be
an
adult
or
parent
present
with
the
group.
