Thank you to all the teachers, parents and staff for the successful Teacher Parent conferences this week. It was so nice to be back in the school and speak to the teachers in person, if you were able to.
With Halloween tomorrow, here’s hoping for rain free trick or treating for all our little ghosts and goblins! If the weather holds up, the children’s costume parade will be held at Memorial Field at 11:10am and parents are welcome to attend to see the children in all their Halloween glory!! If it rains, then the parade will be held indoors and families will not be able to attend.
Reminder: Please remember to keep fairy wands that might get lost and toy swords and weapons at home as these aren’t appropriate for school even if they are part of a costume theme.
Fall Fund Drive — FINAL WEEK
Thanks to everyone who has contributed to the Fall Fund Drive! We are falling short of our goal for this year and need a push to make sure we have the funds to contribute to our teachers and direct classroom experiences for our children.
This is our only fundraiser where you will receive a Tax Receipt! With year-end fast approaching, here is your chance to get another tax receipt. Contribute directly to activities for the school without buying "stuff". BUT worry not, if you like all the stuff ... we will still have clothing and chocolate sales coming (see below for Purdy’s Fundraiser details)!
As a PAC we believe in supporting our teachers and encouraging their creativity and experimentation by supplementing VSB or non-VSB funded programs. With this added support from our Livingstone community, we can ensure our teachers are not out of pocket as they enrich our children's education. Our goal is $50 per student.

Some School Reminders
Photo Retakes: Will be this week, Thursday November 3
Rainy Day Clothing: Please make sure to send your child to school each day with a raincoat and appropriate shoes. We recommend that all students at least keep one change of clothes: extra pants, socks, and shirt at school to change out of wet clothes in case they get wet during recess and lunch.
