Grade 2&3 Track & Field - Tuesday April 29

Grade 2&3 Track & Field Activities
Tuesday, April 29 12:50-3:10 (Rain Date : Wednesday, April 30)


The Grade 2&3 students will be participating in Primary Track & Field Activities at Fern from 12:50 to 3:10.

The purpose of this event is:
1. to have students try their personal best at events
2. to promote a healthy lifestyle and good sportsmanship as a part of their Health and Physical Education and
3. to create grade 2 and grade 3 Track and Field Team for the Regional meet on May 21.

For a student to be invited to join the school team, they must
1. regularly follow the school and class rules
2. be up to date with their school work and
3. have good results from the Fern Track and Field Day.

The activities will include the standing long jump, the running long jump, a sprint (approx. 60 m), and other fun activities (a play area, skipping/hop scotch, and juice refreshments).

Students need to:
- wear/bring running shoes and appropriate clothing
- bring/wear a hat and sunscreen if needed
- students will be offered a juice box and will be allowed to use the school fountain, but if you want your child to bring a water bottle, clearly label it to avoid confusion as many look similar/identical or if it is misplaced, it can be returned to its owner.

The staff and I look forward to an active and memorable afternoon for all participants.

Sincerely,
Andrew Fennell Archdekin
Primary Track and Field Coach

If you haven’t already, don’t forget to take our survey and help revitalize recess!

The Power of Play is a recently formed Parent Council Committee. Our goal is to blend opportunities for play into the overall school day to promote greater academic, social, emotional, physical and creative-well being among Fern students. But before we do, it is important to us that we know what you, Fern Students and Parents, think.

Take the Power of Play survey at: http://fernavenuepublicschool.blogspot.ca between now and April 13th. It should take you about 10 minutes to fill out. Your feedback will help identify what opportunities for play we consider.

Results of the survey will be made available at the May 2014 Parent Council Meeting and on the Fern school blog. Thank you in advance for your participation. Your input is important and highly valued. Together, let’s play!

Getting tired of packing school lunches?

Spring is finally here! Would you like to spend more time outside and less time wondering what to pack in your child’s lunch bag that will actually be eaten?

Why not sign up for Fern’s lunch program for the rest of the school year? Maggie's lunches appeal to parents’ concern about nutrition yet also to students’ desire for something delicious. The spring menu features yummy dishes such as lemony chicken burger, rotini lasagna, crispy fish and pizza – your kids won’t even notice that they’re healthy! (Check out May's menu)

Simply fill out and submit the form with your payment by Thursday, April 17. A secure deposit box is located outside the Ferncliff Daycare office (Room 103).

Thanks,
Fern Food Committee
