What's Happening

Locust School certainly had a wonderful month of November! The children were all busy and eager readers earning their “frequent flyer miles” with PARP learning all about how reading can certainly take you many places. They also enjoyed a special visit from the High School Students with a presentation of their “High School Musical” performance. We hope to see many of our Locust families at the next joint primary PTA meeting which will be on December 3rd hosted at Hemlock School at 9:30AM. The focus will be on the new Teachers College Readers Workshop Curriculum and how it is being applies to our primary schools.   

We wish everyone the warmest Season’s Greeting and a Happy and Healthy New Year!
