A friendly reminder to parents and guardians of
George Bissett that the parking lot should not be used after 8:00
a.m. when dropping off students to Excel or waiting for the 8:10
bell. Parents and Guardians wishing to drop off their children can
still do so from Arklow and enter the school ground from either the
path or the entry in the fence. We kindly remind all students, as
well as parents, to use the crosswalk at all times.
Thank you for your attention in this safety matter.
School closures will be announced on the radio
by 6:30 am unless, of course, school is closed through the school
day. If school is closed through the day, the announcement will be
on the radio by 11:00 a.m. The closures will be announced by feeder
school: we are a “feeder school” for Cole Harbour High. Listen
carefully to the announcements.
Welcome Back Students!
We hope you had a nice holiday.
The January Newsletter is posted,
and the Dates To Remember are updated. You'll
find all of these in the column on the left.
Well, Mr. Lucas & Mrs. Scoville kept their
promises. The students duct taped Mr. Lucas to the gymnasium
wall!! And Mrs. Scoville sported
colorful locks as she put on a show as a zany crossing guard
outside! Here are the photos to prove it.
Why did they do this? Thanks to all the great support at this
year's fall book fair, our sales were over $2600, the most our
school has ever made! So, we reached our goal of exceeding $2000 in
book sales and Mr. Lucas and Mrs. Scoville will be keeping their
end of the deal. Thanks again for all the support!
Our library will be receiving $1200 in books from Scholastic.
Check out the Halloween Howl photos in our

Foundation Canada is a
charitable organization which is the leading provider of
emergency medical information services linked to customized
medical bracelets and necklaces. We are pleased to be able to

14th birthday) through the No Child Without®
program in select schools. The financial support of the
Government of Canada and Lions Clubs allows students to receive
the MedicAlert membership for FREE.
