Principal's Message

Principal's Message - Week of Oct. 27

Hello Falgarwood families,

Please read this message in its entirety as it contains some important information. A reminder to also read all correspondence from the Halton District School Board.

Halloween Dance 

Thank you to our School Council for supporting our school dance. The dance will be on Tuesday, October 31st. Each class will have a participation time to visit the dance. Students may wear a costume, or orange and black, but they may not wear masks, or bring a weapon to school. If a student chooses not to participate in the dance, there will be activities such as games, colouring books and a movie set up in our library. There will also be an opportunity to visit our Tuck Shop to purchase some snacks for all students. The Tuck Shop will be at the front hallway of the school and classes will have a scheduled time to visit. All goods will be $2 or less. Proceeds from the Tuck Shop will be going towards technology, the arts, physical education and community engagement for our students!

We have had some cases of headlice here at Falgarwood. Please be sure to check your child’s hair regularly. If lice are present, be sure to use the proper shampoo that can be obtained from a pharmacy as well as wash their bedding, clothes and hair brushes. The Halton District School Board no longer checks student hair at school and it is up to families to work together to make sure lice is not present in hair before students return to school. If you have any questions, please call the office and we can help you! Thank you for your support.

Breakfast Program
Our breakfast program is a huge success. Thanks to our student leadership and staff who have been organizing and facilitating this valuable program. Any student who require a morning snack or breakfast may do so.

School Website
Be sure to look at our school website that has weekly information that is regularly updated. The calendar is updated with daily school activities. There is also a section for school announcements.

Settlement Worker
On Thursday, November 2nd at 2 pm in the Falgarwood library (in-person), our settlement worker will be hosting a presentation regarding Progress Reports.

Google Classroom
Each class has a Google Classroom. Be sure to connect with your child’s Google Classroom as teachers will be posting classroom information there. Remember to check our school website as it is updated weekly and contains information on student activities. Both communication modules will have important information for our community. 

Student Leadership
Teachers have been starting leadership clubs for students to participate in. We now have Ambassadors, Athletic Council, Recycling Team, and more! We are looking forward to a vibrant and engaged student and school community.

As the weather changes, be sure to dress for the weather as students will be going outside to enjoy the weather and time with their friends.

Thanks to our new staff and leadership team, as our culture here is kind, caring, positive and uplifting. Together we are putting students and their families first. We look forward to working with you and continuing this positive, collaborative and enriched learning climate.
