PJ Walk in Support of Ronald McDonald House Charities Ottawa

Thank you to everyone who participated in the first annual Ronald McDonald PJ Walk. We were all super cozy in our PJs and had fun doing activities in the gym. As a school, we fundraised $390. Well done!

Dental Screening for Kindergarten and Grade 2 Students - March 5th

Annie Sauvé, a registered dental hygienist with Ottawa Public Health, will provide a dental screening using a tongue depressor on March 5, 2020, for 1st and 2nd Year kinders, grade 2 students, and other children as necessary. If your child’s grade is not selected, but you wish for the dental hygienist to see him/her, please advise the school. All children screened will bring home a report. Follow-up school visits by the dental hygienist for individual children may be done. The screening helps identify children with oral problems, dental needs and pain. Free dental care may be possible, if eligible. THE SCREENING DOES NOT REPLACE REGULAR DENTAL VISITS WITH YOUR FAMILY DENTIST.
