Every Minute Matters
Did you know that missing just 10 minutes of school a day means nearly 33 lost instructional hours over the course of a school year - that is the equivalent of 5 full days! 20 minutes a day would be 10 lost days. That is a lot of valuable learning time for our students!
Help us make every instructional moment couny, by ensuring that students are at school on time and are only picked up early when absolutely necessary.
Jr. Panthers Remember...
Each year, as November 11th draws near, students and schools across our District pause to remember our vetrans past and present, and give thanks for their sacrifice.
This year, Remembrance Day falls on a Saturday, so we will not be able to attend the Picton ceremonies as a school. We will however honour very special day with wreath displays in the foyer and a moment of silence on Friday, November 10th. Some of our Gr. 6 students will also share Remembrance Day readings over the announcement throughout the week.
Beginning in November, we will be offering hot lunch options every Wednesday - either Pizza or the Vic Café “Piggy Bowl”. $3.00 each. Please see calendar for further details.
Pizza orders will be collected on Wednesday mornings of the specific week. Vic orders will be due the Monday before. Please send funds with your child at that time if you would like to order hot lunch for the week.
Progress Report cards will be carried home by all students on Friday, November 17th. Staff will then be reaching out to parents to set up times for parent-teacher conferences. Please stay tuned for more information regarding dates.
School Council Initiatives
We are very pleased to have such a large and dedicated School Council this year, who are committed to supporting our students. We will be fundraising throughout the year to purchase new swings and ensure that the playground is ready for our children next year when we move to PECI. Two upcoming fundraising initiatives are:
1) Gift Card Program (will carry on throughout the year - more information to follow)
2) Wrapping Paper brochure Program (catalogues will come home this week and our campaign will run for two weeks)
We will also be putting school floats in both the Bloomfield and Picton Santa Claus Parades this year. If you can be of any assistance with any of these initiatives, please let us know. Thank you!
We would love to have you join us at our next meeting on Monday, November 20th, beginning at 6:00 p.m.

Safe School Arrival Program
In our efforts to ensure the safety of each of our students, we ask that parents contact the school if their children will be absent. Our office is open from 7:30-3:30. Should you wish to call outside of office hours, you may leave a message on our answering machine, at (613) 476-6475.
Nut Allergy Alert
Queen Elizabeth School is a nut and peanut free zone. We have a number of students in our school community with life-threatening nut allergies.
In our attempt to provide a safe environment for all members of our school community who live with anaphylaxis, we ask that all snacks and lunches be free from any nuts or nut products. Please carefully read the labels of all foods sent to school, to ensure that products do not contain traces of nuts or nut products. Should a student bring items containing nuts or traces of nuts, the products will be removed from the classroom immediately, and returned home at the end of the day.
Thank you for helping us to ensure the safety of our students, staff and guests.
