Just a reminder that there will not be school on Monday, November 12th in lieu of Remembrance Day.  

Today we talked about why we have Remembrance Day and what the poppy symbolizes.  Remembrance Day is quite an abstract concept for children to grasp; however, I feel it is important to begin talking about Remembrance Day at a young age.  We each shared our thoughts during our community circle after we read "A Poppy is to Remember" by Heather Patterson.  This weekend, may you all take a moment to remember those who fought, and those who are still fighting.
