 PTA President's Message 

Addison Community - 

The PTA has many roles. The one I enjoy most is bringing our community together.  It is with much regret that I have to announce that one of our Addison traditions - the Ice Skating Parties - will not take place this school year. Unfortunately, we were not able to secure dates at Winter Lodge for this event. We will resume the Ice Skating Parties during the 2020-21 school year. Although we won’t have a chance to ice skate side by side this winter, the PTA will be offering other opportunities to bring our school community together this Winter & Spring.

School will be closed Mon, Nov 25 - Fri, Nov 29 for Thanksgiving Break. The eAdvisor will  resume on Sun, Dec 8.

As we draw closer to the start of the holiday season, I would like to take this opportunity to wish the entire Addison community a very Happy Thanksgiving! And to offer a special thanks to SPECTRA Art Teacher and Addison Parent Aleksandra Dudukovic for volunteering each month to host Noon Art for our Gr 1-5 students - this month's project looks great on our family's front door!

My best,
