Hello Firebirds,
 
Hope you all had a fun Halloween Weekend!!
 
❄️Ice Skating Party : We had our first event on Wednesday night and our Kinder- 2nd Grade families turned out in force!! Such a fun evening and wonderful to see our Community Spirit is so strong!! Even our Firebird Mascot made a special appearance! We had over 200 skaters and well over 300 hundred Firebird family members joining in the fun!! Our thanks to Principal Wong and all the teachers who were able to stop by, the students and families were so happy to see you! Huge thanks to our fabulous volunteers who signed up and those that jumped in last minute also - we couldn’t have done it without you all! 
**Lost & Found - a few items were left behind on Wednesday and these items are at the front office at school for you to pick up**. 
 
Roll on the next Ice Skating Party - we can’t wait!!! 
On Wednesday Nov 3rd we will have our 3rd-5th grade Party at Winter Lodge, 5:30-7:30pm! 
Once again students, siblings and Adults are welcome to skate, but you need to purchase a ticket to do so. Winterlodge will provide supervision on the ice for all skaters. Helmets and Gloves are recommended and we would appreciate you keeping your facemask on when possible. We will have pizza, cookies and hot chocolate available for all attendees. 
We learned a few lessons from last week and to maximize your time at the party, this time we will close our pre-sales at 1pm on Wednesday and we will have a faster check in process!! We will also have ticket sales at the door and you will be able to pay either by cash or card. 
1. For pre-sales sign up here now!! (Please don’t forget to sign the waiver, this covers you not only for the ice skating event, but for all upcoming PTA events.)
2. If you are joining us, please consider volunteering 30 minutes of your time here.
 
🗓PTA General Meeting : Mark your calendar! We will have our next General Meeting on November 4th @ 7pm. Our special guest will be Annie Rubin, a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist (and Fairmeadow parent!), who will present on Top Tips to Help Your Child Eat More Vegetables. Annie specializes in autoimmune and inflammatory disorders. There will be a Q&A opportunity also. We will send out the zoom link closer to the date. You can click here to see our agenda.
 
🎃Halloween : We would like to say a big thank you to all our amazing Room parents and volunteers who worked with their class teachers to help create fun parties and activities for each classroom.
